Travel Survey for NI 2012–14 17 December 2015

The Travel Survey for Northern Ireland (TSNI) in–depth report, containing statistics for 2012–2014, is now available

 

The publication is produced by the Central Statistics and Research Branch (CSRB) of the Department for Regional Development and contains information on trends in personal travel for Northern Ireland residents, how they travel, why they travel and some of the other factors affecting travel. The publication is available on the CSRB website at: https://www.drdni.gov.uk/articles/travel-survey-northern-ireland

Key points
The key points for 2012–2014 are:

· On average, Northern Ireland residents travelled 5,958 miles per year during 2012–2014. This is around the same as the average distance travelled per person per year in 2002–2004 (5,861 miles).

· In 2012–2014, each person made an average of 908 journeys each year. This has decreased from the 2002–2004 average of 963 journeys per person per year.

· Looking at the 17 and over age group, a higher proportion of men (83%) held full car driving licences than women (72%) in 2012–2014. Over the last ten years, there has been an increase in the proportion of women holding a car driving licence from 61% in 2002–2004 to 72% in 2012–2014, whereas there has been no real change in the proportion of men holding a licence during this time period.

· Car journeys accounted for 72% of all journeys made in 2012–2014, 17% were walks and 5% were journeys by public transport (Ulsterbus, Metro, Other Bus, Northern Ireland Railways, Black Taxi).

· Those living in the Belfast area (Belfast Local Government District prior to April 2015) travelled an average of 4,229 miles per year in 2012–2014, 29% lower than the Northern Ireland average (5,958 miles per person per year).

· Each person spent, on average, 299 hours per year travelling within Northern Ireland during 2012–2014 – just over 12 days each year or approximately 49 minutes per day. Around 33 minutes per day were spent travelling by car and eight minutes per day were spent walking. The results for 2002–2004 are comparable.
