Karlstad meeting November 2013

Värmland, Sweden

Värmland Traffic about TRACT


Pilot-tests with employees at County council in värmland

For one month selected employees at the County Council in Värmland tested to use Värmlandstrafiks new app “Bussiness Travel”. With this app they were able to search their trip, pay and get a ticket in their mobile for their work related trips with public transport. And, in the end of the month an invoice is sent to their employer, who at the same time gets an overview of their employees travels. Outcome of the test was valuable feedback about the app from the testers, insights we need to improve the app before launch.

Visit by Dutch partners

April 10th Rob Willems from Hanze University and Attie Sijpkes from OV-bureau Groningen Drente visited Värmlandstrafik.


During the meeting we presented the apps developed by participation organisations and discussed their transferability between the countries. Then, Rob Willems held a usability workshop where he presented theories of usability and user experience, and gave valuable insights in the development of mobile apps and the usability issues that arise and how to cope with them in the design methodology. Finally, we tested Värmlandstrafiks mobile app with travel planner, to travel by bus in Värmland.
