Changes in traffic
Major changes to bus routes and timetables are generally made when the timetable changes. However, we may need to make adjustments during the current timetable period. These could be planned, unplanned, short-term or long-term changes.
Planned service changes during the timetable period
Sometimes there are road closures due to big events or roadworks and buses have to take an alternative route. This is called a planned traffic change and information on these types of changes can be found on our website’s start page.
Details of planned traffic changes can also be found in our app, on notice boards at the relevant bus stops, and on information signs where possible.
At the moment, we only have traffic information in Swedish on our website. If you need some help - Please contact our Customer Service.
Unplanned traffic changes during the timetable period
Sometimes there is an unplanned service change. These are more sudden changes caused by situations that have a direct impact on our bus services. Examples include a water leak or traffic accident. As a result our buses may need to take an alternative route or may be delayed. To find out information about these changes, contact our Customer Service.
If, as a result of an unplanned traffic change, you are delayed reaching your destination you can get compensation under our Travel Guarantee. Read more about our Travel Guarantee here.
We may need to make changes to our timetables on public holidays. Usually this means we run a Sunday service on weekdays. Here is a list of the type of service we run on public holidays, but we recommend that you regularly visit the page to see if there are any changes in the run-up to a public holiday.
|Date||Public holiday||Type of service|

|5 Jan||Twelfth Night||Normal weekday|
|30 April||Walpurgis Night||Normal weekday|

|All Saints' Day||Sunday|
|24 Dec||Christmas Eve||Saturday*|
|25 Dec||Christmas Day||Sunday|
|26 Dec||Boxing Day||Sunday|
|31 Dec||New Year's Eve||Saturday|
*City and regional buses run up to 23:00. There are no night services.
Timetables – finding out bus and train times
There are several ways you can find out your departure time. You can:
- look it up on our website by searching for your journey in our Journey Planner,
- use our app
- download our timetables in PDF format
We recommend using our Journey Planner here on our website or the app to find your routes. If instead you decide to use our PDF timetables, it’s a good idea to regularly check that they are up to date and that no changes have been made.
Timetables in PDF form can be accessed in several ways on our website:
- By clicking on Timetables in the journey planner on the start page
- By clicking on Timetables in the journey planner on the Travelinfo page
- Via a service page
For the first two alternatives, you simply search for the service you want to find a timetable for. You can also scroll in the list of timetables or sort according to municipal area.
You can find a service page in several ways. You can use, for example, the service search function in Travelinfo. The service page also includes further information in addition to the timetable. Click on the service you are looking for and you will be transferred to the service page.
If you choose to view the timetables in PDF format, it is recommended that you check regularly to ensure they are still up to date. If there are any adjustments, the timetables are replaced, and they are made available on our website in PDF format. However, we do not send out updates automatically to those who have downloaded the timetables previously.
The timetables in PDF format are currently not adapted to individuals with special accessibility requirements. If you need some form of accessibility assistance, we recommend that you use another alternative. You are welcome to contact our Customer Service Department for help and advice.
The journey planner can be found both on the start page and under Travelinfo. The reason for placing the journey planner on the start page is to make it easier for you to plan your journey with Länstrafiken. Our aim is to make the journey planner as self-explanatory and straightforward as possible.
Possibilities and options in the journey planner
There are three ways of searching for your journey:
- Search for a journey
- Bus stop departure times
Search for a journey
Search for a journey allows you to search to/from specific stops. You can begin by entering details in the bus stop field to create a list of stops that you can search from/to. You can use the arrow keys to change the direction of your search. You can also choose the time at which you wish to travel before you make the search.
If you want to adjust your search, you have several search options to choose from. This will allow you to adapt your journey more closely to your needs. You can adjust your search based on the following options:
- Transfer time – How long do you need to change buses? As a rule, the normal transfer time is 0 minutes. In the case of larger stops – Örebro Travel Centre for example – the normal transfer time is extended. At those stops where the transfer time is 0 minutes, we cannot guarantee that you will have time to change bus.
- Priority – What would you like to focus on in your search? Is it the shortest travelling time or the least number of changes?
- Type of bus – Used if you only want to view regional buses or city buses. If you do not make a choice, both are shown automatically.
- Maximum walking distance – Do you want to know the walking distance to/from a stop, or when changing from one stop to another? At present, the distance is calculated as the crow flies, which could be a little misleading. Make sure you allow plenty of time.
