    The ABS should in future follow Stats NZ’s change, and ask about journeys to work AND education. Although journeys to work gives us some information, it misses a large percentage of travel.

    I suspect that the composition of journeys to education is markedly different, and thus journeys to work may give us an incorrect impression of transport patterns in our cities and regions. Similarly, weekend travel patterns differ again, as do visits for recreation. Those using weekday journeys to work as shorthand for ‘total journeys’ will get an incomplete and possibly misleading impression of how transport is used.

    Another great article thanks for that. When I worked I rode my bike for most of the time, so done my bit. A shame here in WA I believe there has even been a decline in the use of public transport.
    I wonder if it could be something to do with less people working post boom?
    Certainly less overseas people coming in, which may have something to do with general falling demand.

    One thing on a more personal level. I seem to have been removed/taken off, last night from access to WA city profiles, as have a special interest in the regional cities of Albany, Bunbury and Geraldton. It appeared initially expectantly, so I thank you for that, any chance of being reinstated , at least for a short period? Many Thanks, Anton.
