Stockholm's Arlanda International Airport is 42 km (26 miles) from the city center; a freeway links the city and airport. Travel between Arlanda International Airport and Stockholm is fastest using the Arlanda Express, a high-speed train service. The yellow-nose train leaves every 15 minutes (every 10 minutes during peak hours), travels at a speed of 200 kph (125 mph), and completes the trip from the airport to Stockholm's central station in 20 minutes; single tickets cost SKr 260.

Flygbussarna (airport buses) leave both the international and domestic terminals every 10–15 minutes from 6:30 am to 11 pm, and make a number of stops on the way to their final destination at the Cityterminalen at Klarabergsviadukten, next to the central railway station. The trip costs SKr 99 and takes about 40 minutes. A bus-taxi combination package is available. The bus lets you off by the taxi stand at Haga Forum, Järva Krog, or Cityterminalen and you present your receipt to the taxi driver, who takes you to your final destination. A trip will cost between SKr 200 and SKr 300, depending on your destination. Swebus goes directly to the airport, has free Wi-Fi on board, and costs SKr 99 one-way.

For taxis be sure to ask about a fast pris (fixed price) between Arlanda and the city. It should be between SKr 490 and SKr 600, to a destination near the center of town. The best bets for cabs are Taxi Stockholm, Taxi 020, and Taxi Kurir. All major taxi companies accept credit cards. Watch out for unregistered cabs, which charge high rates and won't provide the same service.
