– To test a digital service for booking and payment for transfers, where more ancillary services and collaborations can potentially be built on at a later stage.
– To inspire more visitors and residents to take part in all the nature experiences that exist outside the city.
– To promote the development of outdoor experiences in Östersund’s immediate area, for example with ancillary services that can be combined with the transfer solution to create collaborations for more companies.

– To contribute to reduced congestion at parking areas.
