The line graph provides information on the number of people who travel to work daily by three modes of transportation from 1970 to 2030. It can be observed that daily commuting by car will remain the most popular form of transportation over the period of 60 years. The trend of commuting by car and bus is going to move at an upward trend. In contrast, commuting to work by bus is forecasted to move at a downward trend.
In 1970, 5 million people commuted to work by car every day, the highest for that period. This figure rose steeply after 1980 and is expected to continue rising to peak at 9 million in 2030. Commuting by train was the least popular in 1975 at close to 2.5 million daily commuters. In 2030, it is expected to become the second most common transport mode for commuters.
In contrast, in 1975, travelling to work by bus was the second most popular form of transport. By 2030, this number is forecasted to drop gradually to reach its lowest point at slightly less than 3 million commuters, making it the least common form of transportation for workers.
