Transport performance
The total transport performance concerns the total number of passenger kilometres: the total distance travelled by residents of the Netherlands aged 6 years or older in private households, so excluding residents of institutions and homes. The transport performance is the sum of the total regular passenger-kilometres and the passenger-kilometres of series of calls trips. The transport performance does not include the kilometres of (professional) road transport with a heavy goods vehicle and kilometres travelled by aircraft.
