This work aims to present analysis on the impacts of mobility in its relationship with urban management through the intersection of social, spatial and intersectoral data from a small to medium-sized city in Brazil. By intersectoral data we define the information obtained in different sectors of the state - regional – and municipal administration that correspond to public transport and mobility in different strata of the urban space. The Municipal Government Plan of São João del-Rei (PGM, 2016-2024) regarding mobility has a fragile base of studies, data surveys and analyses that allow effective guidance of public policies and legislation. This research approach, besides the PGM study, independent analyses made from information collected about the location, the incidence of traffic accidents by the Civil Police (2016-2020) under State jurisdiction and spatialized data from the Brazilian Geographic and Statistical Institute (IBGE) such as ethnic-racial, educational and income. Understanding that the debate on mobility follows the scale of the place and its geopolitical location, if there is inequality in social, economic and schooling terms, the problems are not restricted to object systems - urban form - but to its inseparability from action systems. This debate proves relevant because the South and Latin America’s challenges are also decolonial and do not correspond to immediate responses or those guided by exclusively formal problems, so that they are sustainable. Data spatialization processes were carried out from different approaches that intersect with those of urban morphology, seeking to establish indicators and guidelines for integrative public policies for the municipality. This perspective on mobility begins at the impacts of intersectionality in its relationship with urban management. In a complex overlay of information, forged from data of different origins and character, it is possible to indicate the correlations in impacts that interact with the physical form of the urban space.
