Smart choices require easy access – making sustainable transport a part of every day life

The entire trip, from door to door is an important issue for Gävle, our region and all of Sweden. The ability to travel comfortably and quickly, yet in an environmentally friendly way is important to travelers. In the Gävle area, this is an especially important issue because many of the inhabitants live in rural areas and/or commute long distances to cities in the region. City buses, commuter parking, bikes on the train, and other transportation solutions are essential to a well functioning weekday.
