The Oslo Region has a high population growth rate, about 15 percent, in the last decade. Housing, employment and transport has grown correspondingly. Within the region, growth, in absolute terms, has been strongest in the centre, while in relative terms, the strongest growth has been in a band about 45 minutes travel from Oslo city centre. Some municipalities has experienced growth rates of more than 30 percent. The report also observes that several of the peripheral cities has strengthened their position, in terms of employment, and increased commuting from their surrounding countryside. The main mode of transport in the region is private cars, with the exception of Oslo city centre, where public transport now is the dominant mode. Also commuting trips destined for Oslo city centre has a high public transport share. This pattern has remained for the studied decade 2004-2013.
