Description:

In conjunction with efforts to encourage the use of natural gas or LPG buses, it was been decided to improve the quality of local mass transport as well to lower fares. The subsidy allocated to public transport (excluding large infrastructure investments) was approximately DKK 4.4 billion in 1997. About the same amount was expected for 1998. Subsidies for public transport were increased in September 1997 in order to reduce prices by 10%. After preliminary studies, this seems to have been successful.
