Stockholm is situated at the heart of Scandinavia, and most of Europe is reachable within three hours. Thanks to Stockholm’s safe, punctual and efficient public transport system, visitors can quickly travel between different locations.

Public Transportation

Stockholm Public Transport, SL, is responsible for buses, underground trains, commuter trains, trams and certain ferry lines in Greater Stockholm.

The underground is the easiest way to get around town. The city is divided into three zones, and zone tickets are good for several trips within 75 to 120 minutes. Tickets can be purchased at SL Centers, underground platform barriers, newsagent kiosks, via SMS or via the SL app. It's not possible to pay cash for tickets on board buses in Stockholm.

Prepaid cards are the best alternative for those making few trips. It's also possible to buy 24, 72 hour or 7-day cards, which allow free travel in all zones during the validity period.

Stockholmers are always heedful of their beautiful surroundings, and this has led to many inner city buses running on eco-friendly fuels such as ethanol. The Stockholm underground is also known as the worlds longest art gallery as so many of its stations are adorned with the works of different artists.


There are many taxi companies to choose from in Stockholm. Approved taxis with metered fares always bear yellow number plates. Credit cards are readily accepted.

Taxi prices are not regulated in Sweden; they may vary greatly. It is the customer’s responsibility to check prices beforehand. Check the price on the yellow-and-white label (as per the picture below), which is usually on the rear door window, before entering the vehicle.

The price indicated on the taximeter is in Swedish kronor. For trips to and from Stockholm Arlanda Airport the major taxi companies have fixed prices of between SEK 550-600. Always ask the driver beforehand.
