The local transit company Skånetrafiken will stop running Öresund trains to Copenhagen once they are required to carry out ID checks on January 4th. Trains will, however, still run between Malmö and Kastrup airport.

Press and Communications Manager Ulrika Mebius also tells Radio Sweden that they will reduce commuter train departures during rush hour from once every 10 minutes to every 20 minutes. The journey will also take longer because everyone will have to get off at Kastrup Airport, the last stop in Denmark, to have their IDs checked.

Mebius says that SJ's decision not run trains across the bridge will not affect them very much, as there will be room on their trains to accommodate those who wish to continue their journey to Denmark. She does, however, say that the ID checks will have big consequences for commuters in the region.

"The impact of these ID checks will be huge in southern Sweden because we have so many commuters and the travel time will be longer," Mebius says.
