Can the balance left on Jojo Discount Card be reimbursed?

If yes, how and where?

I see it could be used for Oresud train from Malmö to Copenhagen. Could it also be used in the oposite direction?

One is supposed to be able to buy it on Copenhagen airport. Any more specific info on the locations?

Thanx in advance for answers.

Is the citytunneln designed so that it is possible to create a new station between Hyllie station and Triangeln station in the future if needed?

Some pictures of the new bus (superbus) VanHool that (which) will serve the most trafficked bus lines (MalmöExpress):

This is one step forward prior developing a regional light-rail system which may connect the most populous cities in Skåne by 2020.

Cross-Øresund rail network proposed
30 Jun 2014



EUROPE: Proposals to extend the København metro to Malmö and develop an integrated regional rail network form an integral part of the Øresund 2070 vision unveiled during the Øresundshuset regional conference at Almedalen on June 30.

According to the President of Skanska Sweden Pierre Olofsson and his counterpart from the technical consultancy Sweco, Åsa Bergman, ‘the Øresund region is a growth engine, not only for Sweden and Denmark but for the whole Northern Europe’. Following an analysis of the region's challenges up to 2070, the two companies have prepared ‘a series of concrete proposals’ for investment to maintain and develop the region’s competitive position.

With the region’s population expected to grow by a million inhabitants over the next half century, Skanska and Sweco say this will place ‘higher demands on the transport system’, requiring investment in transport and housing plus ‘increased integration across the Strait’ to create conditions for growth and employment. To optimise the relationship between transport and housing, they envisage that much of the urban development should be concentrated in a ‘densified’ København – Malmö – Lund – Helsingborg corridor.

Skanska and Sweco suggest that investment should be focused on public transport and cycling, to reduce the need for car use, calling for more fixed links across the Øresund and the development of a regional rail hub at København Airport. Road and rail tunnels of 15 km and [email protected];km respectively are planned between Helsingborg and Helsingør, carrying both passenger and freight services. These could be built by 2025 under a 30-year PPP concession, at an estimated cost of SKr25bn. The tunnel could carry an orbital rail link connecting the current ‘Lille Nord’ route from Hillerød to Helsingør with Helsingborg, Hässleholm and Åhus.

Further south, Skanska and Sweco recommend an extension of the København metro network from Kastrup to Malmö, and greater integration of regional rail services to offer direct links between suburbs in both countries. Tram routes would be created in København, Helsingbørg, Lund and Malmö by around 2030.

A separate fixed link would carry high speed trains linking Sweden and Norway with mainland Europe, while the current Øresund link would be expanded to accomodate bicycles, connected to a 300 km network of ‘super bike paths’. A multi-level node at København Airport would provide connections between international air services, high speed and regional trains and the metro

This was proposed a long time ago. I am not sure how realistic a lot of it is though.

The branch to Malmō sure seems like the least realistic one - still the municipalities of CPH and Malmō has received EU funding to investigate it further. As is stands right now, they want to do yet another combined tunnel and bridge.

As for the rest of the projects - only the M6/M7-lines are proposed - the rest is under construction, although the North Harbour loop won't be built at once.

I don't know if I prefer a luxury branch to Malmō or the much needed M6 to release pressure on some of the busiest bus lines in CPH. But 15 minutes travel time would really tie the cities together and make Malmō a real district of CPH (and vice versa).

Ah, I was more referring to the Malmö side. Not sure whether the light rail has actually been given the go ahead yet.

They really should build a light rail line or urban streetcar line here. Are there any actual plans for this?

Yes, as you can see in the post above. The "super-buses" are just an short-term solution pending founding for a proper light-rail system.
