Mode of transport might be crucial for exposure to air pollution. This literature review has focused on levels of travel exposure in Norway. It is found that the subway likely have high concentration levels of particulate matter while busses have important levels of self-pollution. Particle concentrations inside vehicles are dependent on efficient filtering of air whereas bikers and pedestrians are experiencing large rapid variations in their exposure with high peaks due to exhaust plumes. No literature was found on studies in Norway and international results on travel related exposure was not found relevant enough to give quantitative estimates. However, knowledge about important factors for the observed concentration levels in different transport modes is useful to facilitate for reduced exposure during travel.
