Intervju


“So far there is no clear evidence that new technology makes DRT more efficient from an economic perspective. On the other hand, travelers who use these new systems being tested, are generally very satisfied”, says Fredrik Pettersson-Löfstedt.

Fredrik has, among other things, conducted field work in Sydney to study new technical solutions on-site.

“We lived with young children in Sydney, without access to a car of our own. We found however, that using the on-demand trials was not possibly for us since children under four are not allowed on these buses”, says Fredrik.

“Information that takes into account the traveler's individual context and needs can increase the attractiveness of public transport and contribute to more people choosing public transport”, says Åse Jevinger.

In order to be able to provide travelers with individually adapted information, there is a need to, among other things, identify which vehicle the passenger is currently on and what alternative public transport solutions are available from upcoming stops.

Konferens


Representatives from municipalities and governments on regional and national level from all five Nordic countries were gathered in Lund to discuss similarities and differences between policy instruments in the Nordic countries.
