There is several ways to get around in Oslo and here im trying write som hints:

Oslo Airport Gardermoen. You can take the Airport Express (called Flytoget) which takes 19minutes into the City Centre. There is an 50% student discount.

PS!! Buy a ticket before you board the train if you want discount. You can also pay by credit card by pulling your credit card when you board and when you get of.

The price is: 160kr for Adult and 80kr for Students

There is several airport busses going to various places in the City. They are slower than the train, but also little cheaper. Its possible to pay on the bus with cash or credit card.

The price is 130kr Adult or 65kr for Student. 75kr extra if this is at night.

Transport in the City centre.

When you stand outside of the Railway Station just go to "Trafikanten" which is Tourist information with timetables of all the possible public transport in oslo. You can oslo buy oslo pass here.

Subway / Metro.

The subway in Oslo is getting old, but its in good condition and a very large percentage of the trains are on time. All trains are passing the station Jernbanetorget (TranslatedRailway Square) so this might be the best starting point, whith 5mins from Railway and Bus stations.

The trains are unmanned so buy the tickets from the YELLOW boxes standing in the stations. The Fare is 20kr Everywhere inside Oslo each way and 60kr for an 24hour-pass.

Boat. There are several ferries that are leaving from Aker Brygge. They go to different places in the Oslo Fjord (No.. Its not a nice fjord) and Water taxis are leaving for Bygdoy (The place where 5 museums are located close to eachother. Read my reviews).


There is one Central buss station in Oslo, with electronic timetables everywhere and signs on where to go. Its lying around 300meters from the Railway station, so just follow the signs to get there. Be aware that some of the platforms are outside , but follow the signs and you should be find.

Tram. You dont really need the tram in Oslo. Several people i know have been living in Oslo their entire life and taken the tram only a couple of times. Its slow and uncomfortable and you are better off with the buss.

Taxi. You dont want to take the Taxi in Norway. The state reglated fare is 1000kr an hour at daytime or even more at nighttime. If you really need to go somewhere look for drivers standing outside of their cars next to big nightclubs and such. They are the illegal taxi drivers and will do the job alot cheaper (but its still expensive)
