Getting around in Oslo

Oslo offers convenient public transportation, and short distances make it easy to get around by walking or biking.


Public transport in Oslo

All the public transport in Oslo and the surrounding county Akershus is part of the same ticket and price system, operated by Ruter. Ruter's tickets are valid for buses, trams, subways, ferries (not the Bygdøy ferry) and local trains.

Free travel with the Oslo Pass

Public transport within zone 1 (Oslo) and zone 2 is free with the Oslo Pass. This also includes the ferry to the Bygdøy museums, which is not included in the regular tickets.

Bus route changes

Starting 19 August, there will be changes to a number of bus routes in Oslo due to roadworks and congestion in the city centre. We recommend checking Ruter's journey planner for updated departure times and routes.
