What do we see?
In the past decade we see that the numbers of cars in Flanders increased by 14%, with the total now at 3.5 million registered cars. The same trend can be seen in terms of the number of cars per household.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic seems to have reversed this trend as we see a slight decrease for the number of cars per household.
What’s the aim?
In a circular economic model, the level of mobility should remain the same but with lower resource consumption. In order to achieve that, the number of cars per household should be minimised while other methods of transport, like public transport and cycling, are maximised.
