Despite car travel still being a popular form of transport, studies have shown that fewer of us are using cars to get to and from work on a regular basis.
Although 67% of commuters do still drive to work, this number has fallen by 2% over the last decade. Study leader, Dr Anna Goodman from the London School of Hygiene and Topical Medicine, suggests that the results highlight a decline in the rate of car use and an increase in the number of people using alternative forms of transport to commute such as electric scooters.
Whilst the cost of maintaining a car seems to rise each year, many are finding that using an alternative method of transport is far cheaper and more cost effective in the long run. In addition to this, more environmentally friendly types of transport are welcomed by those keen to reduce their carbon footprint or limit the negative impact of travel on the environment.
With more and more people turning to public transport, it seems the investment into our transport systems will pay off. Technological advances combined with a radical new re-design have resulted in new buses being introduced in London, much to passengers delight but plans haven’t stopped there.
Young designer, Alex Schey, has been working on a design which could make hybrid buses a reality in our cities whilst Chinese manufacturer BYD are committed to introducing solely electric buses to the market. As technology continues to advance and find a place in our transport systems, it seems that fewer and fewer of us will rely on our cars to commute.
With good transport links around the country, you made find that you’re already relying on your car less and less. With some households already having more than one car, many are deciding to scale back and sell one or both of their cars.
