We took a bus from Jamvagsg (just down the road from Central Station) - to Djurgarden - and back again. It wasn't very far (about 10-15 mins) and the driver was very helpful. The Kupongs (not a typo) are 15SEKs and you need two of them for each journey.
I would love to give you more information but the Kupong is all in Swedish. (And the cow has nothing to do with this tip either).
In the city centre the ordinary red buses have recently been joined by several even more modern blue main lines. Many buses use fuels that are easy on the environment, such as ethanol. Two lines popular with tourists are no 47 (to Gröna Lund, Skansen and the Vasa Museum) and no 69 (to Kaknästornet). Buses are a great way to discover Stockholm.
If you want to save money on the trip between Stockholm and the Bromma Airport you can use public transportation by taking the SL-bus.
Just outside the terminal building you can find the bus stand for line 110 to Alvik and 152 to Älvsjö. With bus 110 you can change to the green subway line in Alvik and with 152 to the blue subway line in Sundbyberg. Both trips take about 5 minutes and cost 30 SEK. All SL-cards are also valid. This to be compared with the airport coaches who takes 69 SEK for a trip to Stockholm City.
Well then, take the bus!
You can go all over the city and it's surrounding with the bus. Taking the bus is a good alternative if you would like to see the city. I do recommend you not to go early in the morning or around 4.30pm until 6.30 pm as it is in the middle of rush hour on weekdays.
Recreation in Stockholm is very near at hand. We have a little more than 190 nature reserves and two national parks. There are many hiking trails so take the chance and set out on an excursion. Ängsjö is one of the smallest national parks in the country and is located in the Roslagen Archipelago. Take the boat directly from Stockholm or choose a short boat trip from one of the landing stages near the island. Parts of Tyresta National Park, just south of Stockholm, were destroyed by fire a few years ago. Today you can go on exciting guided tours around the area where the fire took place. The House of National Parks, which is the focal point in Tyresta, exhibits all the national parks in Sweden in a house built in the form of a map of Sweden.
The best place to start is on a sightseeing tour with City Sightseeing. They offer guided tours in first-class buses, as well as combined bus and boat excursions.
there is a free bus that goes to IKEA and back. it goes every hour from a point near the tourist information.
As Stockholm is not a small city, the bus is a good alternative to walking. I enjoyed the walks but to get to Skansen & the Nordic Museum, I took the bus instead.
