Getting Around

Trains, Busses (including water busses) and the metro operate on a one-fare system, where tickets are valid for all three types of transport with no extra cost for transfer. Bus services are frequent between 5am and 1am, with night buses operating after regular hours. The metro runs from Vanlose Station to Lergravsparken in East Amager, to Orestad in West Amager and to Frederiksberg, operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

A favourite mode of transport for locals and visitors is the bicycle, and Copenhagen has cycle paths and routes along all major streets. Bikes can be rented for around 120 DKK per day, though helmets are not included and cost 40 DKK extra. Bycyklen (the city's bike-share program) costs 1 DKK per minute and has over 130 stations around the city.

Copenhagen is also well supplied with licensed taxis, but traffic is usually congested in the city centre and a car can be a liability rather than an asset. Ride-sharing apps include GoMore and Taxa 4x35.
