Table description


This table contains information regarding the mobility of the residents of the Netherlands aged 6 or older in private households, so excluding residents of institutions and homes. The table contains per person per day /year an overview of the average number of trips, the average distance travelled and the average time travelled. These are regular trips on Dutch territory, including domestic holiday mobility. The distance travelled is based on stage information. Excluded in this table is mobility based on series of calls trips. The mobility behaviour is broken down by trip characteristics, purposes of travel, population and regions. The data used are retrieved from The Dutch National travel survey named Onderweg in Nederland (ODiN).

Data available from: 2018

Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are final.

Changes as of 10 February 2022:
None, this is a new table

When will new figures be published?
Figures for the 2021 research year will be published in mid-2022

Description topics

Average per person per day
This is the average over all persons of living in the Netherlands in private households, so excluding residents of institutions and homes. The average also includes people who indicated that they had not travelled on the survey day.
Trips
The average number of trips per person per year. A trip, is a one-way course of travel with a single main purpose regardless of whether one or more means of transport are used. Switching to another mode of transport does not count as a new trip. In tables showing trips in combination with mode of transport, the main mode of transport is used. For trips made with multiple modes of transport, the vehicle with which the longest distance has been travelled is the main mode of transport. For example, when travelling from home to work with successively the bicycle (3 km) to the station, the train (50 km) and on foot (1 km) to the office, the entire trip is counted as one train trip of 54 km.
Distance travelled
The average number of passenger kilometres travelled by a person in a year. The distance travelled per mode of travel is counted on basis of mode of transport of a stage so that pre-transport and post-transport are measured separately. For example, when travelling from home to work with successively the bicycle to the station, the train and on foot to the office, the passenger kilometers for the three modes of transport are counted separately.
Time travelled
This is the average travel time per person per year based on trips. In the case of trips made with several modes of transport, a main mode of transport is determined on the basis of use at the longest distance. For example, a trip from home to work with successively the bicycle (3 km) to the station, the train (50 km) and on foot (1 km) to the office, is counted as one train trip of 54 km.
