Travel within Gothenburg
In Gothenburg, almost everything is within walking distance. Thanks to the favourable location of the meeting venues, most delegates can walk from their hotel to the meeting venue or take advantage of the extensive and reliable public transportation system. There are virtually no traffic jams in Gothenburg.
It is easy to get around by the well organised public transport network that consists of trams, buses, ferries and even some trains. When transfering, the same ticket is used. A total of 12 tram routes and 24 bus routes pass through the city centre from early in the morning until late at night. During rush hour, (morning and afternoon) trams and buses leave every 5-10 minutes. Frequency during office hours is every 10-20 minutes. Night traffic is somewhat scaled down but buses and trams passes the city centre every 15 or 30 minutes until 2 am Sunday-Thursday and until 4 am Friday-Saturday.
Timetables are available in centrally located ticket offices around the city or on the city’s public transport company Västtrafik’s website (www.vasttrafik.se) which also contains an easy-to-use journey planner. City centred stops feature a computer screen showing upcoming trips.
