Stockholms Län Transportation

  • Public Transportation

    Stockholm Transportation

    Stockholm has an excellent public transport system, including the subway (T-Bana), buses, trams, and even boats. UPDATED Fares as of June 2014: SL has a complicated fare system involving "units" or "coupons." Travel within 1 zone (see a T-Bana Zone map to view the zones) requires the use of 2 "units," while travel among 2 and 3 zones costs 3 and...

    The metro of Stockholm is called Tunnelbana (T-Bana) and consists of seven lines, which are grouped into three colours (green, red and blue). It was opened in 1950 and has at present approximately 100 stations, many of which are located in Stockholm's suburbs. The metro network is divided into three zones, which are the basis for the price system....

  • Arlanda Express

    Stockholm Transportation

    The purpose of this message is to prevent other visitors from taking the wrong train at Arlanda subway station and, consequently, from the hassle I had experienced on board of an express train in the morning of Friday, September 27, 2013, in Stockholm. After landing at Arlanda from Chicago I stopped at the information center of the airport to...

  • Central Station

    Stockholm Transportation

    In October 2013 I left Stockholm by train to Uppsala and returned on the same route. During the day the two cities are connected by at least one train per hour; at peak times even more. The trip took 38 minutes and a single ticket cost 108 SEK at the train station (SJ counter) or 84 SEK if bought online. I also used a suburban train from...

  • Buses

    Stockholm Transportation

    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...

  • Baltic Sea Ferries

    Stockholm Transportation

    I stayed on this ship for Sochi Olympics and I would highly NOT recommend ever stepping inside it. It's absolutely outdated, dirty and disgusting. Our room had a sink that literally leaked all over the floor. Try to brush your teeth without stepping on your spit pooling around your feet. The rooms have not been renovated since 1986. All regular...

    Stockholm Transportation

    From Stockholm, the Connex railway offers transportation to Narvik, Norway via Boden and Kiruna. This train also stops right at the lovely Abisko National Park, north of the Arctic Circle. Through June 2013, there is one direct overnight train per day to Narvik from Stockholm (departing Stockholm at 5:58 PM), and another with a connection in Boden...

  • Stockholm Card

    Stockholm Transportation

    There are two cards in Stockholm. One is the Stockholm card, managed by the Stockholm Visitors Board and the other is the SL travel card. Both are available for shorter time as well. The SL card is only a public transportation card, while the Stockholm Card also allows free entrance to 80 museums and other venues. The entrance to Skansen and Vasa...

  • Flying

    Stockholm Transportation

    Many budget airlines, such as Ryanair and Wizzair use the airport Skavsta as their gateway to Stockholm. Skavsta is actually located near the city of Nyköping, approximately 100 km southwest of Stockholm. In October 2013 I flew for the first time of my life with Ryanair from Weeze in Germany to Skavsta. The price for the return flight of 82 Euro...

  • Taxis

    Stockholm Transportation

    My landlady in Stockholm recommended this line: TAXI STOCKHOLM 15 00 00 You can order one online, there is a n English-language site (most everyone speaks English there anyway) The site says it's a fixed price from Arlanda airport to the city - 520 SEK Twice as expensive as the Arlanda express train - but if you are three or more, thing look...

  • General Information

    Stockholm Transportation

    The Economist came up with the news yesterday what most people already know – that Sweden is generally safe, it’s capital is safe, and its roads are safe. They put the stress on planning as the key factor. Besides, Sweden is considered a rich country and can afford doing what it considers right for its people’s well-being, but poor countries have...

    Stockholm Transportation

    The Hop on Hop Off busses are great way to get around the city. Stockholm being on 14 Islands can be a lot to walk around so I found that by taking the Hop on and off bus first I really figured out what I wanted to see the most. The pass is good for 24 hours. It is double decker bus so nice for photos in good weather.

  • Historic Tram Line

    Stockholm Transportation

    Going from Norrmalmstorg to Djurgarden you can use the museum tram line, Djurgardslinjen. On a normal public transportation pass you go by an old tram from the town out on the Djurgarden island. When you get to Djurgarden I would recommend a visit on Skansen and Grona Lund.

  • Walking

    Stockholm Transportation

    Stockholm is very large city, but in general you can walk almost everywhere in the centre of Stockholm to most major sites, the old city, the centre and the nightlife area. Just have good shoes with you, the old streets are made of stones and not easy to walk with a high heels :)

    I can't speak from personal experience - only having viewed this from the ground - but there aren't many cities in the world you can get as close to in a Hot Air Balloon. There seems to be a huge number that float across at Sunset.

  • Rental Car

    Stockholm Transportation

    Driving is generally not a good idea to do in Stockholm but sure, there are worse places. It is just that parking is terribly expensive and hard to find, and as I have mentioned in another tip, there is no ring road, so the infamous Essingeleden takes a lot of heavy E4 traffic right through the city even though much of it isn't even bound for...

  • Central station.

    The central station in Stockholm city is the main place for travelling. Here goes the most people through the day, both locals and tourists. This is a travelling point for many people, which also means a dangerous place at night and many things to do during the day. You find many fast food places here, you can surf at internet cafés, store your...
