72 hours travel card or another alternative

by Ishtvan

Dear Friends,

I need your help.

I am arriving in Stockholm on 15 of January 2011.
I am going to stay 3 full days.
Please let me know, what is the best type of public transport travel
card for my case?

I did check SL Web-Site and found the following:
http://212.28.217.100/templates/PriceList.aspx?id=5302

72 hours travel card costs 200SEK (~22EUR)
But I am still not sure what it valid for.
-Is it for all zones? (A,B,C)
-Is it for all means of public transport? (metro, bus etc)
-Is it for unlimited number of trips withing the 72 hours time frame?
-Can I buy it without any problem at Central Bus station
(Cityterminalen) on Saturday(15 Jan) early morning?

If there is another card you can advice please let me know.
The purpose is to be flexible exploring the city, city's attractions.

Sorry if my questions are dummy ones :-)

No dumb questions.

The short answer is yes, to all of your questions.

You can even buy the 72-hour card at any manned SL booth at the Central Station and at the Stockholm Visitors Board at the arrival hall at terminal 5, Arlanda Airport. I dunno what you call "early morning" but if you see a 7-11 or a Pressbyrån booth open, you can get it there as well.

Good luck.

Oh yes. About your last question. There's always the Stockholm card, which includes both the public transport and discounts at museums, attractions, etc.

If you do the numbers, you can determine whether you'd save money by buying the Stockholm card vs buying the 72-hour card + paying the entrance fees (which can be expensive).

The 72-hour card is only valid for public transport.

Dear Marielexoteria,

Thank you a lot for your answers!

Please help me with the following.

Well, I arrive at Skavtsa airport at 7.45am and hopefully I'll be at Stockholm central bus station at about 09.30am.
It'll be Saturday 15 Jan, that's why I am asking about.

What is the Pressbyrån booth?
Can I find it open on Saturday at this time at the Bus Station?

Re: 72 hours travel card or another alternative

by marielexoteria

Oh I see. I'm not 100% sure of whether the Pressbyrån shops are open at 9:30'ish am, but the central station sure has a lot of manned booths.

From Cityterminalen there's an underway passage that links you directly with the central station, I think the passage goes straight to the top floor (close to the Arlanda Express platforms) and there is a Pressbyrån shop there that you can try. If that's not open, then follow the signs that say "Pendeltåg/Commuter train" or "T-bana/Metro". There's also a SL center on the way to the metro and that's open at that time.

Right now, the underway passage between the bus terminal and train terminal are off due to renovation but the alternative route is signposted in English and Swedish.

Re: 72 hours travel card or another alternative

by marielexoteria

Thanks AleWi. I completely forgot about that.

Thank you a lot for your answers!

Soon I'll come up with couple more questions I kindly ask you to answer :-)

Re: 72 hours travel card or another alternative

by Sjalen

Pressbyrån are our main newsagents at major junctions in cities. Today they are more of petron-station-like convenience shops with all kinds of snacks and things, and they also often act as agents for public transport. There is one at Cityterminalen too.

sorry this is so late: if i had three days in stockholm, i would just walk. taxis are fine when needed. Town is too beautiful to miss anything. shuttle bus to and from airport is all you need.

The visit to Stockholm was...

by blue-viggen

The visit to Stockholm was truly a memorable one, in fact so much so that I plan to learn the language and take many more visits to Sweden. Not just to Stockholm but the more rural areas to gain a better understanding of typical life in Sweden. This is a place that I could see even myself living for a period of time. My fondest memory has to be the old town and the sheer beauty and crisp smell of fresh cold Scandanavian air...

Partial solar eclipse on Aug 1, 2008

by marielexoteria

Sweden isn't normally the best place to watch solar eclipses because when they're supposed to happen, it's always cloudy or rainy. Today, however, it was different! I saw the partial eclipse from outside of my work place, armed with the inside plastic thingie of a floppy - here are the pictures.

Stadsbiblioteket (City Library)

by yooperprof

The City Library - in the Vasastaden neighborhood - is an interesting example of "stripped down" neo-classicism in architecture. It epitomizes the cool, sleek design for which Sweden is famous. Gunnar Asplund took the basic elements found in the 19th century neo-romantic "Kastlellet" in the middle of the sound and adapted them for his purposes. Both buildings have a squat semi-rectangular base topped by a round turret. Both buildings well represent the spirit of their time.

Language

by YellowMelon

Although most Swedes speak English very well they will certainly smile at you addressing them in Swedish.

Some useful phrases include:

Hello: Hej / Hallå / Tjenare
How are you?: Hur är det? / Hur mår du?
How do I get to... (a place, street etc.): Hur hittar jag till...
I don't speak Swedish: Jag talar inte svenska.
Thank you!: Tack! / Tack så mycket!
Yes: Ja
No: Nej
How much is...: Hur mycket kostar...
