Mapping of six municipalities planning of public transport in new residential areas within Jönköping County (English)
Abstract [en]

Purpose: Today we can see a steady increase in population, which calls on the municipalities to plan new residential areas and develop the old ones. This in turn leads to pressure on public transport with a focus on environmental issues and a desire for a different way of transport than by car becomes more and more relevant. The purpose is to give an overview and to understand the planning of public transportation today for six municipalities in Jönköping County.

Method: The report has been conducted using qualitative studies in the form of interviews and literature studies. Document studies have also been used and have been downloaded from the municipalities' websites. Findings: When planning new residential areas, the municipalities try to bring public transport into account. In some municipalities, public transport has a more significant part in planning. If the municipality fail to achieve the aims of public transport planning, it will mainly result in negative environmental impacts. For the municipality to develop and make sure that the number of inhabitants increases, public transport should be an important part of the planning. When it comes to the cooperation between Jönköpings Länstrafik and the municipalities, they focus on public transport and that It will cover the need for travel in the municipalities. It is important that you already in the early stages of planning make sure that there is room for the public transport that is required.

Implications: Public transport must continue to be a major part of planning and focus should be on realizing what is planned for public transport. Although the municipalities are planning public transport, there are residential areas that could have a significantly better access to public transport.

Limitations: As time was not enough for a study covering all 13 municipalities in Jönköping County, it was decided to focus only on six municipalities with different circumstances and varying sizes.
