Domestic travel and public transport

The extensive spread of the new coronavirus means that the situation for travellers and commuters can change quickly. Here is some information about what you need to consider before making a journey. You have a personal responsibility to follow the situation in order to make informed decisions.

For travel in Sweden, you should avoid crowds, rush hour traffic, public transport without booking a place, and avoid meeting new people other than those you normally spend time with. You should also be able to isolate yourself at your destination and get home in a way that does not increase the risk of infecting others if you should get symptoms of Covid-19.

Masks are recommended in public transport on weekdays between 7-9am and 4-6pm. Special recommendations in some Regions suggest masks should always be carried in public transport.

For long-haul buses and trains, i. e. those going150 kilometres or more, the number of passengers cannot exceed half of the seats available. 

Check with the Region for special recommendations applying at your destination.
