Life as a student at Stockholm Business School

Getting Around the City: 3/4

Dearest readers,

Now that I’ve covered the T-Bana (Subway/Metro) and buses available here in Stockholm city, how much does it all cost me , you ask?

Here are the fares for using these forms of transit, brought you to by none other than SL, the transportation system themselves.

Things to take note of:

  • As someone who is going to be traveling multiple times a day, everyday: you’re going to want to purchase an Access Card (additional one-time 20kr fee, just FYI).
  • As a student, with your Mecenat card or a membership card from Stockholm University’s Student Union (can also be shown if you log in via their Apps), you are able to prove that you are currently enrolled and studying, thereby granting you permission to purchase a reduced-fare card for either 560kr (Monthly) or 1540kr (3 Months). 
  • Where to buy your Student Travelcard

    The Student Travelcard is available from:

    -All major SL ticket agents, such as Pressbyrån.
    -SL Access ticket machines at Metro and commuter rail stations.
    -SL Center at T-Centralen, Central station, Fridhemsplan, Gullmarsplan, Slussen and Tekniska högskolan (KTH).
    -All major commuter rail stations at the ticket barrier office.
    -Online at the web shop on the Swedish section of this site.

    Also! Since you do not need to show student ID when buying the reduced-fare Access Card, this technically means that anyone off the street can do so- BUT if caught upon the rare ticket inspections, you will likely have to pay a fee!

  • Link your card with your Swedish personnummer if you have one, so that you can be reimbursed and protected if your card gets lost or stolen.

So, what does an Access Card look like anyways, you ask?
