Stockholm is a well connected city, making travel into and around the Swedish capital quick and easy.
Visitors arriving at Stockholm's airports have a choice of local trains or buses or the dedicated Flygbussarna airport bus service. Arrivals at Arlanda Airport have the extra option of the Arlanda Express, a fast direct link to Stockholm Central railway station. Regional and national services depart from here, as well as services to other Scandinavian countries. Several rail lines pass stop at Arlanda as well.
Public transport in Stockholm is renowned for being clean, comfortable and efficient. The city is divided into three zones. You can purchase single journey tickets or travel passes valid for one, three, or seven days. The one-, two-, or three-day Stockholm Card offers free or discounted access to many of the city's museums and attractions, as well as unlimited use of public transport.
Busses, rail and ferries in Stockholm
A large bus network not only operates in the city centre, but also in suburban areas. These are also served by local and light rail. Stockholm's Metro has three lines, red, green, and blue, and a tramway is in operation, running older trams on a heritage line as well as more modern vehicles. The ferries that serve the islands in the Stockholm Archipelago also form part of the public transport system and are used by both commuters and tourists.
In warmer weather, using a Stockholm City Bike is a great way to get around. A prepaid bike card gives you access to bicycles from a number of cycle racks throughout the city. Hire one for up to three hours at a time, giving you the freedom to explore back roads and stop for a coffee break and take photographs and return the bike at any station before taking off again.
