Nyt Bynet

Banner image Nyt Bynet - 13 October 2019

On October 13 2019, we will form a close connection between the buses and Cityringen, which opened on the 29th of September.

The Copenhagen Metropolitan area will have 17 new metro stations and a number of large transit points. For many people, the opening of Cityringen will mean new and faster ways of getting around, as you can use the metro for an entire trip or parts of it.

Given the many new metro stations, the buses will be closely connected to both new and existing metro lines and trains in an entirely new bus network – Nyt Bynet – so that you can get to and from metro and trains quickly and directly – both into and out of the city.

For 95% of the passengers, the distance to the bus, train or metro will still be less than 400 metres.

We are adjusting the buses

In Nyt Bynet, the function of 30 bus lines will be adjusted to accommodate Cityringen, so that they work well with the metro and train net. It means that the need for some of the bus lines that we know today will change. Consequently, Nyt Bynet means changes to the bus lines, line numbers and timetables that you know today.

Questions and answers
What is Nyt Bynet?

Cityringen, expected to open on 29 September, will provide 17 new metro stations, and the number of major transit points will increase from 7 to 17. Therefore, the buses must be connected closely with new and existing metro lines and trains in one coherent organism.

We call it Nyt Bynet. Nyt Bynet means that the buses will run to new stations and consequently also along new roads compared to today. Nyt Bynet comprises A, C and S buses and the usual yellow buses.  

Who determines Nyt Bynet?

The municipalities and the region of the Copenhagen Metropolitan area determine how the buses will run within the municipal and regional limits. Therefore, in cooperation with Movia, all municipalities and the region have determined that adjustments to bus operation must take place.

How the A, C and S buses will create connection in Nyt Bynet was already decided in early 2017 following political consultation in the 45 municipalities and two regions in the Copenhagen Metropolitan area and on Zealand.

Likewise, in the spring of 2018 it was determined how the usual yellow buses should run following political consultation, including citizens’ meetings, in the municipalities and the regions.

How have you determined how the buses will run?

Nyt Bynet was established based on the principle that the buses must be closely connected to the new and existing metro and trains. The metro and trains are the main arteries of the transportation organism. The buses form the necessary connections, bringing persons to the major transit points, so that they can get on quickly – and the other way again to all branches.

Nyt Bynet was therefore planned based on the creation of better cohesion, shorter travel time, more connections and new travel options, and will be the future for 100 million passengers a year.

What does the implementation of Nyt Bynet cost?

The costs for operating buses after the opening of Cityringen are at the same level as today.

What does Nyt Bynet mean in terms of how quickly I reach my destination?

It is faster to travel under ground than above ground, so many trips will be faster - even if you may have to change between bus, train or metro.If you are going into the city, you can change to the metro for the last leg of the trip – that gives an overall shorter travelling time.

Where can I see how many departures my bus will have in Nyt Bynet?

You can see that by clicking on the requested bus line above on this page. Here you can see both the map of the bus line and its departure frequency.

Why must the buses be reorganised once Cityringen opens?

We will have 17 new metro stations once Cityringen opens, and thereby many new and faster ways to travel in the city. With many new stations, the buses will also need to run in a new way. Therefore, the bus routes have been adjusted so they are closely connected to the new and existing metro lines and S-trains. That should give good coherence for passengers across modes of transport and make better use of the new, faster travel options with the metro.

Could the buses just be left as they are?

No. It makes no societal sense to expand the metro substantially so people can travel faster through the city, without looking at how the new metro tackles the job the buses used to have. The buses must be connected to the metro and S-trains so that everything functions as one large organism.

Does Nyt Bynet imply that a lot of bus lines will be closed?

The major change is the fact that you will probably have to take a bus other than your usual one or use the new metro some of the way. For some, that will mean a big change until we really get used to the new city network.

28 existing bus lines are being reorganised in Nyt Bynet, and five lines are being replaced by other bus lines.

Is Nyt Bynet not merely an excuse for saving money on the buses?

No, the purpose of Nyt Bynet is to connect the buses with trains and the metro so that everything functions as one large organism. Nyt Bynet will ensure that as many citizens as possible benefit from buses, trains and the metro and make even greater use of public transport.

Will passengers have to walk longer to the stops in 2019?

We cannot rule that out, but there are still lots of stops in Nyt Bynet. And 95% of us will still have to walk less than 400 metres to the bus, train or metro.

The change lies in the fact that you may have to take a different bus from your usual one or use the new metro some of the way. For some, that will mean a big change until we really get used to the new city network.

I do not live close to Cityringen. Why should my bus follow another route?

We expect that many will benefit from the new metro, also outside Copenhagen and Frederiksberg. When your bus runs a different route in the future, the aim is that you and your neighbours can reach a metro or train station easily and quickly, so that trips to, and in Copenhagen will be faster.

People have said that the buses are going to drive to the metro. Does that mean that my local buses will disappear or will not run as much in the local area?

In general, there will be local bus services on the same routes as today. The change lies in the fact that the buses will perhaps drive to another destination, or the number of departures may have changed. But some trips may include a change to another bus or to the metro in the future.

What about the elderly who cannot walk any further to the new bus stops?

95% of us will still have to walk less than 400 metres to the bus, train or metro. Fundamentally, only few of us will have to walk further to the nearest stop.

Some citizens may probably have to take another bus or have to change to get to their usual destination.
