With a travelcard, you can travel as much as you like throughout the county for the duration of the card. Travelcards are generally the best buy for a visitor who plans to use public transport regularly during the stay.
|Travelcards||Full price (SEK)||Reduced price (SEK)
If you don't have an SL Access smart card already, there will be an extra 20 SEK fee for the card itself. You can re-use an SL Access card that you have obtained at a previous visit.
7 days travelcards, and travelcards for longer periods of time, are valid from 00.00 on the first day of validity until 04.30 on the day after the travelcard expires. The 24 hour and 72 hour travelcards are valid for the chosen number of hours from the time of first use.
Travelcards are transferable and can be used by several travellers, but only one at a time.
All travelcards are valid for travel on the Djurgården ferries between Slussen and Djurgården (operated by Waxholmbolaget).
Zone tickets are ideal if you just make the occasional journey with public transport during your stay in Stockholm. Zone tickets are available from SL Access ticket machines and from SL Center and ticket agents, and come in different types.
The SL area is divided into three zones: A, B and C. You can buy single zone tickets for travel in one, two or three zones from our ticket machines and via Text-me-a-ticket (a text message ticket to your mobile phone). Some zone tickets are made up of coupons.
Change before time runs out
What all types of zone tickets have in common are that you can travel as much as you like until the ticket expires. The ticket is valid for travel in the number of zones you have paid for. If your journey involves any interchanges, you have to make the final change before the ticket expires.
The period of validity is printed on tickets from vending machines, and is given in text message tickets and in zone tickets stored on SL Access cards. Using coupon zone tickets (such as the pre-paid strip) that are stamped, the ticket is valid for one hour from the first time stamp. However, zone tickets that have been purchased for travel in all three zones are valid for two hours from the time of purchase.
Choose the right zone ticket for you
Prices vary, where a pre-paid ticket is cheaper than one bought at the ticket barrier. Note that you cannot purchase a ticket onboard the buses.
