The number of people coming into the city by private car has dropped from almost 65,000 in 2016 to 61,694 in 2017.

This means that the mode share for cars has dropped to under 30% for the first time.

It is now 29.2%, compared to 40% as recently as 2010.

Some 70% of all inbound trips were made by a sustainable mode which includes cycling, walking, taxi and other public transport.
