According to a new NAF survey, as many as 46% of Norwegians have traveled less by public transport, 32% have walked to work and school more during the pandemic year.

One in five Norwegians has used the car more, but just as many used the car less than they usually did in 2020. The biggest difference is among public transport users – as many as 40% of those who usually use buses and 53% of those who typically use trams or metro chose to travel by car more often.

A total of 999 people responded to the survey conducted by TNS Kantar for NAF in November-December 2020.

Only 2% of the population used public transport more than usual in 2020. At the same time, 10% got on their bikes more to get to work or school, and as many as 32% walked more often.

Figures from Statistics Norway (SSB) in March showed that the number of public transport trips in Norway fell by 265 million passengers, or 38%, in 2020.
