Zürich: Peak car is a reality

filed on: 10.06.2015 (10th Jun 2015)

cars and trams on winterthurerstrasse in zurich It is sometimes speculated on pro-public transport blogs that the world is approaching or maybe even at peak-car (analgously to peak oil, the point at which fewer new owners are chosing to own a car than old owners giving them up). For Zürich this is now confirmed. For every 1000 inhabitants, there were 359 cars in 2013, down from 457 in 2007. VBZ ridership has risen from 293 million in 2005 to 326 million in 2014.
