Hi Simon,

Here is my guess.
Two main trends observed from the given table:
+ the total travelling distance increased over the period.
+ cars were the most used mode of transport in both years.

It is clear from the table that the total distance of a person travelled rose significantly over a 15-year period. Cars were responsible for the longest distance travelled in both 1985 and 2000.

Overall, the average distance travelled by an Englishman increased from 4,740 miles in 1985 to 6,475 miles in 2000. In both years, the most popular way of travelling was by car.

Avoid putting exact numbers in the overview. The overview is for the general trends, not the specific information (we call specific numbers 'key features').

It is clear that car is by far the most popular mode of transport over the 15-year period. IT is also noticeable that figure for overall commuters increased in 2000, the popularity of travelling by taxi in English people has also increased significantly in 2000 compared to 1985.

It is obvious that most people relied on cars as their main transportation for travelling in the year 1985 and 2000. We can also find that walking, bicycle and local bus were the three categories that became less popular among residents in England over the year.

Overall, the average distance traveled rose by over a third, with car travel accounting for the lion's share in both years. The distance traveled on local buses, which made up less than a tenth of the total in 1985, shrank further in both raw and percentage terms.

Okay

thanks

Overall,it is clear that people were more active in 2000 compared to 1985.It can be seen that car mode transport was the most used type ,while taxi and bicycle were the less prefered mode of travel

Main trends in the table above are
1. All modes of transportation rose significantly over the 15-years period
2. Car become the most popular choose in terms of people’s travelled

It is clear that the total avarage travel distance of English person increased significantly over the period. While a car was the most popular transport method in both years, the taxi was the least.

The picture may not be clear, do you have the original links

It is clear that car is by far the most popular mode of transport over the 15-year period. It is also noticeable that the figure for overall commuters increased in 2000, as well as the popularity of travelling by taxi in English people has also increased significantly in 2000 compared to 1985.

It is clear that majority of the distance travelled by an average person was on car. Also,there was a significant increase in the use of car for travelling over the five year period.

1st BP...modes of travel COVERing MORE DISTANCE
car, local bus, train, waliking

2nd BP...vehicles covering less distance...
long distance bus, bicycle and taxi

1st bp
car most popular vehicle figures in 1985 and 2000, an increase of...distance
similarly..train (2nd most used.. increase by..
by contrast...
walking, slight decrease while local bus significant decrease but still more prefered than walking

2nd bp
bicycle../relatively stable
long distance bus..inc while taxi..inc..tripled and was used as much as bicycle in 2000..around 40

overall, cars were by far the most commonly used means of transportation in both years, whereas taxis were the least favored.Also, there was a general increase in use of all modes of travel over the 15-year period except walking, cycling and taking the local bus, which rather saw a decline.

Owerall, it can be observed increasing tendency in modes of travel such as car, taxi and long distance buses. And using other types of traveling, namely bicycle and buses around the area decreased over the given years

"It can be observed" is usually followed by "that".

"increasing tendency": (with a few exceptions) passive verbs do not take an object in English, so what is this? It cannot be the subject as we already have "it" as the subject.

Do not confuse "tendency" with "trend".

Overall, it can be observed that modes of travel such as car,taxi and long distance buses increased and using other types of traveling, namely bicycle and buses around the area decreased over the given years. Thank you!

Overall, it can be seen that there was a growing tendency in the numbers of mile of almost transportation over a period of 15 years. Cars were the most used mode of traveling in both years
