In order to reduce car commuting, it is important that the public transport service is efficient and attractive. TØI has calculated the generalized journey time (GJT) on work travel with car, public transport and bicycle in Norwegian cities. The results show that the public transport service is mostly oriented towards travel to the city centers. Compared to car use, the public transport service is quite unattractive for many commuters. We have also found that an attractive public transport service is characterized by short travel time, few interchanges and high frequencies.
