Use Text-me-a-ticket if you don't have a travelcard or another prepaid ticket and need a ticket fast. Swedish SIM card necessary.
If you want to buy a text message ticket, you send a text message to 076 720 10 10. Works for you who have registered for the service at sl.klarna.se (only in Swedish for the time being).
- Text VUX if you pay adult fare, SEK 43.
- Text RAB if you pay the reduced fare, SEK 29.
You pay adult fare if you are between 20 and 64 years old. You pay the discounted fare if you are over 65 years of age, a student holding a Swedish student identity card with the SL logotype, or if you are under 20 years of age.
To use the Text-me-a-ticket service you need a Swedish SIM card, as well as register your phone number and sign up for a method of payment in advance. You can pay with a bank card or with a monthly bill (available to Swedis citizens).
There is a quick-registration service available for those with a Swedish personal ID number ("personnummer"). To use that, just text your ticket code to 076 720 10 10 and you will get a registration form in return.
