Modal split of passenger and goods transport
It would be great to have some international data on the modal split of passenger and goods transportation.
Passenger: %Car, %Rail, %Bus, %Walk, %Bike, %Air etc
Goods: %Rail, %Air, %Road, %Ship etc.
Thank you for your suggestion. The following indicators on passenger and goods transportation are available via the World Development Indicators database:
Air transport, freight (million ton-km)
Air transport, passengers carried
Air transport, registered carrier departures worldwide
Railways, goods transported (million ton-km)
Railways, passengers carried (million passenger-km)
Container port traffic (TEU: 20 foot equivalent units)
For information on road transportation, you can contact the International Road Federation.
We will be exploring including additional indicators in the future.

I agree, and I would like to add: such information must concentrate on the main cities. It should not contain any conditional on the extensiveness of the network such as the per km.
