Current developments and projects :
The Danish government has established a commission to look into reducing congestion and improving environment. The commission will have to come up with recommendations by mid 2013, which is expected to have a significant positive impact on public transport services.
Main focus in Movias strategic plan is to increase ridership, improve customer satisfaction and reduce environmental impact. Currently plans are being developed to increase travel speed on trunk bus lines and the first BRT system is expected to be in operation by 2014. Traffic information is the most important preference for customers and Movia is working on a strategy to go from analog to entirely digital traffic information.
An electronic ticketing system has been introduced in Movia and is now gradually being rolled out to cover the entire country.
In Copenhagen, plans are drawn for introducing the first light rail line, expected to open in 2020. Furthermore the construction of the City ring metro extension has begun and expected to open in 2018.
