A study by confused.com analysed global countries on factors such as adequate access to public transport and transport prices to reveal the world’s most car-dependent countries.

Here are the world’s most car-dependent countries:

Rank Country Efficiency of public transport services /7 Adequate access to public transport /7 Transport price index (100 = world average) Average taxi fare (20 mins) Overall score /10
1 New Zealand 3.7 4.5 139.05 $23.54 8.48
2 Greece 4.0 5.2 120.91 $10.08 7.62
3 Argentina 3.8 4.5 101.83 $8.36 7.36
4 Canada 5.0 5.1 125.55 $16.71 7.14
5 Turkey 4.5 5.0 95.17 $4.11 6.80
6 Australia 4.7 5.3 132.55 $19.50 6.58
7 Portugal 4.7 5.3 123.44 $9.26 6.15
8 United States 5.6 5.7 110.32 $18.17 5.89
9 Italy 4.3 4.6 135.37 $17.45 5.84
10 Belgium 4.6 5.1 141.05 $26.93 5.67

The country on this list that relies the most on cars to get around is New Zealand, with a score of 8.48 out of 10. The nation is the most reliant on cars for 2 separate factors: both its efficiency and access to public transport. This may be because transport funding in New Zealand is heavily skewed towards road projects rather than public transport.

Further Study Insights:

  • The country with the most expensive public transport is Denmark.
  • Taxis are most expensive in Switzerland, at a price of $47.91 for a 20-minute journey.
  • Canada has the least used rail transport, with 45 passengers per capita.
