Bergen: Optimised scenarios for Bergen Light Rail expansion


Bergen (Norway)

Challenge area:


Implementation period:


Supported by: EIT Urban Mobility

The Challenge

The goal: Help a Norwegian light rail system to add extensions to the existing network while improving overall efficiency.

The challenge: Bergen Light Rail had a visionary plan to transform a single-line light rail (20 km) into a comprehensive network, adding multiple extensions. How could they expand the network to optimise operational efficiency, increase ridership, and reduce costs?

The Solution

Asistobe tool combined internal public transport data with external data sources and leveraged AI to get a deep understanding of the real transportation needs in Bergen. Based on this, the tool proposed future transport scenarios that could efficiently handle an expanding network and suggested infrastructure improvements to optimise OPEX and CAPEX.
