Belfast is the pits if you don't own a car

Belfast is among the hardest cities in Europe to get around without a car, a major new report has found.

The city has been ranked second-to-last in a 13-strong table compiled by the Campaign for Better Transport (CBT).

The cities were judged on 16 categories, including access to public transport, public attitudes to car use and congestion levels.

London (in eighth place), Cardiff (ninth), Dublin (10th) Edinburgh (11th) and Belfast (12th) were in the bottom half.

Stockholm was judged to be the best European city to get around without a car, followed by Helsinki, Prague, Paris and Berlin. Only Rome, in 13th and last place, was less “green” and public transport-friendly than the British Isles' main cities.
