Almost half of people taking part in a travel survey made no trips by car, bus or train in the early stage of the Government’s Covid-19 movement restrictions.
Transport Focus contacted 15,808 people on its Transport User Panel on 2 April to ask about their travel in the last seven days. Responses were received from 5,791 panellists.
Forty-six per cent said they had not made a journey using car/van, bus or train.
When asked why, 88 per cent said they had been following the Government’s instruction not to travel and 22 per cent said they had no reason to make a journey.
Of the 54 per cent who had made a journey by these modes, 80 per cent did so by car/van, 20 per cent by bus, and seven per cent by train. The main reasons for trips were shopping (77 per cent), work (21 per cent), and caring for friends/relatives (17 per cent).
