FROM SIMON:

Here are my suggestions:

1. It is clear that the car was the most popular form of transport throughout the period shown.

(Don't put a comma after 'that'. Also, the phrase 'numbers are dominant' sounded strange)

2. There was an increase in the number of train users.

(I would avoid the phrase 'showed upward trend' - it's easy to use it wrongly)

3. The number of commuters favouring the car or train increased significantly.

4. Around 5 million commuters travelled by car.

5. The figure for train users stood at around 2 million.

(No 's' on 'million'. Read this lesson:
