The purpose of the Public Transport programme is to stimulate the development of an attractive public transport system that can contribute to sustainable growth in various ways.
A well-developed public transport system can promote greater efficiency in the transport system as a whole, particularly in the large municipalities. Improved facilities for commuters can also stimulate regional growth by creating larger labour regions, thus directly producing an altered commuting pattern.
Another purpose of the programme is to stimulate the role of public transport in reducing some of the problems in the transport system that can hinder growth.
VINNOVA, Swedish Agency for Innovation Systems, integrates research and development in technology, transport and working life. VINNOVA's mission is to promote sustainable growth by financing RTD and developing effective innovation systems.
