Stavanger offers free use of public transport
The municipality of Stavanger is the first city in Norway to offer free public transport. From 01 July 2023, passengers will be able to take the bus, boat or train on local transport for free.
In this way, the city hopes to encourage more people to switch to public transport or cycling in their daily lives. The goal is that at least 70 per cent of the previous car trips in the city will be newly made on foot, by bicycle or by public transport.
Kolombus operates public transport in the Stavanger region, and the municipality will newly pay for the company's planned passenger revenue.
It is currently unclear whether the service will be reserved for residents only.
