The graph shows the different modes of transport used to travel to and from work in one European city in 1960, 1980 and 2000. Write a report for a university lecturer describing the information below. You should write at least 150 words. You should not spend more than 20 minutes on this task.
The bar chart describes three ways that citizens of a European city may use to go to work. The data refers to 1960, 1980 and 2000.
it is clear thatthe main trend changed a lot between those years, in ,fact preferences values fluctuated drastically, especially auto and walk modes. It can be inferred from the graph that the bus method values did not change significantly between those ages,
hencethey moved from about 25 in 1980 to a little bit more of 15 in 2000. Oppositely, foot preferences had an important decrease during those periods,
henceits numbers were 35 in 1960 and reduced to 10 in 2000.
Moreover, The bike cluster followed the same trend, because it started with 25 points in 1960 and ended with more than 5 in the
On the other hand, the car sector had an explosion and in 2000 it gained the highest score. In 1980 the preferences were quite similar because all the numbers fluctuated between 25 for the bus category and 15 for the foot one. 2000 and 1960 were completely different. In 1960 "car" had the lowest score, which was around 5. The most used option was the foot, with a score equal to 35 points. During the
lastyear, the less used option was the bike and the most used one was the car, with points around 5 and 35 respectively.
Furthermore, there is not a year with equal transport method scores and, in the same way, there is not a mode used with the same frequency during years.
