This is Stockholm

Modernity meets tranquility. Trend-setting restaurants and vibrant nightclubs next to idyllic archipelago. Welcome to a city where it is easy to breathe – and to feel your pulse.

Taxi

There are many taxi companies to choose from in Stockholm. Approved taxis with metered fares always bear yellow number plates. Credit cards are readily accepted.

NOTE: Taxi prices are not regulated in Sweden; they may vary greatly. It is the customer’s responsibility to check prices beforehand. Check the price on the yellow-and-white label (pictured in the right corner above), which is usually on the rear door window, before entering the vehicle. The highest unit price of most taxis is between SEK 290 - 390.

The price on the yellow label is based on a 10 km, 15-minute journey. The price indicated on the taximeter is in Swedish kronor. For trips to and from Stockholm Arlanda Airport the major taxi companies have fixed prices of between SEK 450-500. Always ask the driver beforehand. In addition to the major taxi companies there are several independent firms; caution is adviced.

You can easily get hold of a taxi by calling a taxi company, hailing one on the street or by taking a one from a rank, e.g. at NK on Hamngatan. There is a manned taxi centre at Central Station that can help you with finding the right service, e.g. if you need child seats in the vehicle.

Several of the big Stockholm taxi companies have a very high proportion of eco-vehicles. A new rota system gives priority to cabs with low carbon emission levels.
