Statistics at DfT

Department for Transport publishes official statistics relating to the transport system in Great Britain.


Transport use during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

To monitor the use of the transport system during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, DfT provides statistics on transport use by mode for each day since 1 March 2020, updated weekly at 9.30am on Wednesdays.

Statistics on transport use by mode

Developing faster indicators of transport activity

To monitor transport activity on a timelier basis for topical issues relating to transport, DfT has developed updates on the following:

Indicator Frequency of update Timing of update Date first published
Road haulier coronavirus testing in Great Britain Weekly Every Wednesday 11 March 2021
Large goods vehicle vocational testing in Great Britain Monthly Every second Wednesday 10 November 2021
Electric vehicle public charging devices available in the UK Monthly Every second Wednesday 7 December 2021

In special circumstances, the timing of updates might change for some indicators. Where applicable, the date of the next update will be added to the “Timing of update” field.

Some of the issues will be short term in nature, and the relevant updates will cease once the issue is no longer either in operation or of relevance.

Forthcoming publications

This schedule gives the planned publication dates of all of the department’s annual, quarterly and compendium statistical releases for the coming year.

For reasons of brevity, we have omitted the monthly release of statistics on UK international sea passengers, SPAS0107, usually released on the second Wednesday of each calendar month.

We are adapting our statistics publications in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Please see the background information for further details on these changes.
