Thomas Johansson

The new Master Plan for the City of Linköping and the included Transport Strategy discuss a high quality public transport network in the city, the so-called LinkLink. High quality public transport is seen as an important part of the city and municipal development in general with respect to land development, transportation and land use. The study "Railbound public transport in Linköping" is based on the current planned development of public transport Linköping. The aim is to improve knowledge and decision support for the municipality's continued planning work where tramways have arised as an future option.

The study is based on European best practice in public transport, with focus on tramways, and taking into account the conditions that apply to light rail implementation in Sweden, and on the current planning situation in Linköping relevant to city public transport. The report describes a stepwise process model that can also function as a check-list for the municipality. The process model is based on research of modern tramway system in Sweden and internationally, and on interviews with officials and politicians in the Swedish towns and regions where the expansion of existing or new tramway systems are currently discussed.

The process model is divided into successive steps to be taken in order to implement a future tramway system. The realisation of the process model´s different steps also means that the knowledge and decision data are sufficient for the municipality to decide on the future direction and if / when the next step in the implementation process should be taken.
