Transport Statistics Great Britain

Statistical trends on the British transport sector.

The Department for Transport are reviewing the way in which Transport Statistics Great Britain (TSGB) is published. We are carrying out a user feedback survey to see how we can make TSGB a better, more informative and more user friendly publication moving forward. All contributions to this survey would be welcomed.

Transport Statistics Great Britain (TSGB) is DfT’s main statistical compendium publication. It describes the major statistical trends in the British transport sector, and is normally published in December each year.

For much of the contents of TSGB, topic-specific DfT statistical publications during the year provide the first release of data, which is consolidated into TSGB at a later date. The online versions of TSGB tables are updated dynamically, throughout the year, as new data becomes available. However, each online edition of TSGB includes a ZIP archive file containing ‘snapshots’ of all tables taken at the point of TSGB’s release. This ZIP file is not updated and its contents will therefore be consistent with any hard-copy editions of TSGB that are produced.

Transport Statistics Great Britain editions from 2011 onwards are published on this website. Previous editions of TSGB are available from the National Archives at the links below. Earlier editions beyond 2002 are available on request.

Technical information

Most of the statistics are derived from the department’s main annual Transport Statistics Great Britain report.

Further information on all related topics from Transport statistics Great Britain are available on the guidance page.
