    S trains

    The backbone of transportation in Copenhagen is the S-Tog regional train system, although there is metro also. Buses travel to destinations outside the train network.

    All public transport in Copenhagen, as well as the rest of the country, operates on a zone system. The smallest ticket is the two-zone ticket which will cost you DKK 17, and can be purchased from ticket offices, vending machines and bus drivers. It will allow you to travel around Copenhagen proper for an hour. A ten-trip klippekort will give you a discount of around 40%, and you can also purchase a day pass starting at DKK 90.

    Buy Clip Cards!!

    These are clipcards that I have puchased.They will cost you 110 Krones and you get 10 clips per card. Once your card is clipped then you are allowed to reuse this one clip for an hour without having it cliped again.If you are staying here longer than a couple weeks I would say get a monthly pass. It will cost more but will save you money in the long run!!

    Copenhagen has an excellent public transport system consisting of train, metro and bus. Tickets can be purchased on the bus or from kiosks and vending machines. Discount cards are available for 10 journeys (Klippkort). The tickets have to be punched and are valid for at least 1 hour.

    Public transport is safe, reliable, clean and inexpensive. Both trains and buses are frequent and efficient. As a city we offer the fastest and cheapest airport-to-city-centre rail link in any European capital: just a 20-minute ride at the cost of only DKK 22,50 (Remember to purchase the ticket before getting on the train).

  • Buy the convenient 10 trips Clip Card!

    by luca_jensen Written Dec 11, 2002

    When in Copenhagen you will probably find public transport is, though efficient, quite expensive (unless you're used to the unreasonable prices of the London Tube...). The fare for 1 zone is 7 Kr., that is 95 Euro or Dollar cent... considering that most of your travels will probably be through 2 zones or more you will soon realize tickets do add up. If you are going to travel often you should opt for a 10 trips Clip Card. A 2 zones Card costs 90 Kr. (a bit more than 12 € or $ instead of neraly 19). What's also good is that you can use more clips for a longer trip: once I went to the Bakken entertainment park by train and could use my Clip Card by stamping 2 segments instead of one. Oh and you can use it to go to and from the airport too!

    Public transport around Copenhagen is excellent, as are the cycle lanes. Makes it very easy to get around.
