Table 4 Speed of walking and number of steps taken per minute

From: Combining sensor tracking with a GPS-based mobility survey to better measure physical activity in trips: public transport generates walking

Type of trips or trip stages Speed of walkinga in km/h: median (10th and 90th percentiles) Number of steps taken per minuteb: median (10th and 90th percentiles)
Entirely walked trips 5.0 (2.9, 7.8) 83.5 (7.8, 112.7)
Walking trip stages of public transport trips
 All public transport trips 5.4 (3.2, 8.6) 84.1 (11.0, 115.0)
 Bus/coach trips 5.4 (3.0, 10.1) 81.3 (17.2, 115.1)
 Metro trips 5.3 (3.1, 8.3) 82.1 (11.0, 113.3)
 Suburban train trips 5.3 (3.2, 7.5) 94.8 (32.9, 115.1)
 Tramway trips 5.8 (4.0, 7.8) 89.7 (8.3, 116.0)
  1. Indicators of the intensity of walking are provided for walked trips and for walking stages of public transport trips (RECORD MultiSensor Study)
  2. aIn this calculation, the trips and trip stages were weighted according to the distance walked
  3. bIn this calculation, the trips and trip stages were weighted according to the duration walked
