Malmö

Getting around

Get bus information and buy tickets at the customer service desks in Centralstationen, at Gustav Adolfs Torg and at Värnhemstorget (at the eastern end of Kungsgatan). Local tickets are Skr15 for one hour's travel. The bus hubs are Centralplan (in front of Centralstationen), Gustav Adolfs Torg, Värnhemstorget and Triangeln. Malmökortet includes city bus travel.

Car parking in the city is expensive: typical charges are around Skr15 per hour or Skr90 per day (24 hours). Most hotels also charge for parking. Parking in municipal spaces ('Gatukontoret'; ask the tourist office which symbol to look for) is free with Malmökortet.

Taxi companies in Malmö have a bad reputation for ripping people off: avoid them if you can, or else don't get into any taxi without arranging a fare with the driver in advance. The tourist office recommends Taxi Skåne (33 03 30) and Taxi 97 (97 97 97).

In summer, Rent-A-Bike (0707-49 94 22; www.rent-a-bike.se; per day Skr90) has a handy rental counter inside the tourist office in Centralstationen. Otherwise, try Fridhems Cykelaffär (26 03 35; Tessinsväg 13; per day Skr75) west of the castle, or Cykelkliniken (611 66 66; Regementsgatan 12; per day Skr120).
