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 an overview of the average distance per trip and the average travel duration per trip. 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.

Data available from: 2018

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

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

From 01-01-2020 on Statistics Netherlands will use the Frisian name (Fryslân) for the province of Friesland.

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

Description topics

Average distance travelled per trip
The average number of passenger kilometres travelled during regular trips. Regular passenger kilometres by mode of transport have been calculated on the basis of the stage mode so that the distances of means of transport used for pre- and post-transport are also measured separately. For example, in the case of a journey from home to work with successively the bicycle to the station, the train and on foot to the office, the passenger kilometres travelled by a stage mode of transport are assigned to the relevant mode of transport. Kilometres by plane are not counted. The number of trips counted is based on the main mode used in the trip.
Average travel time per trip
The average number of minutes travelled during a trip. To calculate the time travelled per mode the main travel mode of a trip is used. Per example, in case of a trip to work with successively the bicycle to the station, the train and on foot to the office, the entire travel duration of the trip is assigned to the train (main travel mode used in this trip).
