Sustainable transport

DTU is working on the preparatory work for the Light Rail, and Lyngby Campus will be used to test autonomous buses.

More cyclists 

To support sustainable forms of transport, more people need to cycle to, from, and around the campus, and more people need to feel that it is both easy and safe to cycle on campus. DTU’s mobility survey from 2019 shows that 41 per cent of students and 30 per cent of employees at Lyngby Campus use a bicycle. The aim is to raise these figures to 50 per cent and 40 per cent, respectively, by 2023, and to increase the number of bicycle parking spaces from 4,650 to 7,900.

To achieve this objective, an interconnected network of bicycle paths to, from, and within the campus will be established with suitable bicycle parking facilities, which in the long term will be housed in the new car parks.

Light Railway

The Greater Copenhagen Light Rail system will become operational in 2025.

The Light Rail system will stretch from Ishøj in the south-west of Copenhagen to Lyngby in the north, with a total of 29 stations along the way. The light railway will provide better connections between DTU and the rest of the Greater Copenhagen Area, and make travelling by public transport to and from the campus significantly easier.

Autonomous buses

By the time the Greater Copenhagen Light Rail is up and running, citizens will be travelling in autonomous buses. These buses will, among other things, be tested on Lyngby Campus.

The autonomous buses can operate with higher bus service frequencies, and DTU is responsible for all the IT work in the project, which you can read about here.
