Download

In the budget proposal for 2016, Swedish National Road and Transport Research Institute (VTI) was tasked with implementing a study on effective and innovative solutions that can enhance people’s willingness and ability to use public transport in rural areas in Sweden. The commission should implement an environmental analysis and describe the present situation. This includes highlighting good examples of efficient and innovative solutions within the public transport area, both national and international. The commission will also consider how conditions differ between various rural areas, as well as women’s and men’s opportunities to travel by public transport. Furthermore, new opportunities for managing open data and digitalisation should be highlighted.

The commission is reported in November 2017. The results are based on four different studies that are documented in four publications. The present final report presents a summary of important conclusions from the commission.
