Copenhagen Denmark Public transport

 

Historical city center, destined for pedestrian, sightseeing and quiet wandering along the city's innumerable entertainment and shopping options, enjoys rather favourable transport situation. But growing suburbs increased need in commuter transportation, and the so-called five-finger suburban connection layout was elaborated in 1970 to improve the system.

All public transport operates on a zone system. Copenhagen Card for 24 or 72 hours provides entry to all public transport means. S-Tog regional train network is the chief transportation system, interconnecting suburban areas. Two metro lines, running to the southern suburbs, were added recently. Buses travel to destinations outside the train network. S-tog is very convenient and affordable means of getting to remote metropolitan areas, but due to infrastructure, undergoing considerable restorations, it functions with frequent delays and cancellations.

The metro in Copenhagen, opened in 2001, is clean, fast and efficient, but has a limited number of stations. Taxis are abundant throughout the city, but the wait to get one can be long on a Friday or Saturday night. They can be hailed on the streets, called on definite address, or picked at major transport junctions where they queue up in a line. Among the biggest taxi companies are Amager-Obro, Autolux A/S, Dam's Limousine & Minibusser, Codan Taxi, TaxaMotor, Taxa Selandia, Taxinord.

The cheapest and the most flexible way of seeing Copenhagen is on bike. Riding through historical centre in a fine weather is also very enjoyable. 40% of locals use their bikes every day. The city has separate cycling tracks along main roads. It is required to follow them, because riding on the road outside indicated track can result in high fine.

In the center of the city there are free public bikes, which can be rented at major train stations, parks, ports and some other. These bikes are very simple and not that comfortable. The traveler should insert a coin and then take the bike. The vehicle may be returned not necessarily at the same station, but it can be used only within the limits indicated on the given plan. City bikes became one of the city's specific recognizable landmarks, as double-deckers in London did.

Boats are a great way of sightseeing. Daily ticket permits using them any time and in any place. Numerous boats circuit between the islands, allowing to see Trekroner, Christiania and many other places.
