Vägvärket, The Swedish Road Administration have decided to have a test-trial of "Trängelsavgift", or something like Traffic Jam Fee. The fee would cost between 0SEK, during day time, none-rush hour, and weekends. And it can cost up to 20SEK single, but maximum one can pay is 60SEK in 24 hours.
The trail period will be held between 3rd of January to 31st of July of 2005. And then in late September, people of Stockholm will have a vote on whether to continue will it or no. Now, most people without cars will obviously vote yes, and people with cars will vote no. So it's basically to see whether there are more car owners, or more people which takes public transportation.
Now, this is a big gain for SL, since the profit of this will be huge; unfortunately, so far, I haven't got the numbers I need in order to count the profit per day (per 24 hours), and anyone who is interested in helping me can send me an e-mail to email@example.com.
Well, due to this, SL have introduce 14 new bus lines, with 206 new bus, of which 197 are Volvo B9S/Volvo 8500LEA and 9 Scania OmniLink. Amazing, all 206 buses are have diesel engines, which is interesting since SL is trying to be more environmental, when they are placing such a big order of buses which have diesel engines! Well, luckily, 120 new Scania OmniLink, with ethanol engines will be delivered during 2006-2008 to SL as part of the Stockholmsförsöket.
Here are the 14 new bus lines (you can click on the respective bus line to read more information about it, if it's available):
