You can use this service to find out what effects your travel habits have on your finances, your health and the climate. The service covers the entire Skåne and Copenhagen Region.

The speed is calculated at 5 km/h (Fotgängarnas förening dec 2014) and calorie expenditure at 350 kcal/h (www.apoteket.se average between brisk and relaxed walking pace 2014).
The speed is calculated based on a normal speed of 18 km/h. The speed is based on information from Lund University showing that a normal cyclist to or from work maintain a speed between 18-22 km/h. Energy expenditure is calculated based on calorie expenditure of 600 kcal/h (www.apoteket.se average between brisk and relaxed walking pace 2014) when cycling at a speed of 18 km/h.
Journey times by cycle given assume flat terrain and do not take topographical conditions (differences in elevation) for the segment into account.
The cost of cycling is based on a bicycle purchase price of SEK 7,000 and use of the bicycle for 10 years, 220 days a year. Skåne residents cycle an average of 3 km one way, which yields an average return journey of 6 km (travel habits report ”Resvanor Syd 2013”). The cost of cycle maintenance is set to SEK 500 a year for a cycle that is used 220 days a year. Overall, this yields a cost for cycling of (700+500)/(6*220)= SEK 0.090/km.
Journey Comparison’s recommended segment is based on the shortest way from point A to point B for journeys on foot or bicycle but the fastest way for journeys by car. This means that the recommended route is not always the best in terms of traffic safety for walkers and cyclists.
The estimated cost per km is based on Bilsvar, the Consumer Agency’s web service for cars. Se Bilsvar.
Koldioxidberäkningarna utgår från Konsumentverkets webbtjänst Bilsvar. Enligt detta beräkningsunderlag släpper en Volvo V70 2.0 ut 206 g/km.
The term ‘cold start’ refers to a car started with a cold combustion engine (that is, the combustion chamber and intake manifold have cooled since the last time the car was used). A cold start entails poorer combustion conditions compared with a warm engine, which leads to an increase in fuel consumption of about 40 per cent for the first kilometre and thus higher CO2 emissions.
To compensate for poorer combustion conditions, a standardised CO2 emission of 41 grams has been added to the CO2 emissions for every commenced journey in the Journey Comparison tool (Swedish Transport Administration publication series Effektsamband 2010).
The estimated time required for car journeys is based on non-peak traffic hours. A time of 2.5 minutes for walking to/from the car park and paying parking charges is added at the beginning and end of the journey (5 minutes total).
To compensate for reductions in speed due to traffic lights, queues and zebra crossings in the town centres during peak traffic hours, a standardised time has been added to car journeys within the largest towns. This compensation is performed automatically for public transport.
Journey Comparison’s results for public transport (segments, service routes, costs and CO2 calculations) are based on data from Skånetrafiken. The journey way is determined by the final destination, which means that the most suitable way is indicated and not the stop closest to the start node. The public transport results apply to train/bus and walking to/from the stop. The shortest way is indicated for walking segments to and from the stop. The walking speed between the final stop and final destination is estimated at 4 km/h (which is equal to about 15 minutes per km). CO2 estimates are stated in kg of CO2 per person-kilometre.
The price of a one-way journey by public transport is estimated based on the cost of a monthly bus card divided by 440 journeys per year (220 working days).
Journey times for public transport are based on Monday departures at 8 o’clock in the morning. This means that there may be more advantageous departures leaving the current stop before 8 o´clock.
For the Copenhagen region, it states only information about train services. Detailed information about bus services are available on http://www.skanetrafiken.se.
