Local transport

Some information about local transport

The local transport provider is called Västtrafik. On their website – vasttrafik.se – you will find travel and ticket information in English. You can buy single tickets and multiday passes at the airport, at the numerous 7-Eleven or Pressbyrån shops, or you can purchase mobile tickets using the app. Most bus/tram drivers do not sell tickets on-board in Gothenburg, and in fact don’t generally speak to passengers at all.

The easiest way to find directions to and from the university buildings from your hotel, and around the city is to use Västtrafik’s travel planner (available as a downloadable app in English). You can enter the address of your point of departure and destination, and the app will suggest the most suitable route.

Airport transfer

There are two main options available for travelling into the city from Landvetter airport: taking a taxi, which is relatively expensive (expect to pay a minimum of 400kr for a single journey), and by bus (Flygbussarna).

The most convenient way to buy a ticket for Flygbussarna (if you do not already have one) is to do so in advance, via their webshop - https://www.flygbussarna.se/en/landvetter - though you can also buy tickets at the airport, at resellers or on board with a charge card. They cost 95 SEK one way or 185 SEK return. Tickets are typically issued electronically via mobile devices.

The busses depart every 12-15 minutes during the day, and the journey time to the city is approx. 20-30 minutes depending on which stop you are travelling to. The closest stop to the University is KORSVÄGEN, the first stop on the bus’s route into Gothenburg.

Passengers on the airport coaches are also entitled to one ticket for travel within the city, valid for 90 minutes. This ticket is issued by the coach driver only on request, so be sure to speak with him/her if you need to use local transport following the transport.
Please see the website for further information.
