Less than half of the passengers who usually travel by bus instead of trains in Eastern Norway during the summer have done so this year.
– The fall was especially big in the week that is behind us, says communications manager Gina Scholz in Vy to Aftenposten.
Since 2009, parts of the local train services around the capital have been closed over the summer, but the chaos that has prevailed at times has disappeared this year. There are also fewer cars compared to last summer on the E18 into Oslo, according to the newspaper.
Scholz in Vy believes that home offices is the explanation for fewer people entering the city.
– People are good at following the rules saying not to travel if it is not necessary, traveling at other times of the day and working from home , she says.
