The Oslo Study
How do new technologies such as autonomous driving affect mobility in the Norwegian capital Oslo? On behalf of the local transit provider Ruter AS, the Scandinavian consulting company COWI and the experts from the PTV Group of Karlsruhe have investigated this topic. Their investigation has also shown that well-established local public transport will continue to be important in the future. The addition of MaaS services could make public transport more attractive for today’s drivers, however autonomous technologies alone will not be sufficient to achieve climate goals and improve urban development.
