Commuters are deserting public transport, indicates new research from online parking platform YourParkingSpace.co.uk .
Analysis of its latest booking data which advertises available parking spaces at train stations and in city centre locations near to offices and work places reveals a clear drop for the former in favour of the latter.
Indeed, a comparison of a variety of station car parks compared to city centre car parks, show that bookings at train stations via the online parking platform are down 46 per cent while in city centres they are up 19 per cent.
Both these figures are for bookings in September compared to pre-lockdown in February.
The survey of 3,000 people also discovered that four-in-ten people were more likely to drive.
In fact, other independent research has highlighted that road congestion is now higher in certain areas than it was last year while there has also been millions fewer train journeys.
