The Department for Transport has today published the third edition of

Focus on Personal Travel.

This in-depth National Statistics publication aims to provide readers

with an introduction to the major trends in personal travel and a

greater depth of understanding of some of the current areas of

interest, debate and development.

This edition has been revised and restructured to look at some areas in more depth, notably travel by men, women and children, and social inclusion and accessibility


There are chapters covering the following topics:

* Travel trends

* How people travel

* Why people travel

* Travel by men, women and children

* Social inclusion and accessibility

* Travel by area type and region

* Travel costs and expenditure

The complete publication, including a summary, can be found on the

department's website together with all the

data underlying the tables and graphics.


Focus on Personal Travel is published about every three years. Most of

the data in the publication are drawn from the National Travel Survey

(NTS), updated to 2002/2003, but for some areas other sources have

been used to provide a broader perspective.

Focus on Personal Travel: 2005 edition (ISBN 011 552658-7) is also

available from the TSO, priced£36.
