Public Transportation, Stockholm – Transportation

Transportation in Stockholm: Public Transportation

Stockholm is both the most heavily populated city among all the Nordic countries and the capital of Sweden. It’s a well-connected city with a transportation network consisting of trams and buses.


There aren’t an abundance of trams and light rail lines, but Tram Heritage Route 7 is very useful. It starts from T-Centralen and goes to Djurgården. This is a great line for tourists, since it connects people to the Gröna Lund, Vasa, Nordic Museum, and Abba Museet. If you’re visiting, this is a great line to ride if you want to see the city.


If you don’t plan to get a Stockholm Card, which allows you travel above ground on the trams and buses, then consider heading below ground. There, you can get a day pass for the subway station. Remember to have Swedish Krone with you because they don’t accept any other currency and your credit card will not work there.


Stockholm’s bus network consists of blue and red buses, which cover routes between the metro station and to the city’s suburbs. Tickets can’t be bought from the driver, but instead have to be bought in advance from kiosks you can find around the city. Money can also be loaded on the electronic SL access card. A particularly useful bus service for tourists is the Number 69 route, which stops near the TV-Tower Kaknastornet and also leads along the popular Djurgarden district.
