How Great Britain Travels to Work

The map above uses UK census data to connect where people live and where they work. It helps to illustrate the flows of transportation and complex network of urban relationships, as well as how people travel to work. You can see how many Brits travel to work by car, public transport or walking/cycling with a RGB colour scheme.

Interesting Points:

• You can clearly see London’s extensive public transport network as compared to other major English cities, which rely more heavily on cars.
• Scottish cities like Glasgow and Edinburgh are popular for public transport although they are smaller than England’s northern cities.
• Walking and cycling is minimal overall - with Cambridge, York & Hull performing the best among cyclists.
