The figure shows past (from 1990) and projected (until 2030) values for passenger transport demand within the EU-25. Results are presented both in absolute numbers (per category values for different means of transport summing up to total annual passenger transport demand in Gpkm for the years 1990-2030) and their respective percentage share of total passenger transport demand in Gpkm.
EEA-data on passenger transport demand in Gpkm was used, both in absolute numbers (directly from the EEA-homepage), and converted into percentage values representing the respective share of different means of transport (public road transport, private cars and motorcycles, rail, aviation, inland navigation). The latter was done by dividing category Gpkm values by total transport demand per decennial.

Be careful when buying for your garden. People are one of the main introducers of invasive species, especially flora. Many of the invasive species have been introduced for ornamental purposes. Do put an extra effort in finding out whether the plant you want is native to your environment.
