New UK transport figures show a ‘disappointing’ fall in ridership as traffic becomes congested

Transport for London (TfL) has published a new report that shows the number of UK trips taken by vehicles has dropped significantly over the last year.

The figures show that for every 1,000 UK residents, just 2,800 vehicles were used to get from one place to another in the year ending March 2017.

The report notes that there are now fewer than 20,000 vehicles on the road, down from about 30,000 in the previous year.

It also notes that, on average, the number travelling by vehicle per person has fallen by almost a third over the past year. 

TfB also found that for each 1,500 UK residents travelling by private vehicle, there are just 1,700 who use public transport.

This is a drop of nearly a third.

TfS report says UK drivers are taking on more and more drivers in the first half of 2018, with an average of 15,000 drivers per month driving more than one vehicle per day.

This number will continue to rise as people begin to drive less, and fewer vehicles on roads are required to handle the load.
