Key Transport figures 2018
In Key Transport Figures 2018, the KiM Netherlands Institute for Transport Policy Analysis presents a comprehensive summary of the key developments in transport in the Netherlands. The figures pertain to the years 2005-2017 and supplement the key series of annual figures presented in the more comprehensive Mobility Report 2017.Key Transport Figures 2018 also provides an updated 'Outlook', offering the latest insights into the developments expected to occur in the medium-term. The table below shows all figures in the field of passenger mobility, freight transport, accessibility, traffic safety and the environment.
A few remarks
- The Appendix to Key Figures Mobility 2018 describes the methodologies and data series used.
The Key Transport Figures in the table pertain to the territory of the Netherlands, with the exception of the air transport passenger kilometres.
- Italics: provisional figures.

2 Because this pertains to a sample, the annual transport figures contain a statistical uncertainty, which has steadily increased over the past 15 years as the (MON/OViN) data collection’s sample size has decreased. The figures indicate trends; they are not hard numbers from year to year. KiM has redetermined the developments and trends in transport based on the latest figures (including a revision of the OViN files from 2010 to 2012). The results differ from other transport data, such as that published by Statistics Netherlands at http://cbs.statline.nl. For more information about the nature and extent of these differences, please refer to the web appendix: Key Transport Figures 2018, Passenger Transport: Research of Trips in the Netherlands data (in Dutch language). Mobiliteitsbeeld 2017, ‘Data en methodieken: ‘Onderzoek Verplaatsingen in Nederland’.
3 Because the data sources differ, the total figure for 'public transport' is not equal to the sum of the individual figures for 'train' and 'bus, tram, metro'. To ascertain the modal split for total mobility, KiM uses MON/OViN, the only source that measures uniformly across all transport modes and is subsequently countable up to 100. KiM uses other data sources for analyses within the public transport market, as they are more accurate for this purpose.
