"– There is an increased awareness of both the company and the individual. I think it is a result of the summer heat and the drawbacks of the heat contributed. People ask themselves what they can do to influence in the right direction, " she says. "
"But it is not just the environment that gets people to choose the train, many also indicate that they work better on the train and they think it is the most convenient option. "

"Will you make to meet demand?"
"– We are expanding departures, at some distances, we increase the traffic any more than the other. Nattågstrafiken we increase, and also on the southern main line, that is to say, the Stockholm-Malmö-Copenhagen and Stockholm-Sundsvall. "
