Challenge / Goal

Supported by new approaches and technologies, Turku committed a case study to test and utilise the developed co-operation model and new technologies to enhance smart inter-modal solutions in public transport planning. Particular focus was placed on the potential for park and ride in the Turku region. The City of Turku and the Regional Council of Southwest Finland also developed and established a mobility barometer to increase knowledge of citizens’ satisfaction of sustainable mobility infrastructure and mobility services.


A detailed report on interactive and participatory planning has been authored, describing new ways and methods to carry out participatory and interactive planning processes. The ‘mobility barometer’ survey was carried out from March to May 2017. The survey asked for feedback about the region’s transport system targets and goals. It was an online survey which the region’s citizens were invited to answer. More than 3,500 responses were received and subsequently analysed.

The planning phase for park and ride scheme has begun and was finalised in spring 2018. A consultant has been contracted to support the identification of the region’s park and ride demand and to develop a concept for planning and implementation. The planning process of the scheme included new participatory methods, such as a map survey of the potential parking spaces, a workshop for stakeholders, interactive steering group meetings, and negotiations with representatives for trade. In addition, an online collaboration tool has been used for internal and external meetings.

Citizen participation

Citizen participation was a strong focus of this case, relying on feedback via the online survey to discover ideas of most benefit to the local citizens. The analysis of these were responses were used as foundation for the planning processes which followed.
