The free trip during the summer holidays included school children who finished 6-9 in primary school or year 1 and 2 in secondary school in the province.
94 percent increase
A total of 15,800 summer holiday cards were handed out and an average of 17 trips per card were made, something Anna Fransson, chairman of the regional council, regards as positive.
"The state support for the free public transport during the summer holidays has made it possible for many more young people to attend summer and leisure activities in Kronoberg, which has resulted in an increase of 94 percent of youth travelers in Kronoberg – a great success, says Anna Franson.
The assessment of youth trips is estimated in the period 15 June – 15 August 2018.
