(a) Change in passenger-kilometres by bus and rail, car ownership and energy consumption by road between 1993 and 1999 in selected countries and b) modal split in passenger-kilometres in 2000 for selected ACs
For bus/coach transport Total AC refers to Slovenia, Slovakia, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and the Czech-Republic. The change in car ownership and the change in passenger-km by rail apply to the 1993-98 period. (b) EU-15, UK and Austria have been added for comparison. Austria and the United Kingdom are the EU-15 countries with the lowest and the highest private car share respectively. Air traffic is not included since a shift towards other modes is not reasonably possible and national air transport only plays a very limited role.
