Lund University

Transport and Roads at Lund University has conducted research on local and regional public transport for more than 30 years. The research conducted at Transport and Roads focuses on the road user, transport modes and infrastructure, with a focus on how infrastructure should be adapted to road users’, citizens’ and societal requirements with respect to accessibility, safety, environment and economics. The research is largely empirical with a strong focus on problem-solving and measures, characterised by evaluation and the development of theory and models.
