As a youth, student and active part of the business community, I will be very disappointed if a division of Viken takes place, writes Tobias Waage Bremnes (18), leader of Asker and Bærum Unge Venstre.

Good public transport is a necessity for most people.

County councilor for transport in Viken Olav Skinnes (Sp) recommends a division of Viken county municipality. It is completely irresponsible to use closer half a billion kroner on a division, I mean. At the same time, we are facing major financing problems and a collective crisis that will affect many.

As a result of national measures and recommendations, the public transport companies in Viken have received reduced income, and do not expect standardized income before 2024. Only Routes requires 900 million kroner extra in 2022 to avoid cuts in the route offer.

Will hit many

I, like many others, depend on good public transport to be able to get to school, travel to work or to take advantage of cultural facilities. Good public transport is a necessity for most people. If Routes will have to resort to reduced departures and route cuts, this will hit students, commuters and districts the hardest.

Maintaining a good public transport service is only one of the things the money saved on a division of Viken could have gone to. Half a billion kroner is enough to make equipment professional funds for free and strengthen the school health service.

Wrong priority

I think it is very problematic that such large sums should go to a division rather than solve real problems and improve our educational institutions.

As a youth, student and active part of the business community, I will be very disappointed if a division of Viken takes place. The consequences are clear, and it is obvious that we have very little to gain from such a decision.
