Europeans spend most of their travel time in cars
Highlights
People’s need for easy access to goods and services has increased the
demand for transport. However, despite improvements in the means of public
transport, this need is predominately satisfied by the use of private cars.
Chart 1 shows that in the European countries with available data people
spend on average an hour per day travelling. More than half of this time is
spent on travel by car.
Chart 1: Average travel time/person/day
Moreover, people in most countries make on average 3 trips per day and
travel between 30 and 40 kilometres per day.
Regarding the purpose of travelling, leisure activities are the main reason,
accounting for more than 40% of the time spent on travel in most of the
countries with available information. Work is the second main reason for
travelling. This situation is similar no matter whether analysing the distribution
by travel time or by distance travelled.
