Single journey tickets
Single journey tickets are ideal if you just make the occasional journey with public transport during your stay in Stockholm. Single journey tickets are available as mobile tickets, from ticket machines, from SL Center and ticket agents, and come in different formats.

You can buy single journey tickets in various ways:

Change before time runs out
With all forms of single journey tickets you can travel as much as you like until the ticket expires after 75 minutes. If your journey involves any interchanges, you have to make the final change before the ticket expires.
The time of validity is printed on tickets from vending machines, and is given in text message/app tickets and in single journey tickets stored on SL Access cards and single use travelcards.
Remember to start your ticket on a blue card reader the first time you travel if using a single use travelcard.
The price of the single journey tickets vary depending on where and how you bought it. If you buy your ticket with SL Access credit (reskassa) you get the lowest price. If you buy your ticket from a conductor onboard tramline 7 or Roslagsbanan you pay the highest price. All other forms of the single fare ticket cost the same.
