Transport companies say that the industry is losing ground, but they are still on the roads.
That’s according to the latest results from the Transport Industry Association, which released its latest survey today.
The survey found that a total of 13.9 percent of respondents are looking at moving away from their current location and looking for a new one, with the vast majority of the move being to more remote locations.
That trend is expected to continue, with a total 9.7 percent of those surveyed planning to move away from current locations by 2021, according to Transit Industry Association chief executive David Hickey.
The majority of those respondents are expected to do so by 2022, with another 5.9% moving to more rural areas and 1.3% to cities.
Transport for London (TfL), which represents the public sector, is expected in the next five years to have a 25.3 percent share of the UK market, with London, Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool all expected to see their share fall by a third, according the TfL.
London Mayor Boris Johnson is the only major city to have the highest proportion of people saying they are moving away, with just under half of respondents saying they were planning to leave the capital.
Hickey said he expects the numbers to continue to fall as a result of a new law which allows the City of London to raise fares for the first time in 20 years.
Transportation companies have been lobbying for changes to the rules for years, with Transport for London now offering a 30 percent discount for passengers travelling by car, with plans to roll out the discount further.
A spokesman for TfI told the Guardian that a number of factors contributed to the trend of people wanting to move to cities, including the cost of living and the availability of private transport options.
Transit companies such as Uber, AirBnB and Airbnb have also been accused of encouraging people to leave their current locations.
The TfLA chief executive said that it was important that passengers could use public transport, and not be trapped in a rental situation where they had to pay their rent on a monthly basis.
“People want to live somewhere where they can get around, so they want to find the cheapest and most convenient option to get to their destination,” said Hickey, who added that the public transport industry needed to provide a more flexible and flexible supply of transport to ensure that its services were more widely available.
“It’s about giving people options to get where they want and at the best prices.”
The TafL survey comes after a series of other recent surveys that found a sharp rise in the number of people looking to leave cities.
Last year, more than 10 percent of the population said they were considering moving, up from 8.5 percent in 2013.
A survey from ComRes, which is part of the polling firm Ipsos MORI, also found that the majority of respondents had considered moving, with more than two thirds saying they would be willing to do it if they could.
“This is a new trend that’s been happening for a while, which I think is indicative of the changing face of people,” said Ipsos research director Matthew Walker.
“There are people who feel the city is a little too big, and a little less expensive than they were used to living in.”
