How do you get to and from Arlanda Airport? Are there busses, trains or even flights connecting Arlanda with Stockholm? Is it possible to take a taxi to Stockholm?

    Hi. I downvoted this question since it doesn't show any prior research. If you actually did some research prior to asking, you may include it in the question. – Revetahw Aug 20 '17 at 17:45

    You can actually stay indoors all the trip between Stockholm and London if you choose a way that is indoors all the way. – Niklas Rosencrantz Aug 20 '17 at 18:23

Yes, there are several options.

  • Taxi: There are always taxis available outside the terminals. A ride to the city center is about 500 SEK (approximately 50 EUR). The ride takes 30-60 minutes depending on the amount of traffic.
  • Flygbussarna (airport coaches). Has several routes depending on what part of Stockholm you're going to. A single ticket from Arlanda to Stockholm city is 99 SEK (approximately 10 EUR). The ride takes 50-60 minutes.
  • Public transport in Stockholm (1): You can take a bus to Märsta, followed by a regular commuter train to Stockholm City. Note that if you buy e.g. a 72-hour ticket for unlimited travel in Stockholm, going to Stockholm City this way is included. It also takes the longest time, 75 - 90 minutes depending on the connections.
  • Public transport in Stockholm (2): You can pay to access the commuter trains immediately at Arlanda. This costs 150 SEK (approximately 15 EUR) for a single ticket including passage, and the ride takes 40 minutes.
  • Arlanda Express, a train departing up to six times per hour. An adult ticket is 280 SEK (approximately 28 EUR). The ride takes 20 minutes.

    Worth noting that the Flygbussarna are rather nicer than average for airport buses: they’re typically clean, well-maintained, and have reliable wi-fi. Indeed, Stockholm public transport is generally pretty nice. – PLL Aug 20 '17 at 16:46

    Jesus Christ, the local train access fee's gone up by 47% since I last visited my hometown! Good thing that minors are exempt - and if you look young and confidently state you're 16-17, they'll usually let you through no questions asked (so far without exception for me). Also the entrance is unstaffed and the gates open between midnight and 6AM – Crazydre Aug 20 '17 at 17:07

    @HenricF And allegedly the fee was "temporarily" introduced (with the launch of Upptaaget from Väsby) to pay off the debts stemming from the construction of Arlandabanan. Been over a decade now and they only keep raising it... – Crazydre Aug 20 '17 at 18:40

    @HenricF "Politiker i landstinget anser att det blir dyrt och leder till ökad biltrafik" You don't say...if not for me being able to lie at the station gate I honestly don't know how I'd travel to/from the airport. Via Märsta it takes far too long. – Crazydre Aug 21 '17 at 8:48

    Note that taxi prices in Sweden are not regulated, so the can charge however much they want. Check the price before going, or use one of the large firms (and watch out others with deceptively similar names. – Tor Klingberg Aug 21 '17 at 9:35

The information on wikipedia's page on Arlanda is good. In short: there are buses, commuter trains and high speed trains.
