An internet based survey on commuting are carried out among employees at Siemens, Linderud. As many as 68 percent commute by car, 10 percent use the bike and the rest go by public transport. The employees live in a large geographical area, so using public transport often imply changing bus or train, which increases travel time. Nearly half of the employees say that the reason for using the car is that the public transport supply is too poor. Access by bus or metro to the company can be better with an increased quality on pathways from the Metro-station and the train station and relocation of a bus stop. Nearly 40 percent of those commuting by car could be interested in using the public transport more if the supply would be better. If this is realized, the emission of CO2 would be recuded with 34 percent.
