With the public transport in Copenhagen you have a choice of buses, the Metro, S Trains, trains, harbour bus and taxis.
The public transport in Copenhagen is among the most reliable and efficient in the world.
As a general rule you can use the same ticket on the different form of transport. Like for instance you can travel on the Metro and continue your journey on an S-train or bus with the same ticket.
If you travel a lot with public transport it is worth buying a 10 trip ticket called (klippekort) available at train stations and newsagencies, a 24 hour ticket or a CPH Card (Copenhagen Card) which will give you free access to over 60 attractions and discounts at various other places in Copenhagenand free Public transport as well, the CHP Card is available as a 24 hour or 72 hour card.
The CPH Card is something that I can highly recommend buying as a tourist staying in Copenhagen for a couple of days. The CPH Card is available at the tourist Information in Copenhagen or online, just click here.
If you buy your CHP Card online, please allow for 10-12 days delivery.
Tickets for the Metro and S-Trains are available inside the bus/train stations at the ticket machines.
Tickets for the busses can be purchased with the driver, please have coins handy.
The Metro in Copenhagen was opened for the first time in 2002 and is the fastest public transport between Copenhagen Airport and Copenhagen city center (Kongens Nytorv), the ride takes 14 min only.
A little warning, make sure you hold on to something as soon you get on to the Train, it starts up pretty quick.
But if you need to get to the central train station in Copenhagen, to continue your journey to another place in Denmark, you will need to take the train from the airport, the Metro does not go to the central station.
If you would like more information about ticket prices, tickets, travel time or any other information about the Metro visit Copenhagen Metro.
The S-trains cover most of Copenhagen and the northern part of Zealand and are a good transport option.
They run from 5 am to 12.30 am on weekdays and Sundays, 24 hours on Fridays and Saturdays and the first Sunday every month you can ride with the S-train for free.
You can bring your pram or bike on the S-train and kids under the age of 12 years ride free if they travel with their parents.
The S-train is the most used Public transport in Copenhagen.
There are over 100 CityBike parking stations in Copenhagen where you can pick up a bike for a 20.- DKK deposit, when you return your bike to a CityBike parking station you will get your monies back.
A lot of local people in Copenhagen get to work and around town on a bike, and now the tourists can too, there are no hills, there are plenty of bicycle lanes around town and most of them even with their own traffic lights and you will get a bit of exercise at the same time and a bike can be quicker than busses and cars in a lot of cases.
