Kollektivtrafikens roll för regeringens mål om fossiloberoende fordonsflotta


The Swedish government has an ambition to make its vehicle fleet independent of fossil fuels by 2030. As a platform for a strategy, the government has appointed a committee which is instructed to consider which policy instruments may be used to achieve this target at lowest social costs. Using the domestic acronym, this is the FFF committee. One option for this end is to make public transport attractive to a wider community. In that way, more people would be induced to switch from private cars, thereby reducing the emissions of fossil fuels. VTI has been appointed to make an assessment of this possibility, and the present report is our final report.
