The Uppsala light railway will be financed in three different ways.

  • Environmental Agreement with the Swedish State
    A light railway is a large investment but not something that a city or region need pay entirely by themselves. The state grants financial support to cover up to half of the construction costs.

  • Land value capture around the new railway
    Property owners who build and develop land close to the light railway have the opportunity to contribute financially to the light rail project. This also applies to the city as a landowner. The value of the land increases and provides value added and revenue.

  • The city and the region are investing
    The city council and county council are responsible for funding decisions. The final allocation of expenditure and responsibility between the region and the city will be made in conjunction with the implementing decision in 2021.
