People will choose public transport if the offer is good enough

One in four who live in the districts says it will take an extra hour to get to work, school or study using public transport, according to a NAF survey.

In the districts, there are few who use public transport to work and school, while one in three travel collectively in the big cities. At the same time, 60 per cent of those surveyed in NAF’s national representative survey says that they would like to travel more collectively if the offer was better.

Communication Manager Camilla Ryste of NAF believes that people’s travel needs must increasingly control the politicians’ priorities in transport.

“This shows that when there is good enough public transportation offering, then people will use it. At the same time, we see how important the car is still in everyday life to many. In many places it is completely unrealistic to replace the car,” says Ryste in a press release.
