The article indicates that in transport analysis it is important to take account of the diversity of transport behaviour of population in the function of place of residence and area development. The results of transport behaviour of analysis have been presented according to the database of surveys from the selected Province (Kujawsko-Pomorskie, Poland). Major differences have been shown in the results of basic characteristics that describe the method of taking trips by residents of cities, towns, suburban municipalities, and rural areas. Moreover, it has been pointed out that surveys conducted in a reliable manner as well as the proper analysis of their results have the crucial importance for the correct operation of transport models, being the basic tool in verifying transport plans, thus affecting the final results of prepared documents related to transport policy in analysed areas.
