Most transportation within Stockholm utilizes the Metro public transportation system (rail, bus, and ferry) and taxi service. Public transportation is especially convenient once you are inside the city of Stockholm. Parking and traffic flow within Stockholm can be problematic - especially for newcomers. Public transportation and taxi service are recommended for visitors to the city. This page has been updated to provide general information on how to get around Stockholm in addition on how to get to our offices.

Metro Connections and Fares

The Stockholm Metro comprises all public transportation within Stockholm Län (Stockholm County). This includes Pendeltåg (commuter rail), Tunnelbanan (underground/subway), Buss (bus), and several inner city ferries (make sure there is a metro logo in order to use metro tickets and passes). Metro transportation is identified by "T", "J", "BussLink", or "SL" logos at the station entrances and ticket counters.

Intercity rail and coach service connects to the Stockholm Metro hub at Stockholm Centrum (Sergels Torg) formed by the Stockholm Central Station (rail), Cityterminalen (intercity bus and airport coach), and T-Centralen (tunnelbanan) stations. All three stations are connected by underground walkways and are within a short five minute walk of each other. There are taxi stands located by each station. Currency exchange bureaus are located in the Central Station.

Metro passes may be purchased from any Pressbyrån shop (located at all rail stations). Metro coupons may be purchased from the SL ticket counters and automatic machines (although some accept paper Swedish currency and credit cards, many only accept Swedish coins). Metro coupons are only valid for travel within Stockholm County (which includes Farsta Strand) and are valid for a single one-way journey.

Metro Coupons
Minimum fare is two coupons and the maximum fare is five coupons.
Metro transportation between Stockholm Centrum (Zone 1) and Farsta Strand (Zone 2) requires three coupons each way. Coupons can be used on mixed transportation (i.e. you may combine rail, bus, and ferry service on one trip) and are valid for a single one-way trip for up to 1-Hour. Coupons must be stamped (validated) at the beginning of each trip. Coupons may be purchased from bus drivers and SL ticket counters.

Buss (Public Bus) - Metro

The public bus system in Stockholm is extensive. Metro transportation maps are available at the SL information centers located in the the Central Station and in T-Centralen. There are no direct busses from Stockholm Centrum to Farsta Centrum or Farsta Strand. If you take the Tunnelbanan to Farsta Centrum, there are four busses that will take you to the Morgana Hotel and Auldenfire Offices:
Take bus 184, 828, 830, or 831 to the Edsvallabacken stop from Farsta Centrum. Busses 830 and 831 are the quickest (about five minutes).
Tickets may be purchased with credit card or Swedish currency from the ticket counters and automatic ticket machines. Tickets may also be purchased from the bus driver with Swedish currency (drivers do not carry large amounts of change).

Taxi

There are a number of taxi companies operating in Stockholm, Taxi Kurir and Stockholm Transfer typically provide the best fares (from our experience). Whenever you use a taxi, make sure that you ask about the fare before the driver departs for your destination. If you call a taxi by telephone, have the operator quote you a price to your destination and verify the quoted price with the driver. Both Taxi Kurir and Stockholm Transfer offer fixed rate fares within the Stockholm area. Meter fares can sometimes be cheaper for short trips of under 500 m to 1 km; however, if you run into traffic, the fixed fare savings can quickly add up. Traffic tends to get congested in the inner city and during commuter hours - especially on the highways and bridges connecting north and south Stockholm. There are numerous taxi stands located throughout the city and you can order a taxi by telephone (most business establishments will order one for you upon request):

Taxi Kurir
Telephone: +46 (0)8 30 00 00

Stockholm Transfer
Telephone: +46 (0)8 33 20 00

The following two companies are reliable and readily available in Stockholm, but typically charge slightly higher fares (they also only provide limited fixed fare service):

Taxi Stockholm (Only offers limited fixed fares)
Telephone: +46 (0)8 15 00 00

Taxi 020 (Only offers limited fixed fares)
Telephone: +46 (0)20 93 93 93

When picking up a taxi at a taxi stand, you are not required to choose the first taxi in line - you may choose the taxi company that you want to use. Taxi Kurir and Stockholm Transfer will typically provide the lowest fares (We also recommend these two companies within the Stockholm area). All four companies have large taxi fleets and can provide reasonable response times when called by telephone (usually about five to ten minutes).

Never use an unlicensed taxi (taxi is not properly marked or the driver's taxi license is not displayed in plain sight - legitimate taxis have a yellow license plate with black numbers/letters and have taxi company logos painted on the car). A number of "black" taxis operate in Stockholm, some of which have been known to rob their fares at gun point and leave them stranded.
Taxi fares may be paid with credit card or Swedish currency.
