Travel within Stockholm

Preamble :

The city’s extensive and well-organized transport infrastructure ranks among the best in Europe. Travel within the city by bus, subway or tram. Or why not take advantage of the fact that Stockholm is built on 14 islands and go by boat?

Travel cards
Travel cards can be purchased or refilled at every train station and/or at Pressbyrån-kiosks.

The public transport company in Greater Stockholm, SL, may offer special rates for larger congresses and events. Please contact us for further assistance.

Please note: Taxi fares in Sweden aren't regulated, which means that prices can vary significantly between companies. With this in mind, we recommend that you use the services of well-known firms like Taxi Stockholm, Sverigetaxi, and Taxi Kurir. Credit cards are readily accepted.

Coach charter
In Stockholm, there are several transport companies that offer customized alternatives for large and small groups. See “find your local partner” to find a coach company that can help you with everything from long journeys and commitments to shorter trips within Stockholm city.

Walk or bike
Stockholm is a compact city, and the best way to explore it is on foot. Grab a map and put on a comfortable pair of shoes. Or do like the locals – hop on a bicycle. It is fast, easy, and green, and you can rent a bicycle for a small fee.
