Transport connectivity and accessibility of key services statistics

Transport connectivity and accessibility of key services information.

Accessibility statistics provide a local-level measure of the availability of transport to key services (covering food stores, education, health care, town centres and employment centres) for the populations who use them. They are used in accessibility planning by local authorities, as well as being the basis of an indicator in the department’s 2011 to 2015 business plan.

Connectivity statistics are an experimental development, which extend the approach to look at longer journeys to access fewer, more strategically significant destinations (in the first instance, focus is on access to transport destinations including airports, larger rail stations and major road junctions). We have published these statistics to get any feedback on their usefulness. We would be grateful for any user feedback via our online form
