How do you usually travel to your main job or course of study(including school)?

I use more than one method of transport. How do I answer?

If you use more than one method of transport, select the one you use for the longest part of the journey by distance.

For example:

  • if you travel by train for two miles and then take a bus for one mile, select ‘Train’
  • if you drive a car for three miles and then walk the last half-mile from the car park, select ‘Driving a car or van’

If you use more than one type of transport and you are not sure which one covers the most distance of your journey to work or place of study, use your best guess to select one option.

I use a different method of transport on different days. How do I answer?

If you use different transport on different days, choose the one you use most often. If you use them equally, select the one you used most recently.

I car share, how do I answer?

If you usually car share with someone and spend an equal amount of time driving and being a passenger in a car or van, select the most recent option.

I am usually a passenger on a motorbike, scooter or moped. Do I select the ‘Motorbike, scooter or moped’ option?

Yes, select this option if you are a passenger on any of these for your usual journey to work or place of study.
