Taking the Västtåg between the central station and Gamlestaden would be very practical for me. Do you have to get a ticket for that?


Yes, you need a ticket. Public transportation in Gothenburg is not free. You can purchase a ticket from a machine at the station, or a manned ticket booth. The machines only take credit/debit cards. A ticket for an adult costs 30 SEK and is valid for 90 minutes on all Västtrafik lines (so train, tram, and bus).

    Did the trip today and indeed you need a ticket for that route just like on the tram. – Mikael Dúi Bolinder Jan 9 '20 at 17:06
  • @MikaelDúiBolinder Why is that surprising? – Tor-Einar Jarnbjo Jan 9 '20 at 18:19
  • @Tor-EinarJarnbjo Arlanda Express offers free rides between the terminals of Arlanda so you never know 😊 – Mikael Dúi Bolinder Jan 9 '20 at 18:41
