For locals with a transportation pass it's free.

I've taken it a couple times recently to and from the airport. There has been lots of room from the airport to Lagunen, but very full from there into the city.

Some tourists on a budget will take it to save money, but having lots of luggage will be a hassle when busy. Also, Bybanen doesn't serve tourist staying at the hotels around Bryggen.

If you arrive in a city and you don't know anything it's natural to just get on the train. When i was working in Rygge airport there were many tourists using the train to get to Oslo even tough the shuttle was usually quicker (for Oslo S).

There aren't that many hotels in Bryggen. This being said, absolutely, Bryggen and Sandviken need light rail extended there.

Bergen city council have decided that they want the future Åsane light rail line to go in a tunnel through Sandviken. This route would also include a ungerground station at the NLA college. Their preferred route is marked with 5Ba on this map, but 5Bb (which also includes the tunneland the underground station) will also be examined further. This will become Bergens second underground light rail station.

Here is a better picture of the route chosen. The underground station will be placed at the spot marked "NLA". The two diverting lines at "Sandviken Brygge" represent the 5Ba and the 5Bb alternatives. 5Ba is the route located closest to the coast. There will be another underground station here f they decide to go with route 5Bb.



Likely approximately location of the "NLA" station. This is an old drawing from earlier in the plan process so it will likely be subject to some later changes.

In other news the preparation work for the construction of the Fyllingsdalen line have come further. They are now in the process of demolishing the old building in Møllendalsveien 69 which will make way for the Møllendal stop. Proper construction is expected to start in February next year.

Now:

Which will make way for this:

When did they change the vehicles livery from the old yellow to the current red and white scheme? Was it when they re-branded the system from Tilde to SKYSS?

I don't know the exact year, but it happened after the first building step of the light rail had been opened as the color scheme was first introduced on the light rail.

Two tables showing usage of public transportation in the Bergen area in recent years.

Translation of the relevant parts:
1. line: Bus usage inside Bergen municipality.
2.: Bus usage in the greater Bergen area.
3.: Bybane/light rail usage.
4.(highlighted in light blue): Total public transportation usage inside the greater Bergen area.




Bergen municipality have seen a 62% rise in public transportation usage since 2010:
