AbstractThe paper presents the application of selected methods of multivariate statistical analysis including factor and conjoint analyses in terms of modelling transportation preferences of urban residents. The introduced methodologies can be useful tools for local authorities while designing solutions in order to improve the competitiveness of public transport as an alternative to private transport. The results of the studies presented in the article are part of the research project implemented in 2010-2013 under the title “Reference model of city logistics and the quality of life”. For the study undertaken in this paper, three medium-sized cities, located in the western part of Poland, were selected. The structure of the paper is as follows. The second section presents the determinants of change in communication behavior of urban residents, while the third section includes the significance of the applications of multidimensional statistical analysis in order to identify citizens’ transportation preferences and behaviours. The subsequent section introduces the research results and the final part of the paper presents the conclusion.
