Local transport in Denmark is of a high standard. There are excellent train, metro and bus options within Copenhagen; outside the capital, larger towns have local bus networks and most small towns have bus connections to their regional hub.
Nearly every town in Denmark supports a network of local buses, which circulate around the town centre and also connect it with outlying areas. In smaller towns, the local bus terminal is often adjacent to the train station and/or long-distance bus terminal. Cash fares are around 20kr to 25kr per local ride, but daily travel passes may be useful.
Taxis are generally readily available for hire in city centres, near major shopping centres and at train stations. If you see a taxi with a lit fri sign (or a green light), you can wave it down, or you can phone for a taxi instead – hotels and tourist offices have numbers for local companies.
You can pay by cash or credit card and a tip is included in the fare.
Many Danish train stations have left-luggage lockers (from 20kr for 24 hours).
