Spårfaktorn på spåret: förutsättningar för spårväg i svenska städer i ett internationellt perspektiv: en förstudie

Thomas Johansson

The objective of this pilot study is to describe and analyse conditions and experiences/evaluations of investment in tramway systems in urban settings. The study is based on material from six different development projects.

The results presented in this report may be used to improve the knowledge base for planning, design and operation of tramway systems, and as part of the discussion on identified development needs to be addressed if the goal is significantly to increase the market share of public transport.

Six case studies have been conducted in the study. In Sweden, the tramway extensions in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Norrköping are studied. Outside Sweden, extension projects in Paris, Heidelberg and Zurich have been used as case studies. Perhaps the biggest difference between cities in Sweden and the three other cities in the study is the ability to seek and obtain national or state co-financing of project costs for both rail infrastructure and rolling stock.
