Daily activities according to age

The travel patterns in Switzerland were analysed based on Microcensus data from 2010 (BFS&ARE 2012) and it turned out that the travel patterns vary greatly between age groups. Besides modal choice also the daily activities are changing. When looking at the daily distances according to trip purpose and age group, education is an important trip purpose for minors, whereas work is the most common trip purpose for persons between 25-44 years. Leisure time travelling is for all age groups and especially for seniors a significant activity.
