Allowed to Stand in the Bus
Passengers in Swedish busses will furthermore be allowed to stand.
According to a study carried out by the Swedish Road Administration it is not practical to introduce obligatory seating for everyone – despite the risk of damage.
The study concludes that a ban on standing in the bus could hardly be monitored by the police.
Apart from that, more busses and tighter timetables would be necessary in order to guarantee enough seats for all passengers, which would amount to higher costs.
