Abstract Based on the traffic model developed by the authors for the major part of the area of the future Silesia Metropolis (in Poland), the change directions of the public and individual transportation tendencies in the coming few decades are discussed in the paper. The model is relevant to ca. 85% of the analysed area (Silesia Metropolis). All of the twelve cities included in the modelling are the core of the future Silesia Metropolis, i.e. lie within the trans-European corridors or within the direct catchment areas thereof. The basic principles that underlay route choice behaviour of individual travellers (ca. 2 million) in this area, were developed by authors from Silesian University of Technology, Faculty of Transport, Department of Traffic Engineering.
