Transport connectivity and accessibility of key services statistics

This series brings together all documents relating to transport connectivity and accessibility of key services

See all statistics published by DfT

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 2011-2015 Business Plan.

We are currently reviewing the transport accessibility statistics series and we would be very grateful for users’ views via this survey on whether these statistics are still needed, and if so, whether they meet user needs or could be improved. This information will be used to help plan future transport statistics, making the best use of the resources available. If you do not respond, we will not be able to take your views into account.

Please note that for technical reasons only the cycle and car transport modes have been updated for 2012, and the public transport/walking mode has not. Please see the 2012 statistical release for more details.
