MetadataShow full item record
In order to develop a better transportation corridor between city of Trondheim and town of Steinkjer in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway a number of infrastructure investments are going to be made. Among them a double track railway is planned to be built between Trondheim Central Station and Trondheim Airport, Værnes. The new railway infrastructure between the City Center and the airport together with enhanced Norwegian National Railways service is going to improve the ground access to Værnes Airport significantly, even though two major airport express bus services are well established in the city. This master thesis aimed to examine the future competitiveness between the new train service and the airport express bus service, that is how the new train service is going to influence the modal split when accessing Værnes Airport. In addition to this, several correlations between passengers choices, background and opinions were planned to be discovered.
