The City of Antwerp carries out several surveys to measure travel behaviour. The resident survey showed that the use of cars for commuter travel dropped by 15.6% between 2010 and 2020 (from 51% to 35.4%). Meanwhile, bicycle use has risen by 8.8% (from 21.1% to 29.9%). The use of public transport saw a drop of 18.6% to 9.1%. In 2020, 21.4% of Antwerp residents did not make regular journeys to work. A sharp rise of 16.4% compared to 2010.

Looking at the travel behaviour of residents in their free time, the bicycle has beaten the car in recent years, with 40.8% cyclists compared to 28.8% car drivers in 2020. When it comes to residents' home-school traffic, the figures remained more stable between 2010 and 2019, with a preference for sustainable solutions: 36.8% bicycle use, 22.7% public transport and 10.7% car use in the past year. The influence of coronavirus was unmistakable here too in 2020, with 22.4% pupils learning at home.

Distance versus method of transport

In 2020, 45% of people employed in Antwerp took the car to work, located less than 7.5 km away. Only 38% of Antwerp's residents used the car to commute less than 7.5 km. Meanwhile, more employees chose the bike: not only for journeys less than 5 km, but also for longer distances.
