Travelling by Bus for Sweden

In many places buses are the only public transport available and although services are patchy in rural areas, it is possible to get about. Local timetables are on Samtrafiken s website.

Express buses compete with trains and airlines on longer routes. Journey times are longer, but ticket prices are lower and the buses are modern. See Samtrafiken’s Expressbussguiden for routes and times. Some bus companies, such as Swebus Express, do not require prebooking. If one bus is full, another one is laid on.

Many express bus companies arrange special excursions in the tourist season. Contact the tourist information offices for information. Trips are also arranged to the southern Fjallen where there is no train line. Fjallexpressen is one of the operators running ski buses from Stockholm and Gothenburg.
