Chart of the day: Unmet demand for cycling in Southwark
Over the last five years, Southwark council has carried out surveys into the travel habits and preferences of pupils in 89 of its 111 schools. The survey records the mode of transport the pupils currently use to get to school, and asks them what their preferred mode would be. The chart below shows the results for bus, walking and cycling, with current rate on the left and preferred rate on the right.
Around 20% of pupils would like to cycle to school, but only 3% actually do.
