The article reveals the patterns and problems of the passenger transport system operation in St. Petersburg. The author has built a geo-informational model containing a graph of routes for all types of urban passenger transport. A direct correlation is shown between the pedestrian or transport accessibility of the halting point and the number of passengers transported from this point. A spatial analysis of passenger flows on the routes of land transport, the network of electric trains and at the subway has been made. The role of each transport type in the operation of the system is determined. The non-transport effect from the organization of the off-street public transport system has been determined and calculated for one section of the perspective transport network.
