A new research project will study how public transport can become more resilient, inclusive, and integrated. Four countries will do case studies with different focus. In Sweden the researchers will study how micromobility solutions can be used with public transport in an inclusive way. Across...
Today, public transport is characterised by a concentration of infrastructure and resources to fewer but more attractive “transit corridors”, as well as the ongoing effort to strengthen the attractiveness of public transport as a sustainable alternative to the car. However, this has not always...
Knowledge about land development and public transport for large Norwegian cities also works for small
The world is in a process of transformation: global warming, resource scarcity, demographic changes, and urbanisation are uncertainties that also influence the automotive industry and challenge it to respond. The transformation would go much further than safe and sustainable travel. It would...
VTI strives to increase research in the field of rail transport, and currently it has about twenty people working in this area. Together they represent a broad and deep competence base with an interdisciplinary approach. Peter Torstensson, acting Director of Research at VTI and a docent at...
The combination of bicycle and public transport has the potential to reduce car use in regional commuting. To accelerate this development, CYNKA has started a research and innovation project led by VTI. The study has attracted interest from various actors, which is also evident in the large...
Exploratory dynamic modelling of modal choices towards carbon free urban transport in Helsinki, Finland
VTT has investigated the potential of relatively small, exploratory, dynamic models to produce insight for policy-making to facilitate at modal shifts towards carbon free urban transport. Further, the key elements that build such a model have been identified. To offer citizens alternative modal...
Travel by public transport has decreased significantly during the pandemic due to increased remote working, cancelled activities and fewer social gatherings. But it is also a natural consequence of the recommendations to avoid public transport and not to travel during rush hour. “Public...
A monthly travelcard is the most priceworthy choice. Nevertheless, travellers with low income tend to buy single tickets, instead of a monthly travelcard, according to a recent study about travellers in public transport in Sweden. A recent study of travelers in public transport in Sweden show...
