New destinations and more routes as Swebus announces summer timetable
In mid-June Swebus will be launching its summer timetable with extra routes, more departures and new, popular summer destinations. New for the summer are services to Falkenberg and more buses to Landvetter and Arlanda airports, as well as direct buses to the Hultsfred and Emmaboda festivals.
“We're adding more departures and destinations over the summer, as it's the most popular time of the year for people to travel,” says Swebus press officer Ingvar Ryggesjö. “Last year 30 percent more people travelled with us in July compared with an average month. What's more, our customers tend to use us for longer journeys at this time of year, probably because they have more time to travel during the holidays.”
New for this year are buses running between Stockholm and Falkenberg, more departures to Landvetter and Arlanda and direct buses to the Hultsfred and Emmaboda festivals. The summer timetable starts from 14 June but tickets are already on sale. The earlier you book, the cheaper your ticket. Tickets are available from www.swebus.se, by phoning +46 (0)771-218 218, and from Swebus representatives including Pressbyrån, 7-Eleven and Direkten.
New for the summer timetable 14 June – 22 August:
More airport connections
Bus traffic to and from Gothenburg's Landvetter airport will increase dramatically as Swebus adds eleven buses a day. With the new Swebus Flygtransfer service, passengers can also travel to and from Arlanda airport from all the places served by Swebus. This summer you will be able to travel all the way from Copenhagen without having to change bus in Stockholm. Buses to Arlanda also depart daily from Uppsala, Gävle, Malmö and Kalmar.
More buses to Liseberg

The timetable is designed around the amusement park's opening times.
Work on the line results in more buses between Gothenburg and Karlstad
