To and from the airport

There are a number of airports in the wider Stockholm area, including Arlanda (the largest airport), Skavsta, Västerås and Bromma.

·        There are regular coach services between the airports and Stockholm central station.

·        There is also a fast train service called Arlanda Express, which runs between Arlanda and the central station in Stockholm.

·        The local travel service in Stockholm, SL, also runs travel services to and from some of the airports.

·        Taxis are generally available outside of the airport building, or they can be booked in advance. Arrange a price with the driver in advance. The cost is usually 500-600 SEK for a ride to the city centre thought it can be more depending on the time of day/night.

·        Never take a taxi in Stockholm without having first arranged the price. The market is unregulated and it is not unknown for unsuspecting travelers to pay 100Euro for a short (10km) journey !


Public transport within Stockholm

Stockholm has an excellent integrated public transport system. Stockholm city tickets (SL) are valid on the bus, subway, commuter trains, the tram line, and the intra-city ferry.

You can purchase tickets at local newsagents, eg Pressbyrån,  or at station ticket machines. You can also purchase tickets with the SL app. You cannot buy tickets onboard the buses. Also, not all stations have ticket machines so if you’re in Stockholm it is recommended to purchase an SL Access card from Pressbyrån and preload it with tickets.

A single journey ticket will cost from 31 SEK, though you can add 100-1000 SEK to your SL card. A week long pass costs 325 SEK. If you’re a student or senior, you can purchase your tickets at a reduced price at an SL Center at select stations.
