Public transportation

Swedes use their public transportation frequently. There are various types of coupons according to each city's bus, metro or tram system. These are usually bought in kiosks, information centres or an app.


Stockholm has an extensive network of underground trains (T-bana), commuter trains and buses. Vintage trams operate from the city centre to Djurgården island during the summer. Underground station entrances are marked with a blue T on a white background.
