Current developments and projects :

Copenhagen is growing by around 10.000 inhabitants per year and the need for efficient transport is increasing. A new metro ring line is expected to open in 2019 providing new strong public transport services to the city and making it more attractive to use public transport to and from Copenhagen.

In the outskirts of Copenhagen the first lightrail line is expected to open in 2024 connecting the northern, western and southern parts over 28 km and with 28 stations.
The heavy regional system will be improved and a new line from Ringsted to Copenhagen will open in 2018.

The first +way line 5C has opened in Copenhagen and is carrying more than 21 million pas-sengers per year. +way is the Movia version of a BRT like system that provides many of the advantages of a BRT system, but also has some compromises build in.
In the rural areas there has been a significant increase in the use of DRT (Demand Respon-sive Transport) called Flextrafik that combines transport of disabled, patients, elderly and public transport users from address to address. All transport planned in one IT system.

The municipalities and regions behind Movia have agreed to work towards a fossil free bus network in 2030. Plans are ongoing for introducing electric buses in Roskilde and Copenha-gen from 2018.
