People made 757 trips on average in 2021….

365 days in 2021….so more than 2 trips a day on average *every* day. I find that hard to believe.

Are they including car trips as well?

Yes, and walking and cycling trips too.  31% of trips were walking and their total distance was short - I wonder how short some were - walking the bin to the end of the road?

Here's some more stats from DfT» (Department for Transport - about) - an update today to the passenger numbers and crowding datasets. This is basically about commuting, and the latest data are for Autumn 2021, so it's still showing Covid effects rather than after-effects.

This little excerpt is the most striking, showing how the number seats provided into Paddington has risen with longer trains, but not matched passenger numbers. Then with Crossrail there was a huge boost in the number of standing places, while (to 2021) the number of passengers had halved!

             services   seats    capacity   max load      PiCX      
2011
1 hour peak   25    8,842     9,914      11,254       1,671   15%
3 hour peak   66   21,881   24,672      24,352      2,606   11%

2018
1 hour peak   24   11,320   14,268      14,748      2,002   14%      
3 hour peak   66   29,494   38,506      33,362      3,101   9%      
2021
1 hour peak   24   11,034   22,940       6,638       0          0%
3 hour peak   64   30,001   64,849      15,874      0          0%

I do hope they can produce this autumn's figures a big quicker than that, though in past years it was still not ready until July!
