I like very much how the combined part of the lines goes above the water and then, after Gamla Stan station goes underground, down the water. Very technically advanced.

P.S. What's the difference between Tvarbanan, Pendeltag and Roslagsbanan?

Tvärbanan = modern light rail line that links many different metro lines.

Pendeltåg = Higher frequency commuter train using full-sized mainline trains designated X60 stock.

Roslagsbanan = One of the oldest electrified, narrow gauge railways in Europe. 891mm gauge if I remember correctly.

Some of my most recent videos from Stockholm.

First up, we have trams on Hamngatan.






Next up, a ride from Kungsträdgården to Djurgården on the tram.







A very long ride on Bus Number 4 - one of the blue bus lines ("See bus, think tram") that run through the city centre. This takes us from Värtavägen to Sankt Eriksplan.







A view of Sankt Eriksplan, a key transport hub in the west of Stockholm city centre on Norrmalm.







A ride on Bus Number 3 - another Blue frequent bus from Sankt Eriksplan to Karolinska Institutet.

MTR Stockholm statistics

MTR Stockholm released the yearly report. Among the other things, the metro ridership statistical data is presented. According to the report, there were 330 million metro journeys executed during last year (an increase by 1 million since 2013). The daily ridership, on average, was 1.2 million passengers.
The punctuality of the system was 96%. Thanks to MTR the punctuality of the 60+ year old Stockholm metro system is record high nowadays.
During the latest five years, the market share of MTR in the railway sector of Sweden increased by 10%.

A few public transport videos from Stockholm again.

First, showcasing the Roslagsbanan at Mörby Station.






A ride on the Roslagsbanan from Mörby Station to Universitetet.







Tunnelbana at Danderyds Sjukhus and the Bus Terminal.







Bus 178 from Danderyds Sjukhus to Helenelund. I apologise for the poor quality due to my location in the bus, but still, it gives an impression of how roady Stockholm can be outside of the city centre - lots of duel carriageways and motorways.








Arrival and departure of the metro at Kista station (as well as a view of the bus depot).

Autonomous platform screen doors on Citybanan
02 May 2015



SWEDEN: The two new underground stations being built as part of Stockholm’s Citybanan project are to be equipped with Gilgen Door Systems platform screen doors with ClearSy’s Coppilot autonomous control system.

This uses sensors installed on the platform rather than equipment on the train, which ClearSy says is ideal for Stockholm where only two stations will have screen doors and existing rolling stock will be used

It is interesting that while SL is testing three different types/suppliers of PSDs för Tunnelbanan it is also getting PSDs built into Citybanan (by Trafikverket who are building it even if only SL trains will use it).
Different trains and brand new stations vs old stations might explain it all tho.

Buses 1-49 do have changes. Bus 40 no longer exists for example, there might be others too as this is what SL has to say about the changes.

There are also perhaps some dubious changes to the routes. For example, bus 40 that they are cutting means that the entire district of Ekhagen no longer has any public transport access. When they moved the Roslagsbanan train station from Frescati to Universitetet, Ekhagen lost nearby rail access (now they have to walk to Universitetet), now Ekhagen has lost its bus route. The only reason I know this is important is because there are many elderly people in Ekhagen who rely upon the bus for mobility, so that isn't necessarily a good thing unfortunately. Ekhagen is a problematic district, though, as it is a "one way in one way out" district, is incredibly hilly and has awful roads (single lane and very windy) which is hell for the bus drivers to get up - especially in winter. Really the whole district was a planning mistake, but that doesn't mean it should be left without sufficient transport options.

Quote:
The following lines are not changed in the new route: Blåbusslinjerna 1-4, rödbusslinjerna 69, 71, 73, 74, 76, 77 and the night bus lines 91 and 94.

Oh, Ekhagen. I remember that the bus stops were pretty empty when I was travelling to/from Lappis almost every day. Many people tend to go to the bus stops located downhill anyway. Some smaller buses would suit to serve the area as it is difficult for the regular buses to get there.

Yeah, I catch those buses every day, twice a day, and still do and have done since the end of 2012, so yes, I do know them quite well, thank you (as does my wife).

Note that I said EXACTLY what you said - the neighbourhood is a problematic, however, you cannot cut off an elderly community without making sure there is närtrafiken - and guess what, there is none for Ekhagen as of yet, so hopefully they'll be able to put one in (http://www.fardtjansten.sll.se/sv/Va...m-nartrafiken/ ). You are right that many able-bodied people are able to catch the bus at the bottom of the district, but those are not the people I am concerned about at all. It's those with pushchairs who live at the top (and yes, there are quite a few) and the elderly that matter in this case.

Nacka kommun and Atkins made a possibility study for reconstruction of Salstjöbanan light railway in Sickla, Nacka. According to the plan, the tracks can be lifted up and placed on the estacade and the top of an existing building in Sickla köpkvarter. A new joint tunnelbana (planed extention of the blue line) and Salstjöbanan station would be used by passengers of both systems. Among other things, such project would make more space for further expansion of Nacka municipality.

I sooo hope that happens!
And that the whole stretch will get double tracking.

I also notice the trains they've used in the renders are all some type of very long trams. Not the expected re-purposed C20. Maybe a sign of what Nacka municipality want long-term.

Bromma, Kista and Helenelund in Sollentuna will be connected by a light-rail line as Sollentuna kommun and SL agreed on the importance and financing of the project.

Some more videos from Stockholm on a beautiful sunny day.

First up - red line arriving at Universitetet.







Slussen Metro station to bus and Saltsjöbanan platform - bonus of departing metro trains.







Slussen bus station to the T-bana.







Liljeholmen T-bana, a view of new and old metro stock. Liljeholmen is a major metro stop in the south of Stockholm.







Liljeholmen light rail (Tvärbanan) departure. It was quite crowded given the good weather.

Oh, and two more rather unique videos from my trip today. I had to replace the audio as I wanted to talk to my wife on the journey, so sorry if you don't like the music (plus the bus squeaked the whole way too due to the bendy section in the middle).

First is a bus ride all the way from Slussen to Hellasgården.







And the reverse trip - more views of the roads into Slussen this way.

Haha, I always have! I've got over 400GB of videos and photographs of Stockholm ranging from 2011 all the way to present documenting nearly every suburb in the city. There are very few places I have not been to and photographed.
