This text compares mobility behaviours in Belgium according to the degrees of urbanisation of their places of residence. Two urbanisation variables are built on the basis of functional organisation of urban regions, and of morphological continuity of built-up areas. Personal mobility is analysed through aggregated indicators measured for geographical areas of different degrees of urbanisation, and through the comparison of the activity programs of the people living in these areas. The analysis show that needs of mobility and organisations of activity programs, whether they are structured by work or not, are very similar wherever Belgians live. The level of urbanisation have some influence on the way trips are made, means of transport and distance of trips, but the time spent for transport is constant.
