Public Transport in Gothenburg (Västtrafik)

You cannot buy tickets from the driver on public transport in Gothenburg. Instead you need to buy your ticket from newsagents such as Pressbyrån, 7-Eleven or anywhere displaying the Västtrafik sign. You will find several different points of sale at the Central station.

If you are going to be doing a lot of travelling, then buying a short-term top-up card is the best option. This card enables you to travel wherever you want within specified areas, and as much as you want, within one or three 24-hour periods. They are valid on all Västtrafik vehicles, including all trains except the X2000.
Have a look at the webpage for further information.
