Walking and cycling share of total trip legs by people age 5 and over in main urban areas.
For survey purposes, a journey from one place to another may be split into trip legs. A "trip leg" is a unit of non-stop travel by a single mode for a single purpose. For example, walking to work with a stop at the shop is two trip legs. Excludes trips under 100 metres, off-road travel and travel on private property (eg farms, malls).
