Keywords: metropolitan area, sustainable management, logit model, binary trip split model, isotrip lines

Abstract: The article proposes a new modelling framework for simulating flows of people between suburban areas and the metropolis. The model is based on a logit relationship used in researches of transport mode choice problems. After explaining the properties of the model, it is than applied to analyze Metropolitan Area - Poznań Urban Area, Poland. As results it has been found that the main factors influencing the number of trips between each suburban area and Poznań as a proportion of all trips to and from that area are distance from Poznań and population of the area. It was also found that some unknown factors also affect the phenomena. It was found that model can be used in such a context, although it is of a limited use in making inferences about areas for which data are not available and this area remains a subject for further research.
