Sweden Transportation

Local Public Transportation:
Public transportation is a big thing in Sweden and you can expect to go most everywhere with it. All towns have local or regional bus services; those on railway lines also have commuter trains. Gothenburg and Norrköping have trams and Stockholm also a subway system with 100+ stations. All airports are serviced by some sort of public transportation - at the smallest places it may be a shared van or other form of taxi.

By Air:
Air transportation in S weden is easily accessible from North America. There are five airlines to choose from: Scandinavian Airlines (SAS), Finnair, Icelandair, Delta Airlines and American Airlines. It takes about 8 hours from New York, and discounts are often available. All the European capitals also have flights to Sweden as well. Domestic air carriers in Sweden provide service to larger, as well as smaller, cities in Sweden and Scandinavia. All flights in Sweden are non-smoking.

By Train:
Sweden 's modern railroad network can take you just about anywhere. It is also easy to travel by train from the neighboring Scandinavian countries. InterCity and InterRegion trains have 1st and 2nd class cars, refreshment service and telephones onboard. Special Tickets are available for scenic railroad routes, such as the Wilderness Train, and there are several historic railroads with restored engines and cars.

If you prefer life in the fast lane, the X2000 high speed train between Stockholm and Gothenburg is a must. The trip takes 3 hours on the 125mph train. It is equipped with phones, fax, and even toys for kids.

By Bus:
There are few modes of transportation that match the bus. Sweden 's buses are quiet, comfortable, large cruisers that sweep along between smaller towns where rail and air service are not provided. They also offer an excellent alternative between larger cities, and many European capitals have bus routes into Sweden. Express buses offer children a 50 percent discount at all times, and seniors get the same bargain Mon-Thursday, and Saturday. Youths between 17 and 21 and students get 30 percent off. Bicycles are not accepted.

By Boats:
Sweden 's waterways have long been an inspiration to artists and poets. There is nothing quite like their rugged grace, the way the land and water set each other off. Many of the lakes are chained together by rivers, a natural phenomenon that makes Sweden perfect for boating. Because much of Sweden is surrounded by water, it is possible to cruise to, from, and into Sweden from other Scandinavian and European cities.
