HOLDNINGER TIL BIL OG KOLLEKTIVTRANSPORT; EN INTERVJUUNDERSOEKELSE BLANT BEFOLKNINGEN OG POLITIKERNE I OSLO

A selection of the population and local politicians in Oslo have been interviewed about their attitudes towards car use and public transport. The two groups agree on positive statements towards travelling by public transport. The majority likes to travel by public transport because it is relaxing. The politicians are more positive to travel by public transport than the population. The main disadvantages about travelling by public transport are the fixed routes and time schedules, and that it is time-consuming. The population is more positive towards the use of cars than the politicians. The freedom to travel where and when you want is the main advantage of the car. The disadvantage is mostly associated with feeling of stress. (A)
