In line with Ruter’s vision of zero killed and seriously injured in traffic, this report looks at how Ruter work with traffic safety today, with the aim of identifying potential areas for improvement. Results from focus groups with managers and staff in Ruter, and interviews with representatives for Ruter’s operators and collaborators, imply that Ruter’s work with traffic safety should be made systematic to a greater degree than is the case today. This would increase (i) the visibility of choices taken between traffic safety and other valued societal goals, and (ii) understanding of how to achieve Vision Zero in practice. Ruter er well placed to see the whole mobility system, which they are a central part of, and to analyse how different components interact and influence traffic safety. Ruter influence the operator’s work with traffic safety, and are a “leading star” for passengers who want to report in incidents. Ruter have, therefore, an important role in achievement of Vision Zero.
