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. We have recently changed to publish at 9.30am on Wednesdays reflecting process improvements to get the data out earlier than the previous 2.00pm Wednesday time.

Since early March, we are also now releasing summary statistics on the numbers of lateral flow tests conducted on hauliers, and the positivity rate of those tests.

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.

The journey times statistics series has been suspended. Please see the Journey times page for further details on these changes.
