The bar graph illustrates the number of trips made by children in a particular country in 1990 and 2010 using different modes of transport.

This bar graph illustrates the number of trips to and from school per year, by children employing various transportation means in one specific geographical location during the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st

Overall, the usage of cars increased during the studied period of time. In contrast to all the other forms of transport that decreased in different manners.

In 1990, children made around four million trips by car. This number rose dramatically in the next 20 years and reached more than 12 million trips per year.

However, the situation is totally opposite for walking. Children completed their trips to and from school by foot 12 million times in 1990. This figure declined significantly in the succeeding 20 years where it reached precisely six million trips. Similarly, the usage of bicycles, buses, a combination of buses and walking declined and reached two million, five million and three million respectively in 2010.
