Energy Intensity of Urban and Intercity Passenger Modes
Here are some more charts showing the energy intensity of various travel modes. The data comes from
Gagnon, Luc. Comparaison des options énergétiques: Options de transport. Hydro-Quebec. 2008.
I built these charts using the data in Gagnon's paper. (Actually, he had some charts in there as well; they were really good and look a lot like these. But they were in French, plus they were in PDF format, which often gives weird results when you swipe an image for, say, a PowerPoint presentation for a class you're teaching.)
If you want to make a point on energy and transport options to an English-speaking audience, feel free to use mine.
