Cyclist Numbers

Volume 448: debated on Wednesday 5 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what estimate he has made of the number of people who travel by bicycle to work in London each day. (79397)

Transport for London (TfL) estimate that 216,000 work-related cycling trips are made each day. However, TfL is in the process of developing a project to track businesses with travel plans called iTRACE, which in future will provide much more accurate information on the issue of cycling to work. This is expected to be operational by 2008.
