Journeys by Public or Active Transport
The Scottish Household Survey shows the proportion of car journeys to work has been consistently around 67 per cent since 1999.
The Scottish Government has established a National Indicator to increase the proportion of journeys to work made by public or active transport. The indicator records the mode of transport by which adults say they usually travel to work. This is a proxy measure for 'journeys to work that are not car dependent'. The baseline for the indicator is taken from the 2006 data, where 66.8 per cent of journeys were by car or van.
Results are based on sample sizes between 5,200 and 6,200 (approx.).
