    The Malmö card

    The cute card with the duck's ass

    Getting around Malmö wasn't really a problem as we got the Malmö card that entitled us to free rides on the local buses. Yes, it's the card with the duck's ass and we got it at the the Malmö Tourist Office ( Malmö Central Station ). It also included our entrance fee to the Malmöhus Castle, Malmö Museums and the Science and Maritime House etc. Not too bad a deal.

    A card that's valid for 1 day costs 125SEK ($13)

    Malmo bus ticket

    The green local buses of Malmo are operated by Skanetrafikken. A popular bus line for tourists is number 20 (Ringlinjen) which serves a round tour through Malmo. A single bus ticket can be bought from the driver. It costs 15 SEK and is valid for 1 hour (2003).

    Getting around

    Looking back towards Denmark

    It is easy getting around Malmö as buses run to most parts of the city and they are fairly frequent. Ten minutes in between buses during rush hour and 15-20 minutes at weekends. If you look for a particular bus, most of them run from either the Central station or Gustav Adolfs Torg (square). Don't be confused about the colours of the buses. The city buses are green and the regional buses are yellow, but you are allowed to use the regional buses throughout the city too on the same tickets.

    All tickets now have to be bought before you board, either at Skånetrafiken service offices (Central station or Triangeln station), ticket machines (all major stations) or in Pressbyrån kiosks and other places scattered around town (the latter only do chargeable cards for several journeys). A chargable card has to be charged for at least SEK 200 so that's useful only if you stay a while. Single tickets are valid for an hour which is enough to take you everywhere. Cards, timetables and information can be had at the Skånetrafiken centres but you also have a journeyplanner on the website below.

    Local transportation in Skåne

    Getting around Malmö and the surrounding areas is quite easy. The net of trainrail is exstensive, and the buses regular. However: It might be worth while to study the different tickets. If you for example are going to see København and Helsingör you might want to by a Öresund rundt-ticket for 199 SEK. You are forsed to take the train over the bridge and the ferry on the reurn though.

    A "Rabattkort" will give you a discount of 20% on all journeys in Skåne and Denmark. The backside is thet you hafe to charge it up with atleast 200 SEK.

    Public Transport

    Oskar on a Malmo Bus

    The only public transport available in Malmo is the local bus system. But the city is small enough that you won't need a bus, except for taking a visit to the Turning Torso, which is a little bit out of town. But still, in fine weather, should you be lucky to get that, walking to the Turning Torso is not strenuous.

    You can buy tickets on the bus from the driver.

    Malmo is a very easily walkable city and indeed it is a pleasure to wander. If you do need to use the local public transport this looks simple enough and buses run regularly to pretty much anywhere you could want to go.

    The main bus termini are at Central Station and Gustav Adolf Square and there are a range of ticketing options; from a single ride ticket to 24 hour and 72 hour passes. Tickets need to be purchased before boarding from machines or Skånetrafikens offices and the local tourist information centre on Skeppsbron.

    At the time of writing (March 2012) a single ticket costs 21 SEK, the 24 hr pass 65 SEK and the 72 hr 165 SEK.
