Centre for London, Transport Survey

Survey of Londoners on their use of public transport, and the associated costs and barriers with using public transport.

  • A bus or tram and walking (all the way to a destination rather than to a bus stop or station) are the modes of travel London residents use most frequently, with seven in ten (69%) Londoners saying they use these for work or leisure at least once a week.
  • On average, London residents spend £137 or approximately 7% of their take home income a month on transport costs (e.g. their car, public transport and travel services such as taxis, bike hire or car clubs).
  • London residents are most likely to say crowding, cost and availability are barriers to increasing their use of the tube or rail.
