The determining factors in the modal part of public transport in 100 towns around the world. - A survey introduced in this article draws upon the database assembled by the UITP (International Association of Public Transport), « The Millennium Cities Database ». This database provides an overview of urban transport systems in 100 urban areas.The data concerns among other things demographic factors, urban structure, transport networks, mobility and environmental effects, etc. The analysis of this information makes it possible to draw up several profiles of urban areas, highlighting a marked division between a « European-style mobility » and an « American-style mobility ». It subsequently explores the possible relationships between the market share of public transport systems and considers on the one hand the geographical and economic conditions, and on the other hand the characteristics and performance of transport systems. Finally, an econometric approach makes it possible to test the statistical validity of the relationships highlighted.
