Public Transport

Public Transport

Due to the population growth in cities, there is an increasing demand for clean and environmentally friendly transportation options. According to the Norwegian National Transport Plan 2014–2023, any growth in passenger traffic in urban areas must be conducted with climate neutral transportation modes.

SINTEF contributes to this development through our research on the motivation for various travel behaviours, such as use of public transportation, sidewalks, and bicycle lanes. In addition, we are developing and utilizing new and innovative technology and design to improve information flow and predictability for both users and providers of public transportation.
