21 Bus Routes in Stockholm to be Closed Down

In a referral from the traffic administration, it is proposed that 21 bus lines around the Stockholm area be closed down. Transport regional councilor Anton Fendert (MP) refers to a hard-pressed economy, while the opposition’s Kristoffer Tamsons (M) believes that the board should raise SL prices instead.

It is in a referral from the traffic administration that a long list of changes is presented. In plain language, it is about a few improvements and a large number of cuts.

According to the traffic administration, travel with the SL traffic has decreased by a fifth compared to 2019. Elin Lindström explains that the administration has focused on bus lines that run parallel to rail traffic. At the same time, she points out that there may be more cutback proposals.

Opposition regional councilor Kristoffer Tamsons (M) is sharply critical of the proposals. He emphasizes that a significant factor in the context is the governing center coalition’s decision to freeze the SL tariffs.

Anton Fendert turns against Tamson’s reasoning. He says that an increase of approximately SEK 400 for the SL card would be necessary. Kristoffer Tamsons says that he has already noticed that travelers are gathering to protest against the proposals.
