VNR Indicator: Passenger transport by car, percentage of total inland transport in passenger-kilometres (pkm)

Definition: share of cars (plus mopeds and motorcycles) in passenger transport. The other modes of transport considered here are trains, tramways, busses, coaches and metro. Transport is measured in passenger-kilometre (for each journey, the number of kilometres is multiplied by the number of travellers).

Objective: to be on a path to reach the long-term goals of 50% of collective transport, this indicator should reach 65% in 2030.

UN Target 9.1: Develop quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient infrastructure, including regional and transborder infrastructure, to support economic development and human well-being, with a focus on affordable and equitable access for all
