There are many buses in Copenhagen. A-buses (for example 1A, 2A, 3A etc.) run frequently and have many stops in the city. S-buses (for example 350S) run less frequently and have fewer stops, so you get through the city faster.

You can see the timetables for the buses on the Danish website, but it is easier to plan your journey using Journeyplanner.

There are also three harbour buses that sail across and along the harbour. They have the same ticket system as the rest of the public transport system in Copenhagen.

The Metro

Copenhagen Metro has two lines, M1 and M2. The Metro runs underground and is an efficient means of transport. You can find ticket prices and a map of the stops on the Metro website.

Metroselskabet is building new Metro lines and Metro stations all over the city that will open in 2019.


These trains run in the Greater Copenhagen area. S-trains run frequently and stop at many stations. The trains are named with letters (for example line A, line B, line H etc.) and you can recognize them by their red colour. You can locate the train stations by the big, red S signs.

You can find your journey and price at DSB's website or the Journeyplanner.

Long-distance trains

Long-distance or intercity-trains are trains that run across Denmark. These trains can either be high-speed trains or regional trains.

If you are going to travel to other parts of Denmark on a long-distance train, it is a good idea to use Journeyplanner to plan your journey.

You can also travel to Sweden on a long-distance train from Copenhagen.


In addition to this Copenhagen also has the ‘Bycyklen’ service. Bycyklen are bikes that you can rent around Copenhagen, and you can rent a bike from one Bycyklen docking station and return it to a different station.

The bikes are fitted with an electric motor and a GPS.

The price for renting a bike from Bycyklen is DDK 30 per hour, but it is cheaper if you buy a monthly subscription.

Find more information at the English website of Bycyklen.
