The public transport infrastructure of Copenhagen is among the most efficient and reliable in the world, and it is still being developed and improved. Public transport will get you anywhere you wish to go in the capital region.
Public transport in Copenhagen consists of metro, bus (including waterbuses) and rail networks. For all modes of public transport, tickets must be bought before boarding and can be purchased at ticket machines, which accept cash and cards, or kiosks within the transport hubs. Tickets bought for one mode of transport are valid for the others including the harbour bus, so if you’re planning a journey that involves multiple modes of transport, there’s no need to buy more than one ticket.
Be sure to check the safe travel guidelines available on the official transport operator website.
Our tip: All metro stations in Copenhagen are equipped with elevators or lifts. Most buses and trains are equipped to cater to accessible needs, although if you’re planning on travelling by train contact the DSB Handicap service for more information.
