Last year, a new bus route with flexible nattstopp tested between Bromma and Stenhamra. It never took place because the buses had not had the opportunity to stay on the road where the line would go. A year later, made a new attempt on a different route.
Nattbusslinjen 504Y will go between Hallonbergen and Ursvik in Sundbyberg. In the trial, passengers will be able to choose where the bus should stop, no matter where the stops are.
– It is above all a question of security. We have basically a safe public transport, but many people feel insecure when they move out at night to and from public transport. To increase the security is therefore a priority issue, " says Aleksander Krajisnik, press contact at SL.
During the trip, there will be a kundvärd on the bus that the passengers can talk with about where they want to get off. Customer satisfaction will in turn talk with the driver and bring the wish on. It is then up to the driver to stop where there is opportunity.
the trial starts on Thursday 2 may and will run until 1 June of this year. Thereafter, it shall be investigated if the bus route should become permanent.
