This paper examines how quality of life has improved in Denmark after an introduction of new public transportation system. The system was adopted through local reform policy implemented in January, 2007, which regionalized local governments for improved public services and administrative efficiency. The reform reduced 14 counties (Amt) into 5 regions (Region) and 271 cities (Kommune), into 98. Each 5 region established a new public transportation company and plans regional bus services. Moreover, they have started "complementary transportation services" in cooperation with local taxi companies for everyone, especially for residents in rural areas.
