Getting to Copenhagen
Copenhagen airport is very well connected to downtown Copenhagen via the metro and regular trains. It is also possible to take either a bus or a taxi, however, taking a taxi to downtown Copenhagen is up to 8 times as expensive compared to public transportation, and not much faster than taking the metro.
Public Transportation in Copenhagen
The site Journey Planner connects all three major means of public transportation in Copenhagen; metro, trains and buses.
You use the same ticket in the bus, on the train and metro. Tickets can be purchased from ticket offices, from vending machines at stations or from bus drivers. The tickets are stamped with time, date and departure zone. You pay for the number of zones you need, but the minimum fare is for 2 zones and the maximum for 9 (all) zones.
Discount cards are available for 10 journeys within two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight or all zones. It is cheaper per journey to use a discount card than to buy a ticket.
When starting your journey, you must punch the card in a yellow card-clipping machine on the bus or at the station. One clip entitles you to travel within the number of zones printed on the face of the card. Several simultaneous clips extends your period of travel and increase the number of zones you can travel in. You can clip for a maximum of nine zones, which enables you to travel in all zones for a period of two hours.
All discount cards are available from manned stations and from ticket offices. You can buy discount cards for two or three zones from most vending machines at stations.
You must keep tickets and discount cards throughout the journey and present them to ticket inspectors on request.
Validity of tickets and discount cards:
2 – 3 zones: 1 hour
4 – 6 zones: 1 1/2 hours
7 – 8 zones and All (9) zones: 2 hours
