This article discusses why consumers in Great Britain should have access to better coordinated transportation statistics. Publishing data for the main modes of transport would enable and encourage the public to compare different modes in terms of safety, punctuality, cost and other factors. The most detailed transport statistics available to the public relate to rail, guaranteeing a steady stream of headlines for the industry. The cost of travel is one area where public perceptions may be warped. The record could be put straight by an annual digest of statistics showing the average cost of travel by each mode. Bulletins showing how each type of transportation modes perform are also important. A regular bulletin of transport safety statistics could be started before any institutional reorganization.
