ABSTRACT
The travel habits of residents in Great Britain and how various factors affect their habits were revealed in a bulletin updating the National Travel Survey for 1997 to 1999. It was found that distance traveled by residents increased by 28 percent in the period 1997 to 1999 compared to 1985 and 1986. A total of just over two weaks was spent each year traveling around the country, with 61 percent spent traveling by car and three days walking. The car was the most dominant mode of transport for all journeys over one mile. Men traveled more often and at greater distance than women. Almost a third of the trips were for leisure purposes. The percentage of rural households with good access to a bus service increased from 35 percent in 1985 to 1986 to 42 percent in 1997 to 1999.
