Oslo (700.000 inhabitants) has a metropolitan area of 1.5 million inhabitants.

Oslo has an ambitious climate strategy adopted in 2019 with a goal of a 95% reduction in climate gas emissions by 2030. As per the Climate Strategy, Oslo is targeting emission-free PT in 2028, all private cars and vans on Oslo’s roads shall be emission-free in 2030 and private car traffic shall be reduced by one-third, with the aim to bring private cars down to no more than 10% of the total modal split in Oslo. Also, Oslo is about to pilot its first Zero Emission Zone starting in 2023. These targets align with the call’s objective and the push and pull measures approach have already proven to be efficient in Oslo when it comes to reducing private car ownership in the centre of Oslo. The NPRA’s report on sustainable mobility released in 2019 investigates the proportion of households without access to a car, which, for Oslo, has increased from 32%  in 2014 to 37% in 2019.
