National Travel Survey (NTS)

Main uses

NTS is a longstanding and wide-ranging survey of personal travel information for Great Britain and is the only obvious source for such information.



In summary:

The actual NTS dataset is not publicly available.  Rather, what is available is a series of tables published by the Department for Transport from the dataset.  As well as the spreadsheet itself, there is an annual report which contains all the tables together with some commentary.
