Sustainable mobility, transport and transport infrastructure management

We create sustainable and long-term solutions in the planning of the traffic system and the maintenance of the transport network. The objective of the environmental work carried out by the Finnish Transport Agency is an eco-efficient traffic system that places as little burden as possible on the environment and supports a balanced area structure and a harmonised community structure.

The objective of the environmental work carried out by the Finnish Transport Agency is an eco-efficient traffic system that places as little burden as possible on the environment and supports a balanced area structure and a harmonised community structure.

In 2015, the Finnish Transport Agency prepared an environmental programme that contains the objectives, indicators and concrete procedures of environmental work for the next few years. The main focus areas of environmental work include adaptation to and mitigation of climate change, the protection of the groundwater and the ground, the reduction of adverse effects of noise and vibration, the protection of the Baltic Sea, and air quality. More information is available on the Environment page (in Finnish).

The case example below presents the project related to the promotion of public transport. The sustainability report contains more information on tasks related to sustainable mobility, transport and transport infrastructure management.

 

Renewed Reittiopas.fi and Journey.fi websites

HSL (Helsinki Region Transport) and the Finnish Transport Agency are developing a national journey planner. The new open journey planner to be completed in 2016 offers help in route planning, stop-specific departure time estimates and information on any traffic incidents.

After the renewal, the Journey Planner and Journey.fi can better meet the modern requirements. One of the key objectives is to find ways to gather scattered information on national public transport into a single place. In addition, the availability of real-time information in a centralised location will enable the development of new services and also promote the Mobility as a Service business.

After the renewal, the Journey Planner and Journey.fi will remain separate services from the user’s perspective but a common data storage is used for both of them. The new journey planner will include all forms of public transport as well bicycle and walk routes more extensively than before. Open map data
