Transportation

There are several ways to travel to and within Gothenburg. There are trams and buses that will take you to the venues relevant to the conference and hotels in the city centre. Below you will find descriptions and links on how to get around in Gothenburg.

To central Gothenburg from Landvetter airport or City airport in Säve.

Take the bus or a taxi located just outside of the terminal. The bus costs around 90 SEK (ca 40 min) and a taxi will cost around 375 SEK (ca 25 min). We recommend that you choose either Taxi Kurir, Taxi Göteborg (375 SEK) or Minitaxi and ask for a fixed price to Gothenburg City if you want to go by taxi. The bus will stop in the citycenter at Korsvägen, Valand, Kungsportsplatsen and Central Station.
