WSC also wants traffic to flow smoothly. Land use and public transport must be planned across municipal boundaries, focusing increasingly on rail transport and cross-city traffic in particular. WSC already has a ready-made solution for this: the Science Tram. The Science Tram would enable smooth, ecologically friendly transport between different campus areas. The share of public transport in the Capital Region’s cross-city traffic must be increased to thirty per cent by 2025.
WSC advocates good services for everyone. In particular, the services, health and wellbeing of young and low-income residents of the city, such as students, must be guaranteed. The main focus in rooting out social and health-related problems should be on prevention, and access to low-threshold mental health services, for instance, must be considerably improved. First treatment contact must occur everywhere within one month of seeking treatment. Day-care solutions must be practical from the perspective of full-time students with a family, too.
