2. Accessibility and Proximity
2.1 Easy to live without a car
Stockholm Royal Seaport is served by a metro, several bus lines and a shuttle boat. The majority of developers meet the requirements for parking spaces for bicycles and cars. In total, approximately 7,490 bicycle spaces and 1980 car spaces have been built for 6,970 people. 8% of the car parking spaces on the street are set aside for car pools.
The residents survey from 2019 shows that:
- 66% are satisfied with public transport. This is an improvement compared to 2016 when 42% answered that they were satisfied. Those over 65 are generally more satisfied with public transport than other age groups. More residents are satisfied with the access to walking and cycling paths and the opportunity to walk or cycle to nearby neighborhoods.

- 42% use public transport at least five days a week during the winter, which is slightly more compared to 2016 when it was 39%. During the winter months, residents use public transport to a greater extent to get to or from the area. The corresponding proportion during the summer is slightly smaller, probably because the proportion who walk or cycle is often larger.
2.2 Efficient, sustainable freight transport
Locally established Construction Consolidation Centre (2013) and Mass Consolidation Centre (2018).
- Co-loading of the Construction Consolidation Centre is 63% (goal 75%) and full loaded in direct transport is 73 % (goal 50%).
- The Mass Consolidation Centre and the development work that has been done with crushing and bulk materials management close to urban areas have reduced mass transports by 69%.
2.3 Street as a meeting place
Streets for activity and recreation are planned in future stages.
2.4 Five minutes to basic amenities
Everyday services such as a grocery store, preschool and bus stops are within a 5-minute walk.
All residents have a park within 200 meters.
