How the World Commutes

This article is published in collaboration with Statista

by Martin Armstrong

The latest results from Statista's Global Consumer Survey have revealed how people around the world commute to work, school or uni. As this infographic shows, there are substantial differences between the countries selected when it comes to the use of cars, bicycles and public transport. The Netherlands' reputation as bike enthusiasts is confirmed, with 38 percent - by far the largest proportion - saying they complete their commute with their own bicycle.

The U.S. has the lowest share of respondents saying they take the bike, at just 6 percent, with the vast majority, 82 percent choosing or having to drive with their car. Of course, to some extent the commuting methods are driven by the extent and state of infrastructure for cycling and public transport. India's low figure for car usage is made up for in the two-wheeled category. Here, 31 percent and 16 percent said they use their motorcycle or motor scooter, respectively.
