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.

Buying a new car?
Why not buy one of the new generation vehicles? A hybrid car consumes between 20 % and 30 % less fuel and generates far less CO2 than a classical vehicle. So why not pollute less and save money – all at once?
