Of all households in Dunedin, 5,000 don't have access to a motor vehicle.

And there are almost as many with two vehicles as there are with one, making up the vast majority.

On the last census day, almost 30,000 Dunedin residents drove a private car, van or truck to work.

That's about half of all employed residents.

Less than 1,500 took public transport, and even less than that cycled.

Throughout the country it's most common for households to have access to two motor vehicles.

And the proportion of those with three or more vehicles is increasing.
