A sustainable passenger transport system is highly prioritised by Region Skåne and Malmö City. Hence smart and green traffic solutions that increase the use of walk and bike, public transport, and e-mobility are being implemented by Malmö city and Region Skåne, amongst other through Skånetrafiken (PTA).
In order to create a world class public transport system in Malmö, the city will have several Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) lines. The first line started in 2014 and has proven to be a great success. By the end of 2018 electrical buses will be introduced in Malmö, and from 2021 the first electrical BRT-lines are planned to start running.
Excellent bus traffic also needs excellent traffic information with new commuter signs and improved functionality in mobile apps. In a Mobility as a Service (MaaS) perspective, the city is improving bike facilities and green vehicle parking/charging. Welcome to Malmö to experience our smart solutions!
