How Britons get about 15 Oct 2010

Planes, trains and automobiles

The car continues to dominate the traveling lives of the British public. Whilst there has been a marked increase in bus use in London, this is the exception. Outside the capital the rates of public transport use have not changed significantly except for more occsional use of the train.

These are the conclusions drawn by David Leibling in his study for the RAC Foundation, drawing mainly on data from the British Social Attitudes Survey but also the National Travel Survey.
