Here’s what I found:


  • 🚗 Car usage: Dominates with 94% of Belgians using cars.

  • 🚇 Public transport: Utilized by 67% of the population.

  • 🚴‍♂️ Bikes: Used by 57% of Belgians, with non-electric bikes still preferred (42% vs 26%).

  • 🚅 Trains: Most used public transport, but daily public transport usage remains limited.

  • 🚶 Short distances: Cars are the primary mode of transport for distances over 2 km.

  • 🏞️ Journey purposes: 1/3 for leisure, 1/4 for groceries, and 1/5 for commutes.

  • 💸 Spending on mobility: Belgian families spend an average of €4328 annually on mobility.

  • 📈 Company cars: Increasing steadily, with around 600,000 in 2023. EV and PHEV usage is following a classic hockey stick growth pattern.

  • 🌍 Commune statistics:
