Traveling by Public Transport
The public transportation system in Stockholm is reliable and fairly
punctual. You can travel by T-banan (the underground), commuter trains
and buses. The SL transportation card for 24 and 72 hours is good for
unlimited travel in the county of Stockholm and can be purchased at
Tourist Information Offices, SL Ticket Offices and Pressbyrån kiosks.
It is also possible to buy a single (or prepaid) ticket at the time of
the journey. The ticket costs SEK 20 and is valid for unlimited travel
during one hour. Underground stations can be identified by signs with a blue T on a white
background. The commuter train stations are just as easily recognized -
a blue J on a white background.
