Travel information

From Stockholm Arlanda Airport

Arlanda airport (code ARN) is about 30 km from Uppsala. The most convenient way to come to Uppsala is to take the train Upptåget (20 min) or bus number 801 (bus stop number 13 at the exit of the terminal, takes 45 min).

Upptåget: Train Arlanda airport -> Uppsala central station: every half hour at 27 and 57 minutes past the hour. First train at 5:27am, last train at 23:57. It leaves from SkyCity (lobby between terminals 5 and 4). It takes 20 mins and it costs 130 SEK. Tickets are bought in the counter or in the vending machines in the lobby, before going down to the piers. Note that SJ also has trains from the airport to Uppsala and tickets for Upptåget are NOT valid on SJ trains and vice versa.

Bus 801 Arlanda airport -> Uppsala central station: every half hour, at 16 and 46 minutes past the hour from Terminal 5, the starting point. Add 3 minutes if you arrive to terminal 4, and 5 minutes for terminals 2 and 3. The ticket costs 100 SEK and can be bought from the driver.

NOTE: Do not follow the Arlanda Express signs. These are for the express train to Stockholm only.

Taxi: Found at the exit of the terminals. Price about 500 SEK.

Getting to and from the pre-meetings and the MANTS meeting at the Ångström laboratory

The quickest way to get to the Ångström laboratory is by city bus 20 which leaves from the Central station (bus stop A1) and takes about 8-10 min. Inside the bus, there is a sign displaying the next upcoming stop. The stop right outside Ångström is called "Polacksbacken". It is good to know that the display also will show the word "Stannar", which means a stop has been requested.

Note that you can NOT pay cash on the bus, tickets need to be purchased before you get on. You can get tickets at UL Center located inside the Central station and you need to get a ticket for you return journey as well, since you can't get tickets at Ångström. If you have a swedish phone you can get your ticket via SMS by texting "UV" (without the quotes) to number 72472 (this needs to be done before getting on the bus).

If you prefer to walk, it takes about 35 minutes from the central station. See http://g.co/maps/hp9j for directions.
