A study carried out by Omio, a travel platform and app that allows users to book long-distance travel by train, bus or plane throughout the continent, has analysed the transport options chosen by users in Europe. The analysis was carried out at the main European destinations. Influencing factors include the distribution and prices of public transport tickets, such as tramways, buses, trains and the availability and prices of shared transport means, such as taxis, bicycles, e-scooters, and motorcycles.
Walking and cycling are the cleanest and most efficient forms of transport, particularly suited for short to moderate distances. Both provide numerous benefits. They improve health, do not produce air or noise pollution and help to reduce congestion.
Introducing cycling infrastructure (e.g. bike lanes, bike parking and hire schemes) are ways in which cities can promote cycling, while creating pedestrian-friendly spaces can promote commuting, shopping and recreation.