Previous searches are saved on the device on which the search was made. Many visitors often make the same or similar journeys. By saving previous searches, we want to make it easier for you to search for the same journey again. Click on a previous search to move it up to the search field in the journey planner. You can remove previous searches by clicking on the cross beside the search.
After you have completed a search in the journey planner on the start page, you will be transferred to the Travelinfo page. The reason for doing so is to give you access to further information that could be useful to you when travelling with us.
Map in Journey planner
You can click on Map to see the location of our bus stops. This can be done in two ways. If you enter the name of a stop and click on Map, the stop will be pre-marked on the map as either From or To. If you do not enter the name of a stop and click on Map, you will be transferred to a map without a pre-marked stop.
The symbol shown in the image above indicates that there are several stops close to the symbol. If you click on the symbol, the map zooms in and the stops become visible.
If you click on a bus stop icon, a box will appear with several options, along with information about the stop:
If you click on a stop, a box will open, and the name of the stop will appear at the top. Under the name there will be a list of upcoming departure times from that stop, together with the service number and direction.
The box also has the following:
- Bus stop page – Takes you to the page for the stop you have chosen and provides further information about the stop
- Show bus services – Shows the route for the service that operates from your chosen stop
- Travel from – Indicates the stop for a From journey
- Travel to – Indicates the stop for a To journey
If you choose to click on From/To, the stop will be marked, and you will be presented with further options:
If you click on Find journey in the box, your chosen stop will be moved to the journey planner.
The map can be closed by clicking on Close map. You will then return automatically to the journey planner and the current search.
When you have completed your search, the available departure times will be shown. The heading above the departure times shows the day and date of departure. The departure times, journey time and service number are shown first. If you click on Earlier departures or Later departures, earlier or later departure times will be shown.
If you would like further information about a specific departure, click on the plus sign to the right. Here you can see comments for the departure in question. You can also see the route for the departure on a map.
Traffic information is presented as soon as there is a traffic disruption that involves any of the stops along the route.
If you would like even more information about the route, click on the plus icon beside the departure stop or destination stop. The whole of the route for the departure you have chosen will then be shown, complete with stops. If the departure includes changes, this can be done for the different sections along the route.
Bus stop departure times
You can search for departure times from individual stops by choosing Bus stop departure times in the journey planner. If you enter the name of a stop and make a search, upcoming departures are shown from the stop you have selected. The search is made for the next 24 hours. If, for example, you have made a search on a Friday afternoon and the service you have chosen does not have any departures during the weekend, no departure times will be shown. Approximate times are marked in italics.
By clicking on the service number, you can go to the bus service page for further information.
There is also a third way of finding departure times via the journey planner. This option is Timetables. All routes are listed in numerical order from the start, and you can search for routes by entering the service number. It is also possible to sort according to municipal area. In that case, all the services that operate within a municipal area are shown.
You can do the following things in our app:
- Buy single tickets for the bus
- Find departure times for our buses
- Find the nearest bus stop
- See bus stop times
- Access timetables
- Get information about planned traffic disturbances (in Swedish only)
Downloading the app
The app is available for iPhone and Android. It is also available for J2me (Java phones). Search for Länstrafiken Örebro in the App Store or Google Play and download the app. You can also request a link to the app by texting ‘Ltö’ to 073-012 52 50.
Having problems with the app?
If you have a problem with the app or purchases via the app, we recommend that first you check your internet connection. Do you have internet access and are still having the problem? If so, please contact our Customer Service for further assistance.
If you have a problem with payment, you should first contact the company that provides the payment service you used. If you have a problem paying by invoice or any questions about your invoice, you can contact Klarna. Are you having problems paying by bank card? Contact the bank that issued the card.
From July 1st, you can no longer order a personal timetable.
If you would like to order a personal timetable you can do so buy contacting our Customer Service. Choose the routes you want on your timetable and the preferred delivery method. You can have your timetable sent by email or post. If you opt for post, we will send it to the specified address free of charge within 10 working days. Delivery may take slightly longer when timetables change.

You can take your bicycle on regional buses. There are also several good parking facilities at larger bus stops where you can leave your bike and then travel by bus.
You can bring your bicycle on board free of charge, space allowing, and secure it at the back of the bus. There is space for up to 2 bicycles per regional bus on a first-come, first-served basis. You bring your bicycle on board at your own risk.
