  T for Tunnelbana
by wadekorzan

It is easy to recognize subway stops because they are all marked with a big "T". T stands for "Tunnelbana" or "tunnel railway". Almost all lines converge at some point or another at the stop called T-Centralen, located in the heart of Stockholm.

It is important to know that many lines branch off, so you have to make sure the train is actually going to where you need to go. For example, if you are in the heart of the city at T-Centralen and want to go to Medborgarplatsen (the main square of Sodermalm), then any train on the green line will take you there because that stop is before the green line branches off. However, if you want to go further south on the green line, then look to see what stop you need, then look to see what is the last stop along THAT BRANCH of the green line. Then wait for the train that is going to that END stop so that you reach your destination.

In every subway stop, there is a digital sign telling you how many minutes until the next train is coming. If the next train does not follow the branch you need, simply wait a few minutes until the correct train comes. It sounds complicated, but it's not, and if you get confused at all, ask anybody. Everybody speaks English and is very friendly and willing to help.
