Here he is! The one-millionth traveller on Skånetrafiken's bus route 545 in 2019. “It feels good to use the bus. But it usually has some trouble keeping on time," says Ali Hosseini, one-millionth traveller.

19-year-old Ali came to Sweden four years ago. He lives in Hanaskog and is on the metal fabrication and welding programme at Göinge training centre in Sibbhult.

Last year, Skånetrafiken reached one million travellers on route 545 first during the Christmas holidays. This year, it was earlier due to the bus route running within CSK, C4 Shopping (opened in September 2018) and secondary school students in Östra Göinge travelling with Skånetrafiken to school (since the autumn term 2018).

In 2014, there were 750,000 travellers who used the route - now it is one of Skånetrafiken's successful bus routes
