Slussen

Transport

Stockholm has excellent public transportation. Buses, commuter trains and the underground will take you just about anywhere.

Public transport

The well developed bus, commuter railway and underground systems allow you to travel throughout the County of Stockholm both conveniently and at a reasonable price. All means of public transport share a unified ticketing system, allowing for transfers. Discount tickets and city cards are also available

Underground

The Stockholm underground Tunnelbana is both safe and easy to use. Stations are all marked with a blue "T" sign. The underground, which has over 100 km of track and about 100 stations, is so creatively decorated, it has been called the world's longest art gallery.

Local trains

In addition to the underground and buses, Stockholms Lokaltrafik (SL), operates commuter trains which serve a much larger region than the underground. From the Central Station you can get to Kungsängen and Märsta in the north-west, and to Nynäshamn and Gnesta in the south-east and south-west, respectively. It takes nine minutes to travel to the Stockholm International Fairs at Älvsjö from the Central Station. Stockholm's commuter railway system also includes the historic Roslagsbanan and the more modern Saltsjöbanan. The Nockebybanan and Lidingöbanan trams serve the southern parts of Bromma and Lidingö, respectively.

Airport buses

Flygbussarna to and from Arlanda Airport and Bromma Airport are available at the City Terminal next to the Central Station. The buses depart for Arlanda, every 5 or 10 minutes. The trip takes 35 minutes. Flygbusstaxi service (bus + taxi to and from the airports) is available 24 hours a day. Flygbusstaxi connects with the right stop and takes you on to your final destination at a fixed, low price. Buy tickets for Flygbussarna and Flygbusstaxi on board the bus.

The airport train, Arlanda Express, available with departures from the Central Station every 15 minutes. The trip takes only 20 minutes. For information, call;
