Traffic and public transport, Bus | There will soon be changes on several local bus lines


For many lines, the departure time is adjusted by a few minutes to adapt to train departures. Some bus lines are extended, and some bus lines are also closed.

– Overall, the route offer is better adapted to where people live and work, and offers many new travel options, says Ruter’s spokesperson, Øystein Dahl Johansen.

– Together with the districts, Ruter has listened to input on changes and landed on a route offer that we believe is a good fit.

These are the local lines that are getting changes:

  • Direction Grorud: platform J in Olaf Helset’s road
  • Direction Åsbråten: platform F inside the terminal

Start of new contracts

10 December also marks the start of some of the last emissions-free contracts in Oslo. Unibuss and Nobina start their missions in Oslo’s northeast and southeast, respectively.

– As communicated earlier, the electric buses that will run southeast of Oslo are delayed from the factory in the Netherlands. The start-up and route change will therefore take place with buses that have been in use elsewhere.

The 76 new electric buses will be phased in as they are delivered towards the summer of 2024. The start-up in the north-east of Oslo is going as planned with 78 new, electric and emission-free buses.

– Among other things, the new buses will have external speakers, door lighting, integrated child seats, better collision protection and safety systems that will contribute to increased safety for the driver, passengers and other road users.
