This is a detailed study of the urban transport characteristics of the Stockholm, Malmö, Göteborg, Linköping and Helsingborg urban regions in southern Sweden, comparing them to a large sample of global cities. While density is critical in determining mobility patterns and how much public transport, walking and cycling are used, Swedish cities maintain healthy levels of these sustainable modes but moderate levels of car use, with less than half the density of other European cities. The research explores these and other patterns and provides clarity on the urban transport strengths and weaknesses of Swedish cities and some key policy directions to improve them.
