More people are using public transport in the southern Swedish region of Scania, reports News Øresund.

According to figures from the Public Transport Barometer, the proportion of Swedes using public transport in Scania increased from 26 percent in 2014 to 28 percent in 2015, which places the region in second place in a national comparison.

Only Stockholm, where public transport accounted for 49 percent of all city travel, exceeded the southern region of Sweden.


Although most Scanians (79 percent) say they are satisfied or very satisfied with their public transport, the region ranks below the national average of 81 percent.

Skånetrafik explains this may be due to frequent traffic delays.
