Getting around in Stockholm

Community Quote

I recently read an opinion on "Getting Around in Stockholm", which contained very little or true information, so decided to write my own. Perhaps not many people will read it, but the opinion I read does nothing to portray the real Stockholm public transport system. Stockholm has one of ... Read review

Probably, 1 of the best transport systems

AdvantagesCheap, lots of stations, mostly reliable

DisadvantagesCan be hard to understand for non-swedes

"...have a valid ticket before getting on the train. It is not easy for the non-Swede to realise this. If you are caught by the inspectors without a ticket, you can face a fine of 600kr. Trams ***** Just a few routes, a total of 35 vehicles carry 40,000 passengers per day. The most interesting is perhaps the Djurgården line, running from Norrmalmstorg to Djurgården (Vasa & Nordic museums, Skansen etc) which operates the old style trams - literally ..." Read review

Efficient, safe and clean

Advantagesclean, efficient

Disadvantagesnone

"The Stockholm underground/metro is called the Tunnelbana (or T-Bana). There are 3 lines across the city, and stations almost on every main street. Stations are clearly marked with a blue T sign. Tickets are comparatively priced, but you can buy a Tourist Card or Stockholm Card for discounted travel. The atmosphere on the trains & at the stations is non-threatening - it is common to see women travelling alone confidently, even late at night. The modern ..." Read review

Metro's pretty good

AdvantagesYou get around

DisadvantagesIt ain't a limo, but what did you expect?

"I went to Stockholm in July 2000 (to run the Marathon there, as it happens). It's a fine city and the metro's just what you need to whizz you about. But, it's not totally obvious how to buy tickets. - There are little ticket booths with probably the most articulate people I have ever seen staffing an underground service. They will sell you what you need. - You can buy strips of (I think it was) 20 in one go BUT an adult ticket costs two stamps, ..." Read review

It's better to use something else

Advantages

Disadvantages

"When you visit Stockholm take your bycicle with you! Stockholm's subway is terrible dirty, smelling urin and infested with parasites. It looks like they never clean and wash the floor there. The trains on the blue and red lines look like they are going to fall apart. The space between seats is so small that the neighbor will always touch your legs with his knees. The ticket system is horrible, especially this long intestines which they call "rabatt ..." Read review
