A report showing information presented by main mode of travel and time taken.

The statistics have been taken from the 2005 and 2006 Living in Wales surveys, which is an annual Welsh household survey.

Key points

  • Of those respondents who live within a mile of their usual place of work, only half of those who work full-time walk to work.
  • Of those respondents who live within a mile of their usual place of work, those who work part-time are more likely to walk to work than those who work full-time.
  • Of those who live within three miles of their usual place of work, respondents in Scotland are three times more likely to use the bus to get to work than respondents in Wales.
  • Of those households in Wales with a school age child in full-time education, a higher proportion of those whose eldest child is in primary school are driven to school than walked to school.
