Local Trains


Arlanda Central Station (Arlanda C) is located in the middle of SkyCity. SkyCity is located between Terminals 4 and 5 at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.


Services include the Uppsala commuter rail, or Upptåget. The Upptåget which goes northwards to Uppsala and Tierp and sometimes Gävle, but also Upplands Väsby, which is a connection point to Stockholm Transport (SL) suburban commuter trains to central Stockholm. This option takes 35 minutes and local transport tickets can be used and bought at the entrance to the station, though you have to pay a station access fee of SEK 60.


IHT Tip: There are also regional trains on the Linköping - Stockholm - Gävle route, which costs SEK 95 (2nd class) to central Stockholm. These trains take 20 minutes, just like the Arlanda Express. This service operates only once every other hour, but frankly, if you are on time there is no reason whatsoever to take Arlanda Express, as the regional train is much cheaper (though not as cheap as local transport).


Long Distance Trains


Long-distance trains from Stockholm operate to points in central Sweden (including Uppsala, Södertälje, Gävle, Hudiksvall, Sundsvall, Östersund, Åre, Borlänge, Falun, Leksand, Mora, Nyköping, Norrköping, Linköping). It is not, however, permitted to use these trains to travel from the airport to central Stockholm.


Long-distance trains depart from the underground Arlanda Central Station (Arlanda C). There, the SJ Railway Company has a travel office where you can buy long-distance train tickets and get information about train times.
