The way we travel has changed rapidly in the past few years, accelerated in part by COVID-19. Traffic statistics have shown a particular uptake in cycling at the start of the pandemic.

With an increasing number of VivaCity traffic sensors being used by Local Authorities across the UK, we have explored trends along active travel corridors in 2021, in particular: 

  • to understand the impact of Covid-19 related events such as easing of restrictions
  • to identify patterns and changes in cycling behaviour

Some of the insights contained in this summary report include: 

  • The increasing rate of cyclists during certain time periods
  •  Where modal shift happened and to which transport modes
  • The increase and trends in cycling commuter behaviour

Monitoring Active Travel and Modal Shift requires methodical planning and collection of accurate, consistent data. This report also explains how computer vision combined with powerful AI offers a winning solution to tackle issues around the evaluation and assessment of road schemes.
