How has mobility changed in Germany? The German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure studied almost a million journeys made in 2017 by over 156,000 households.
The study found that Germans travel slightly less on an average day compared to 2008, with a drop from 90% to 85%. however, the number of kilometres travelled per journey increased slightly.
The car remains the dominant and popular mode of transport, while bike, bus and train are becoming more popular. The steady growth of individual motorised traffic in the last decades is stagnating.
