How to get to the convention from Stockholm Central Station

By taxi

The taxi area is located right outside the main entrance of Stockholm Central Station at Vasagatan (name of the street). At this taxi area only approved taxis with metered fares are allowed to pick up passengers. Approved taxis always bear yellow number plates.


There is also a manned taxi center at Central Station that can help you with finding the right service if you need something special.


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 left corner of the image), which is usually on the rear door window, before entering the vehicle. The highest unit price of most taxis is between SEK 290–390 (kr).


The price on the yellow label is based on a 10 km, a 15-minute journey. The price indicated on the taximeter is in Swedish kronor. In addition to the major taxi companies, there are several independent firms; caution is adviced. Some of the independent taxi firms have been known to charge extreme over prices from tourists.


A reliable taxi company that is allowed to operate outside Stockholm Central Station is Taxi Stockholm:

Other reliable taxi companies are SverigeTaxi and Taxi Kurir (see picture).
