in answer to your questions

regarding my last note: a variety of additional ways of visualising the issue of modal split and short journeys.

    Mildly surprised to see car passenger holds its own against driver as well as it does.

    Car use for journeys 2-5 is the tragedy. Be interesting to see that interval as proportion of total journeys too to combine the two. (yes I realise you’re probably getting bored of this :) )

    hmm? The first of the 3 charts already tells you the proportions of the different distance intervals. Unless you mean you want one with modes on the x and distance on the y? I’m sure somebody must have already done such a thing — it’s from the National Travel Survey and I only bothered to do charts for things that weren’t already in the reports

      Sorry, I think I was getting confused by some slight mislabelling – the bars on the first chart are surely 0-1, 1-2, etc, rather than 100″. Otherwise the sections would have to get progressively bigger going up the chart (vertically) and that would be rather unhelpful. I realise that sounds pedantic but it led me to assume (incorrectly) that chart one had the same problem chart two does (which temporarily confused @katsdecker and which is addressed by chart three).

      So now I can see that ~20% of GB journeys were between 1-2 miles, and 36.84% of those were by someone driving, so the product, ~7.4% of all journeys consisted of people driving between one and two miles (for example). And I find that breakdown vaguely interesting. Almost 4% of journeys are people driving plus passengering less than a mile.

      Am I making sense? I’ll take a look at the survey too. Thanks.

        Dammit. Now wordpress mistook my lessthan and morethan for a tag and removed some text:
