The City of Stockholm is responsible for all municipal roads, streets and squares. The transport system must be reliable, safe, secure and sustainable.
As the City grows and Stockholmers increase in number, opportunities to travel and transport goods must also be expanded. Expanding the infrastructure for pedestrians, cyclists and public transport is important for Stockholm to function.

As the City grows, there is a need for a change in the way we look at travel and transport, and how we use public space. The City’s accessibility strategy shows how we can cope with the increase in travel by striking a balance and prioritising in the space that exists.
There are also a number of policy documents that describe how the City should work on transport issues and what goals there are for work to achieve safe and efficient transport with the least possible climate and environmental impact.
Every year, the City converts streets, squares and other areas into inviting public spaces with furniture, plants and culture within the framework of the special Vibrant Stockholm initiative. Various activities are organised during both summer and winter seasons, and the initiative is developed by the City of Stockholm in close collaboration with the business community and the City’s citizens.

The City’s functions and people are the starting point when it comes to designing urban spaces such as streets, squares and quays.
The City’s strategy for public spaces complements the accessibility strategy, with guidelines describing how the City’s streets, squares and other public spaces evolve.
