Abstract [en]

In this case study the area of Östra Sala backe, that will be built in the eastern part of Uppsala, has been studied. Uppsala County wants to lower the area needed for parking from todays parking standard of 1,1 parking per household. Östra Sala backe has a vision of becoming an environmental friendly area and a living neighborhood. The way the inhabitants use cars for transports currently is not sustainable. Östra Salabacke wants to change the behavior to become sustainable and to encourage usage of alternative transport, without affecting the freedom the car provides. If fewer journeys is to be made by car or the car use is more efficient the parking norm will decrease.

In the case study a model has been developed using data about population distribution and travel patterns. Data has been obtained from two similar projects in Sweden,Västra Hamnen in Malmö and Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm. These projects have been chosen due to the similarities in size, located in regions with a high growth of population and they are all environmental pilot projects. Data from reports about travel behavior and patterns among the Swedish population has been used to simulate the model developed. A few assumptions have been made about Östra Sala backe due to lack of statistic and the fact that the area has not yet been built. This data is the basis for the simulation to find a suitable size and mix of cars in the carpool of ÖstraSala backe.
