We also compare Lunds ambitions with recommendations from the EU and other national public authorities. This is done by exploring LundaMaTs II, Lund municipality's strategic document for making the transportation system sustainable. Included in LundaMaTs II is the ambition for more cyclists and less motorized... (More)
This study explores Lund municipality’s ambitions for increasing the share of cyclists.

We also compare Lunds ambitions with recommendations from the EU and other national public authorities. This is done by exploring LundaMaTs II, Lund municipality's strategic document for making the transportation system sustainable. Included in LundaMaTs II is the ambition for more cyclists and less motorized traffic by bicycle friendly planning. This study also tries to explain the strongest and most common arguments for why the city and its population benefits from an increasing number of cyclists. (Less)
