These statistics are published weekly except for specific periods like the recent return to school period where we published daily.

For each day, the Department for Transport produces statistics on:

  1. road traffic in Great Britain
  2. rail passenger journeys in Great Britain
  3. Transport for London (TfL) tube and bus routes
  4. bus travel in Great Britain (excluding London)
  5. cycling in England

The full time series for these statistics, starting 1 March 2020, is usually published here every Wednesday at 2pm. These statistics were published daily for the duration of the return to school period where changes were taking place each day as different sets of schools returned, but in the main we publish these statistics on a weekly basis.

The associated methodology note sets out information on the data sources and methodology used to generate these headline measures.

For the charts previously published alongside daily coronavirus press conferences, please see the slides and datasets to accompany coronavirus press conferences.
