Visit Åre hassle free – take advantage of Åre 2019 Park & Ride locations 

Dela

With 120 000 visitors expected in Åre during the World Championships from 4-17 February, traffic congestion poses a risk that is best managed proactively. That’s why Åre 2019 has set up two convenient Park & Ride locations slightly outside town in Duved and Såå.

It will be crowded (and cozy) in Åre during the Championships. To reduce hassle for the event’s daily visitors and to avoid a traffic and parking chaos in town, ski fans arriving from Östersund or Trondheim can park in convenient locations in Duved and Såå. Both will have designated Åre 2019 Park & Ride lots with frequent shuttle buses taking the visitors directly to town and later back to their cars. 

Shuttle buses will service both Park & Ride locations from 8:00 AM until 9:00 PM in a maximum of 30-minute intervals. During peak times, additional buses will circulate to ensure that any waiting time is minimized. Everything will be within walking distance from the drop-off locations in Åre, including Medals Plaza, Åre Square, Sponsor Village and the National Arena.

– Parking in central Åre is very restricted during the Championships so to enhance the visitors’ experience and to improve traffic flow we have chosen the Park & Ride solution, said Sebastian Dahlström, Åre 2019 Transportation Manager. 

Park & Ride will reduce traffic in town but also helps reduce the event’s environmental impact. Transport is what contributes the largest share of the Championships’ carbon footprint. That’s why using the Park & Ride lots will be free of charge for electronic or other sustainable vehicles, or if there are three or more passengers per vehicle. The pricing scheme is another way for Åre 2019 to promote making sustainable transport choices.

– We have also chosen this solution to encourage people to car-pool and thereby make the trip to and from Åre a bit more environmentally friendly. All revenue from our Park & Ride will be donated to local sport clubs so if visitors wish to pay even if they have a full car, we are happy that people wish to contribute, said Sebastian Dahlström.

The Park & Ride lot in Duved offers space for 1000 vehicles while the one in Såå will have space for 1500 cars. Åre 2019 believes that there is enough capacity to service anyone wanting to enjoy the Championships hassle-free and to take advantage of a convenient solution to any parking or traffic issues. 

How? Leave your car at the Åre 2019 Park & Ride in Såå or in Duved. You can pay with Swish or with the Easy Park app. Take one of the shuttle buses to town and back for no additional charge. 

Cost? 30 Swedish crowns per car unless there are three or more people in the car. Sustainable vehicles (electric cars, cars running HVO) are free of charge.

Åre 2019 is working together with KR trafik to offer bus trips from Östersund that include an entry ticket. From the Tröndelag area in Norway, Åre 2019‘s partner G-travel offers travel packages including travel by bus and entry. For more information visit our Tickets page.

Where life can be lived - reflections of a volonteer19.2.2019 09:34:46 CETPressmeddelande

Yet another Alpine World Championship in Åre has come to an end. The third through the years. Skiers, visitors and volunteers have lived and breathed the World Championships for weeks. The organization has done the same for years. Beyond all the races that have been raced, the medals that have been awarded, something else has taken place. Perhaps the thoughts have been thought before, maybe they have been awaken when being here. Thoughts of the real meaning of life, or rather, thoughts of what kind of life we want to live. Thoughts of where our children should grow up, of where our everyday lives should take place. Where life should be lived.
