Fares from 9 January 2018
The Stockholm County Council Assembly has decided that transport fares in Stockholm County are to increase by 3.3 percent as of 9 January 2018.
The increase will be applied to fares on transport services provided by SL, Stockholm Public Transport.
In order to meet the demands of a rapidly growing population in the Stockholm region in the coming years, several major projects and investments are being carried out with the aim of providing a satisfactory standard of public transport to all our current and future travellers.
An example of this is the Stockholm City Line: a six-kilometer-long tunnel with two new stations for commuter trains that was opened in 2017. Such extensions of the public transport network increase the costs of services. These costs are compensated for partly by council taxes and partly by increased revenues from ticket sales.
Fixed fares for single-journey tickets
In 2017, fixed fares were applied to single-journey tickets. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to keep track of zones when travelling within Stockholm County. A fixed fare allows unlimited travel for 75 minutes.
A single-journey ticket can be purchased through the SL smartphone app, at a ticket booth or from a vending machine. It is available as a single-use travel card or as top-up credit on an SL Access card.
