93% of locals in Sweden find it easy to move around Stockholm. They can easily take ‘multimodal journeys’, switching from walking and cycling to trams and trains, with satisfying ease. Would Sydneysiders say the same thing for their city?

We recently heard from Mattias Askerson on the Sweden’s approach to multimodal public transport, from rolling out on-demand electric buses to retrofitting older developments with sustainable transport.

Mattias was then joined by panellists Simon Hunter, Sara Stace and moderator Estelle Grech to discuss the recent changes, challenges and opportunities that multimodal trips face in Sydney.
