There are many taxi companies to choose from in Stockholm. Approved taxis with metered fares always have yellow number plates. Credit cards are readily accepted.

NOTE: Taxi prices are not regulated in Sweden; they may vary greatly. It is the customer’s responsibility to check prices beforehand. Check the price on the yellow-and-white label, which is usually on the rear door window, before entering the vehicle. The highest unit price of most taxis is between SEK 290 – 390.

The price on the yellow label is based on a 10 km, a 15-minute journey. The price indicated on the taximeter is in Swedish kronor. For trips to and from Stockholm Arlanda Airport, the major taxi companies have fixed prices of between SEK 450-500. Always ask the driver beforehand. In addition to the major taxi companies, there are several independent firms; caution is advised.

You can easily get hold of a taxi by calling a taxi company, hailing one on the street or by taking a one from a taxi rank. There is a manned taxi centre at Central Station that can help you with finding the right service, e.g. if you need child seats in the vehicle.

Several of the big Stockholm taxi companies have a very high proportion of eco-vehicles. A new rota system gives priority to cabs with low carbon emission levels.

Boats and ferries

Travelling by local ferries is a fantastic way to experience a city built on islands. Ferries are used by both commuters and tourists wanting to take a better look around. 

There is a ferry in Ekerö Center that goes to the Town Hall in the middle of Stockholm. This ferry is run by the bus company and daily or weekly tickets for the bus are also valid on this ferry. You can find a map and timetable here.

There are ample ferry departures from Nybroviken and Slussen in the city centre out to the leafy island of Djurgården and Hammarby Sjöstad. An SL Card includes the ferries from Slussen and you can also buy single tickets on the quay. There are ferries from Drottningholm castle on Ekerö which during the spring to fall months go to the city centre. Tickets can be purchased on board. Strömma Kanalbolaget

To and from the airport

If you are travelling to Stockholm by plane and are landing at Arlanda you can take an express train to the city centre Arlanda Express.  Alternatively you can take one of the Flygbussarna buss’s which are specifically for people travelling between the airport and main towns and the city centre. This is especially a good service as this connects with Brommaplan from where you can get a direct bus to the house or a taxi. If you are arriving at Bromma, Skavsta or Västerås you can also take one of these busses.
