The goal of this research can be summarized in analyse the networks and logistic flows of the intracity public transport passengers’ , about the spacial organization of Ourinhos’ borough in the state of São Paulo and the verification of the spacial interactions achieved through this relief transport’s mean, redeeming the transport theme formely present at the classical Geography. The borough posses single characteristics making an important motor-railway junction and regional prominence at the sector of trade, both profoundly connected to its social economical education. The belated modernization of transports, in this borough, today reflects in acessibility problems to population, problems at the road infrastructure, low levels of services, overcoat, on its peripherical nucleus and social-spacial segregation of people who lives in, whose mobility is, for these reasons, restricted. The city still posses, a railway line which cleaves the down’town and construct another difficulty fact to the spacial interactions. The solar networks’ model whose function is the physical rating intramodal integration of urban bus in a bail terminal at the down’town, it is pioneer in cities with the carriage as Ourinhos ( 104.000 habitants), we mean, in transition between small and par cities, and conduct preponderantly, displaces to down’town. The development of a city oriented by an unique center bracely can converts itself in urbans none-economies. The contrary happens when we criate acessibilities to the transport because we contribute with the animation to others urban knots, collaborating with the great mobility of Ourinhos’ townspeople. It can convert them from bus passengers to social transformation agents.
