Abstract : This paper deals with the study of plural perceptions of the urban landscape during a public transport journey daily lived by users and non-users of electronic devices such as a Walkman, mobile phone... To assess possible cultural appreciations of the public transport users in their representation of soundscapes, this experiment was conducted in the tramway of Bordeaux (France) and in the "tren ligero" of Guadalajara (Mexico). The followed protocol consisted of two phases: a way out with an "electronic device" and a way back without. During these two trips, we provided on the one hand recordings of the soundscapes using the methodology developed by GRECAU allowing having objectifiable data and on the other hand interviews with the subjects from which changes in feelings and behaviors were interpreted.
