A Twitter user has created a startling graph showing that, on the current trajectory, cycle use in central London will soon overtake use of private motor vehicles. @lastnotlost created the graph using official figures contained in today’s release of Transport Statistics Great Britain 2017.
The statistics compendium from the Department for Transport is released annually. The graph was produced with raw data contained in TSGB0106 – “People entering central London during morning peak” – and shows that since 2003 car use has been in a steep decline and cycle use has been on a corresponding growth spurt. Use of taxis and motorcycles have also reduced, but at a much slower rate.
