Practical Information

Directions from Arlanda Airport by public transportation:

Arlanda Airport is well connected to the Central Station (Cityterminalen). You can choose between a 35-40 minutes ride by bus (Flygbussarna) for around 100 SEK, or a 20 minute ride by fast train (Arlanda Express) for more than double that price. Flygbussarna tickets can be bought on the bus with any major credit card (cash is not accepted). Tickets for the Arlanda Express are best purchased from a ticket machine before you board the train. You can buy tickets on the train but they are more expensive. Once you get to Cityterminalen enter the terminal hall and turn to the right, following the signs for the Tunnelbana (a blue T logo). Inside the station you can buy a single ticket (see below) or you can also buy the more convenient SL access card, depending on how long you are staying.

Taking Taxis from Arlanda:

Taking a taxi from Arlanda to anywhere in central Stockholm will cost approximately 500 SEK. All the major (serious!) companies have a fixed Arlanda-Stockholm price. Don't take a ride with one that does not! This price will be posted on the taxi itself. Taxis accept all major credit cards. Some taxi companies are: Stockholm Transfer (+46) (0)20-350000, Taxi Stockholm: (+46) (0)8-150000, Taxi 020: (+46) (0)20-202020, and TaxiKurir: (+46) (0)8-300000.

Getting around in Stockholm:

Stockholm has an extensive public transportation system. If you will need to ride the bus, tunnelbana (subway), or commuter trains for more than a couple of days then buy a plastic access card (20 SEK) from an attendant at the subway station which you can load with money for individual trips (31 SEK each) or a week or month-long pass. If you need only 24 or 72 hours of traveling you can buy a disposable card (these are usually available for sale at convenience stores in or near the subway stations). There is also a free app (SL: Journey planner and tickets) which you can use to plan your journey and buy single tickets. Standard adult fare with an access card is 31 SEK per trip which expires in 75 minutes. If you need a single ticket quickly you can always buy this from the attendant at the station entrance, although this is always the most expensive option. You cannot buy tickets on buses. Taking a taxi anywhere within central Stockholm will cost approximately 200 SEK.

Directions to AlbaNova from T-centralen:

From the tunnelbana station, T-centralen, take the red line in the direction Mörby Centrum and get off at Tekniska Högskolan (three stops). Take the Körsbärsvägen exit from the station and the staircase to your right after you pass through the barriers. You reach the Albanova University Centre in about 10 minute walk or by catching bus 61 just 50m up the street from the tunnelbana entrance and getting off the bus at the Ruddamen stop. The same ticket you used on the tunnelbana will be valid on the bus (if used within 75 minutes).

More information will be available here later.
