"Get around" Skåne Transportation Tip by Sjalen

Skåne Transportation: 6 reviews and 5 photos


Skåne, along with Greater Stockholm, has the best regional transport in Sweden in my opinion. Not surprising since it is a densly populated county and the gateway to the rest of Europe, but it is still impressive. To me, the only problem is the Kulla peninsula where you have to go back to Höganäs to change from the northern to the southern coastline. You can also find Saturday service reduced during school holidays, especially in areas around Simrishamn where more people have their own cars than in the western cities, but at least there ARE buses and/or trains every day to most corners. Click on the link below and then on English in the bottom corner and plan your journey by local trains and buses. Summertime you can also buy a special "summer card" and pay only around SEK 400 for 25 trips anywhere in the county! Look out for these yellow regional buses if you want to hop between the different parts of the region as they make up the backbone of the bus network.
