Congestion in public transport has increased in recent weeks in principle in all regions, according to a compilation from the country’s county administrative boards. Now they demand clear national guidelines to reduce congestion.
Despite the Public Health Agency’s recommendation that it is best to choose modes of transport other than public transport, travel in public transport is now increasing in most regions.
It shows a compilation from the country’s 21 county administrative boards that Ekot has read. The county administrative boards have also submitted a list to the government of proposals for guidelines on how to reduce congestion.
– For example, limit the number who can be on a bus or mark the bus how to sit or just take a seat. The complex thing about it is that it is difficult for a bus driver to get it done, says Marcus Björklund, emergency director at the County Administrative Board of Skåne.
Marcus Björklund believes that although the guidelines may be difficult to implement in practice, they can give a clear signal. Above all, he thinks that more people should avoid unnecessary travel.
– Avoid traveling during rush hour traffic if you do not have to. We have received reports that young people travel to a stop when it is four hundred meters to walk, he says.
