Research

K2 is Sweden's national centre for research and education on public transport. This is where academia, the public sector and industry meet to discuss and develop the role of public transport in Sweden.

We research how public transport can contribute to attractive and sustainable metropolitan areas for the future. K2 is a multidisciplinary research environment and our research is conducted in close collaboration with public transport operators. The research is based on five areas addressing key challenges for public transport in Sweden and elsewhere.
