Travel to and around Stockholm
Public transport in Stockholm
Subway, suburban trains and busses
All public transport in Stockholm can be accessed by purchasing single tickets or travel cards ("SL-accesskort") at public transport centres ("SL-center"), at all subway stations ("Tunnelbana" marked with a big "T"), at most kiosks or online.
Please note that tickets cannot be purchased on the busses, all tickets must be bought in advance or purchased via your smart-phone.
More information on purchasing tickets and ticket fares: http://sl.se/en/fares--tickets/
All travel routes can easily be planned from the SL-website (Stockholms Lokaltrafik): http://sl.se/en/
*We recommend purchasing a 7-day "SL-accesskort", especially if you are will be staying outside of Stockholm. Price: SEK 300.
You can also rent bikes to travel around the city. City Bikes offers a service that allows you to rent bikes and drop them off at any City Bike-bike stand in Stockholm.
To rent bikes you need a bike card (or you can load the SL-"accesskort" for public transport with money for bike rentals). The bike card can be purchased at City Bike retailors (all 7-Eleven stores, SL-centers and "Pressbyrån" (a Swedish kiosk chain)).
If you already have a bike card or a SL-accesskort, you can refill your cash balance online.
For prices, maps, to buy or refill your bike card and more information please visit the City Bike website: http://www.citybikes.se/home
