Bus and metro tickets must be purchased in advance. Bus drivers do not sell any tickets on board. Buy tickets at the SL Centers, which are located in the ticket halls of the T-Centralen station at Sergels Torg, at the Stockholm Central Station in the lower hall and at Tekniska Högskolan (KTH). Other ticket agents, like Pressbyrån, have the SL logo clearly displayed.
In addition to the regular single-tickets (75 min), there are also 24h, 72h, and 7/30/90 days travel cards. With a travel card, you can travel as much as you like throughout the county for the duration of the card. Your travel card works for metro, commuter train, buses and even some ferries. Travel cards are generally the best buy for a visitor who plans to use public transport regularly during the stay.
