    To Stockholm by bus

    Swebus Express at the Cityterminalen
    1 more image

    At the beginning of June 2004 I left Stockholm from the City Terminalen by bus to Oslo in Norway. One of the main bus operators is Swebus, which offer trips to and from most bigger towns in Sweden and Scandinavia; including Oslo, Copenhagen, Malmo, Gothenburg, Nyköping and Uppsala.

    In 2004 my single ticket to Oslo cost 265 SEK, but much more expensive tickets of up to 380 SEK were available as well. The journey time was approximately 8.5 hours.

    Stockholm's City Terminalen can be found just next to the Central Train Station in the heart of the city.

    On the buses

    If you want to visit Kaknäs tower, take the bus 69. It's an excellent way to see some eastern parts of Stockholm (and it passes close to Djurgården also). The inner city busses are blue, the regular ones are red and there are service routes for elderly people also. Almost every subway station and commuter train station is connected to at least one bus line. If the subway or commuter train doesn’t take you directly adjacent to your intended destination, chances are a bus will.

    Many inner city buses are running on eco-friendly fuels such as ethanol/biogas.

    The busdriver does not sell tickets onboard the bus, buy a ticket in advance or take some travel ticket or Stockholm Card. If you don't know the exact bus stop where you are going (or where the bus is going) ask driver, they are very helpful as Swedes are.

    Some price examples, the who system is so complicated and changing every now and then so please check the details from their web page.

    Pre-paid tickets are bought at Pressbyrån.
    Pre-paid ticket, per unit 15 SEK, reduced price* 9 SEK
    Vending machine ticket**, 1 zone 30 SEK, reduced price* 18 SEK

    TravelCards (they are active from the moment they are bought until the specified time has passed)
    1 Day/24 Hour card, 100 SEK, reduced price* 60 SEK
    30 Day Card, 690 SEK, reduced price* 420 SEK

  • Feedback on Bus Service

    by Preethi8549 Written Jun 11, 2012

    This is a feedback which I would like to give on the bus services in Stockholm. Last friday (08/06/2012) we a group of 12 people were on a way to board a cruz near slussen.So we got into bus number 53 from Slussen around 4:00 pm and got down near the boarding point. Then after sometime noticed that my friend missed her hand bag in the bus itself. We were to panic as all valuables were their in the hand bag.Just then I got a call from my friend'smobile sying the hand bag is with her eshe might be handing it to the driver. We requested driver to give it to us as soon as possible as we had only few minutes left to board the cruz. The driver was so nice that he brought it and gave us the bag within few minutes .We were al lbecame happy. I highly appreciate the person who found the bag and informed us and aslo the bus driver who upon our request got us the hand bag. Kudos to both the peopel. Stockholm rocks !!!. Sorry for not knowing the name of the people who helped us . But I sincerely thanks those people .

    Flygbussarna Airport Coaches

    A cheap(er) and convenient way of getting from Arlanda airport to Stockholm city is by the Flybussarna airport buses. They depart frequently, usually found outside the airport terminal building. Bus journey time to the city centre takes around 40 minutes, terminating at the City Terminal, beside the Centralen Station. A return/round-trip ticket costs 175 SEK.

    Flygbussarna to and from the airport

    When arriving at Arlanda airport there will be a Flybussen just outside the arrival hall. You can buy the tickets at one of the ticket counters or in the bus itself.

    A return ticket costs 190 SKr and the trip to/from Stockholm Central Station takes between 30 and 45 minutes depending on the traffic. It is very fast and very convenient!

    The hydrogen bus in Stockholm

    In the central of Stockholm you can see this bus. It's driven on hydrogen and the only exhaust fume is pure water. So if you want to get around in Stockholm in a environmentally friendly way, this is a really good choice. Something even better is that those busses are totally free during a test period in 2004.

    To/from Skavsta airport

    by marielexoteria Written Mar 16, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Skavsta airport is located about 100km south of Stockholm and it takes about 1,5 hours to get there (with little to no traffic). This is the airport that a lot of low-cost airlines prefer to use.

    To get to Stockholm from Skavsta there's 2 choices when it comes to shuttle buses: Flygbussarna and a new shuttle service offered by Ryanair called Fly by Coach. I've taken the shuttle with Flygbussarna and it was a very straight forward service. With them, you cannot buy the ticket from the driver using cash but there's a manned ticket booth by the exit of the airport. There's no need to pre-book the tickets but by buying them online you get to save some money and the tickets are valid for 3 months after the purchase date.

    Local Buses

    Since our travel cards were also valid on the local red buses we used them a couple of times to get around to some of the sights outwith the Tunnelbana system. They were frequent & easy to use. no 47 stops right outside Skansen and we took the 65 to Skeppsholmen. Both times we got the buses outside Central Station.

    WAITING FOR THE BUS

    When flying with Ryanair, you land on Skavsta airport, some 80 kms from Stockholm. Bus transportation is perfect. No waiting, the bus is there, the driver helps you put your luggage on the bus.
    The drive takes about 70 minutes and ends almost in the center of Stockholm. Very very convenient!

    You can buy your e-ticket in advance here

    Another way to get to the airport

    by jlanza29 Written Oct 19, 2007

    The Flygbussarna Airport Coach is a easy, safe, and reasonable way to get to Arlanda Airport, I had to catch a 5:00 a.m. flight..and the Arlanda express train doesn't start til 5:00 a.m. I found this bus service which runs 24 hours a day. The cost is 95 SEK one way and the driver takes all major credit cards.....it makes several stops but at 3:30 a.m. there wasn't much traffic and was at the aiport 30 minutes later. The bus has luggage racks for bags...highly recommended if you have to take an early flight like I did.....The bus has a web site....go to google and put in Flygbussarna and the site comes out with English page also.

    Flygbuss

    by Naokico Written Oct 7, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are few ways to get to Stockholm from Arlanda, the cheapest way (besides walking and biking), is the Flygbuss, a return ticket costs only SEK175 (I believe one way costs SEK 90), it takes about 40 minutes each way, which is not that bad, and the busses are quite comfortable and spacious. The Flygbuss boot is situated next to the exit from the terminal.
    The bus leaves every 10 minutes (at least at day time), so one hardly needs to wait, it makes few stops on the way and its last stop is ofcourse at the central train station.
