Getting Around Copenhagen

Copenhagen''s public transport is exceptionally safe, reliable, clean and inexpensive. The Metro, buses and trains in the city and surrounds operate on a one-fare system, where tickets are valid for all three types of transport with no extra cost for transfer. Services are frequent between 5am and 12.30am, with several night buses operating from the City Hall Square to the suburbs in between. On Friday and Saturday the Metro runs all night. The Metro runs from Vanlose Station to Lergravsparken in East Amager, to Orestad in West Amager and to Frederiksberg. Buses are yellow and bus stop clearly marked with matching yellow signs. Tourists are advised to obtain the ''Copenhagen Card'', which offers free transport and free entry to most major attractions in the city. A favourite mode of transport for locals and visitors is the bicycle, and Copenhagen has cycle paths and routes along all major streets. Free bicycles are provided between May and September in a series of Bike Parks where it is possible to deposit a coin, obtain the use of a bicycle, drop it off at another park later and retrieve the deposit. For good quality bike-rentals, visit Baisikeli bicycle shop in Tursensgade; a benevolent company using the proceeds to benefit the poor in Africa, shipping second-hand bikes overseas regularly. So, roam the streets on a rented bike feeling inspired, energised and kind. Copenhagen is well supplied with licensed taxis, operated by five different companies. Taxis display a lighted sign when they are for hire, and can be flagged down anywhere. Cycle taxis, similar to the rickshaws operating in the Far East, have also been introduced and are popular with visitors. Traffic is usually congested in the city centre and a car can be a liability rather than an asset. The city has a complicated colour-coded zone pay parking system in operation during business hours.
