Data about transport in London!

  1. Thanks for this post. A very useful analysis. It seems to me we urgently need better information to draw reliable conclusions. For example, I suspect a lot of cycling is on LCN routes away from the TLRN. This I suspect is particularly the case in outer London.

    The suggestion from the DfT figures that cycling levels or distance in London did not change significantly between 2005 and 2009 fails the sanity test.
    If you examine which sites were actually counted, and when, and how they guess the data for the missing counts then it is clear to see that DfT data on cycling in London is useless.
    Any conclusions about trends, casualty rates or anything else is meaningless and misleading.

    Perhaps the DfT data is wrong, but don’t expect people to just take your word for it. Why exactly does the methodology make the estimates ‘useless’?

    It might also be helpful if you indicated which set of figures you think gives the best indicator, and why.
