Abstract [en]

Vasaloppet is a cross country ski event which has been held in Sweden for about 50 years. Now

more than 50,000 people of different ages participate in various cross country ski races during the

Vasaloppet winter week in Dalarna County. This increasing demand needs good traffic and

transportation planning to avoid congestion and provide safe, on time and environmentally

friendly transportation for participants and visitors to the area. The key for a good event traffic

planning is reliable and up-to-date traffic data which is not available for the Vasaloppet winter

week.

This study is an attempt to collect traffic data in order to find the movement patterns in the area

and estimate origin-destination matrices for the main event of Vasaloppet week. Based on

resources and time limitation it was decided to use a web-base

d participants’ survey in order to

collect traffic data. The link to the survey was sent to email address of a sample of 5000

participants.

About 64% of the participants drove from their home town to the area and about 31 percent

travelled by bus. Train and airplane have a very small share in travel mode to the area. Malungsälen,

Mora and Älvdalen are three municipalities in Dalarna County with the highest share in

accommodating participants. On the day of the race, bus and car have approximately the same

share in travel mode with 45% and 47% respectively.
