The hydrogen bus in Stockholm - Stockholm

The hydrogen bus in Stockholm

Free and environmentally friendly bus trips Buses Review

In the central of Stockholm you can see this bus. It's driven on hydrogen and the only exhaust fume is pure water. So if you want to get around in Stockholm in a environmentally friendly way, this is a really good choice. Something even better is that those busses are totally free during a test period in 2004.

Arlanda, terminal 4 - Stockholm

Arlanda Airport Flying Review

Arlanda airport is the main Swedish airport with most international and domestic flights.

There are four flight terminals at Arlanda.
Terminal 2 - International flights (BA, Finnair)
Terminal 3 - Domestic flights to smaller airports (Skyways)
Terminal 4 - Domestic flights to larger airports (SAS)
Terminal 5 - International flights

The fastest way to get to and from the airport is with the Arlanda Express train which takes 20 minutes between Stockholm City and the airport.

Arlanda Express

This train leaves every 15 minutes in both directions and a single trip cost 190 SEK (April 2005).

If you are not in such a hurry, you can instead take the busses.

Flygbussarna

The bus leaves outside each terminal, during peak hours every 10 minute. The 40 minute trip to Stockholm cost 89 SEK (November 2003).

If you want to you can also take a taxi, you will find the taxi stand outside each terminal. Make sure that you will get a fixed price, and you shall never pay more than 445 SEK to the central parts of Stockholm. (April 2005) From Stockholm to Arlanda some taxi companies have fixed price.

One taxi company that I can recommend is Metro Taxi +46 8 140 000. The operates in the north part of Stockholm, and with them you can get a fixed price of 350 SEK both from and to Arlanda. (April 2003)

Be aware of the fact that the main Taxi company, Taxi Stockholm (+46 8 150 000) is quite expensive. They take 445 SEK from Arlanda and between 475 SEK and 790 SEK from Stockholm depending on from where you go and how big car you need. (April 2005)

Bromma airport - Stockholm

Bromma airport

Bromma airport - Fly directly to Stockholm city Flying Review

The main airport in the Stockholm area is of course Arlanda. But it's actually one airport much closer to the city, just some kilometers from the city center. The airport is called Bromma, and you can get here with busses from Stockholm Central station (20 minutes) or with taxi.

You can fly to Bromma from international destinations like Brussels, Århust and Copenhagen, and from domestic destinations like Malmö, Göteborg, Ängelholm, Trollhättan;, Visby and Umeå

The museum tramway at Normalmstorg - Stockholm

The museum tramway at Normalmstorg

The Djurgarden tram line Historic Tram Line Review

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.

Cheap trip to Bromma airport Buses Review

If you want to save money on the trip between Stockholm and the Bromma Airport you can use public transportation by taking the SL-bus.

Just outside the terminal building you can find the bus stand for line 110 to Alvik and 152 to Älvsjö. With bus 110 you can change to the green subway line in Alvik and with 152 to the blue subway line in Sundbyberg. Both trips take about 5 minutes and cost 30 SEK. All SL-cards are also valid. This to be compared with the airport coaches who takes 69 SEK for a trip to Stockholm City.

Rissne Subway station - Stockholm

Stockholms Tunnelbana - Subway Tunnelbana (Underground) Review

The subway (Tunnelbanan) is the best way to get around in Stockholm. Around Stockholm there are exactly 100 subway stations on three lines. The subway lines is mentioned by colours and meet eachother at the station T-Centralen (Central Station) in the central of Stockholm.

Blue line
========
Kungsträdgården - Hjulsta
Kungsträdgården - Akalla

Green line
=========
Skarpnäck - Åkeshov
Farsta Strand - Alvik
Hagsätra - Hässelby Strand

Red line
=======
Norsborg - Ropsten
Fruängen - Mörby Centrum

There are two special tourist travel cards:
3 day ticket - 180 SEK
1 day ticket - 95 SEK

In the travel cards it's included travels with Subway, Busses, Local trains, Tram lines and the Djurgården boats.

With the 3 day ticket you also get different kind of special price to tourist attractions, like a free entrance to Gröna Lund and Kaknästornet.

If you are staying longer in Stockholm you can buy a month ticket for 600 SEK.

If buying a single ticket you have to pay for the number of zones that you pass. The subway system is divided in different zones, the cheapest ticket is 30 SEK, and you have to pay 15 SEK more for each zone you pass. So if you are taking more than one trip, avoid buying single tickets, it can become quite expensive.

The Tvärbanan tram to Alvik - Stockholm

The Tvärbanan tram to Alvik

The Tvärbanan tram line

My favourite among the public transportation in Stockholm is the Tvärbanan tram line, running from Alvik to Sickla Udde, passing by Liljeholmen, Gullmarsplan and the Globe Arena.

With this tram line you will get some good view over Stockholm, especially from the bridges near Alvik. From there the view is stunning.

The travel pass for subway and busses are also valid on the tram line. Daytime it's a train in each direction every 10 minute. Just remember that you have to press a button when you want to leave on the next station, else the driver might not stop.

The fastest way to Stockholm Central from Arlanda Airport is by the Arlanda Express train.

The train departure every 15 minute in each direction. A normal single way ticket costs 180 SEK (February 2004).

You can buy tickets in the ticket office at the Central station, from the ticket machines or at the train. If you buy the ticket on the train it will cost 50 SEK extra.
