As part of our research for the PASTA (Physical Activity through Sustainable Transport Approaches) project, we ran a two-year survey starting in autumn 2014, which looked at the travel patterns of more than 10,000 people in seven cities across Europe, namely Antwerp, Barcelona, London, Örebro, Rome, Vienna, Zürich.
We recently closed the survey and are currently analysing the data that we have collected.
Initial findings from the data indicating that people who drive cars as their main form of transport are on average 4kg heavier than those who cycle were shared via a press release, which can be viewed here.
Journal articles about PASTA can be found on the publication page, here
A short summary of the findings from the survey is available here.
Luc, the survey lead from VITO , explains why we are carried out this survey and how it feeds into the project as a whole. Other partners involved in this survey include; BOKU, UZH, CREAL, ICL, Trivector, and ;Roma Servizia.
