Changing travel trends

Our report on changing car and train travel trends reveals some fascinating trends between 1997 and 2010, including:

  • driving licence holding amongst women has grown by 14%
  • driving licence holding amongst young men (20-29) fell by 13%
  • company car mileage fell by 50%

Once company car mileage is excluded, then those aged 30 and over outside London actually increased their car mileage right up to the 2007 recession. This group accounts for 70% of the British adult population.
