ECONOMIC RECESSION BRINGS A HALT TO THE RISE IN PERSONAL TRAVEL MILEAGE

This short article summarises the findings in the most recent United Kingdom National Travel Survey. It indicates that the total amount of travel undertaken per head has not changed at all, which contrasts with the long term sustained growth that has continued uninterrupted. The average number of journeys per person has fallen, but miles travelled has been maintained. Miles travelled by car has continued to rise. South East England shows by far the highest level of activity. People aged between 30 and 59 make the most car journeys. Data on shopping trips are also provided.
