Getting around in Gothenburg

Tram Tickets

The best way to get around the entire city including getting to the conference center is by tram and bus. By far the easiest solution for visitors is to immediately purchase a three day pass for 140:- at the trolley center at Centralstationen or ``Korsvägen'' or any 7-eleven store and decide whether or not you want to renew it after using it for three days. Do not ride on a tram without a valid ticket; the fines are very severe if you get checked. The driver does not sell tickets and people sometimes find it difficult or impossible to pay with a credit card once they are are on the tram.
