    Stockholm's subway system is called the tunnelbana and consists of three lines running through the city centre with connections to the suburban train network. Most travellers find this the easiest way to get around. The tunnelbana runs between 5 am and 1am (later on weekends) with trains running about once every five minutes. There is always subway and bus/taxi for transportation. Stand-by for info on summer season subway transportation rebates and event tickets for summer season, which you obtain at the tourist office once in Stockholm.
