Municipalities of Jyväskylä Region to study development opportunities in passenger transport

Jyväskylä, Laukaa and Muurame have decided to study the current state of passenger transport in collaboration with social, health, education and culture services.

The volumes of passenger transport are significant: in social services, for example, the annual total is about 190,000 trips in Jyväskylä, Laukaa and Muurame, at a cost of about EUR 3.4 million.

The three municipalities would save costs and protect the environment if they could organise passenger transport beyond administrative departments and jointly contract out services to encourage competition.

The new model would be applied to transport organised in accordance with the Disability Services Act and the Social Services Act as well as the school taxi service, chartered transport and trips to day care centres, nursery schools and special schools.