You must hang up and take down your bicycle from the bus yourself, but always tell the bus driver that you are bringing a bicycle on board. The bus driver does not have any straps or lashes to secure your bicycle, so make sure you have them with you. The bicycle stands on the buses, however, are designed to be used without straps.
City and express buses
Bicycles cannot be taken on city and express buses. Expresses buses are the ones on all routes with a three-digit number beginning with an 8.
Bicycles on trains
Would you like to find out about bringing your bicycle on a train? We recommend that you contact the rail company you plan to travel with. We have a list of the main rail companies operating in our county here.
Bicycle shelters and parking facilities
It’s usually easy to bring your bicycle to the nearest bus stop. To make life easier, there are different kinds of parking facilities and shelters in the county where bicycles can be parked close to bus stops.
Here are a few tips on where you can park your bicycle:
Hällefors Travel Center has a covered bicycle stand for around 10-15 bicycles. You can also park your bicycle more centrally in Hällefors but the bicycle stand has no roof.
There are some lockable bicycle stands at larger bus stops along the Rv63 main road and work is under way to install more.
There are two lockable bicycle shelters at the bus station in Karlskoga, with space for 22 bicycles in total. By registering your Travelcard you can access the bicycle shelters 24 hours a day. The ideal place to park your bicycle if you’re travelling with us!
Further information and registration can be found on the Karlskoga Municipality website.
Kumla Travel Center has a shelter as well as wind and rain protection for bicycles. Further information is available at Kumla Municipality.
Kopparberg and Ställdalen
There are covered bicycle shelters both at the railway station in Kopparberg and in Ställdalen.
Laxå Travel Center has a large covered bicycle shelter with wind protection in the form of a glass wall.
Alternatively there is a covered bicycle shelter at Centralskolan in Laxå.
Lindesberg Travel Center has 110 parking spaces for bicycles under a canopy. There are around 80 spaces to the east of the railway.
Örebro Travel Center has a bicycle shelter with secure storage at a reasonable price. Further information is available from Örebro Municipality website.
You can bring your wheelchair, walking frame or pram/buggy on board our buses free of charge. They share the same area in the bus and can be brought on board subject to space being available.
No category takes precedence over another, and the bus driver decides how many prams/buggies and walking frames can be taken on board without putting safety at risk.
Prams/buggies, wheelchairs and walking frames may not be positioned so that they obstruct other passengers or block emergency exits.
Anyone travelling with a pram/buggy or walking frame is responsible for the pram or walking frame and its safety. Prams/buggies and walking frames must have their brakes applied during the journey. When securing devices are available for prams/buggies and walking frames, they must be used. Do not leave your child in the pram/buggy during the journey.
Seat belts for all seats
By law, all bus passengers over the age of 3 must wear a seat belt if one is available. Länstrafiken’s regional and express buses are fitted with three-point seat belts which are nice and easy to use. City buses are not fitted with seat belts.
The buses in the north, south and west of the county also have loose booster cushions to help the seat belt fit correctly.
Fixed child safety seats increase safety for young children on buses
We have fitted our regional and express buses in the south, north and west of the county with special rear-facing child safety seats, similar to those used in cars.
The child safety seats are suitable for children up to 18 kg and have five-point belts for extra safety.
The seats are integrated in the back of the back supports on regular seats, and they are very easy to use – the back support folds forward so that the child safety seat is at the correct angle. This position means you can have eye contact with your child during the journey.
Each bus has two integrated child safety seats that are clearly indicated in a contrasting colour. The colour may vary on different models of bus.
The following bus routes have child safety seats:
Route 302 Örebro - Nora - Hällefors
Route 304 Hällefors - Nora - Lindesberg

Luggage on buses
You can bring your luggage on board our buses free of charge. By luggage we mean something that you can carry yourself and fit by your seat or on the hat-rack. Your luggage must not obstruct other passengers, take up seats, block emergency exits, obscure the driver’s view, obstruct the driver or affect on-board safety in any other way. Large suitcases and items of luggage are accepted subject to space being available and are then stored in the luggage space.
You may not bring on board luggage that could be disruptive or annoying to others. Luggage that is inflammable or explosive is not permitted.
As a passenger you are responsible for your own luggage. Tip! Clearly label your luggage with your name, address and phone number in case you leave it on the bus.
Pets on buses
You may bring a dog, cat or other small pet on board free of charge. Your pet must not cause trouble for fellow passengers and it must be on a lead or in a cage throughout the journey. You are responsible for your pet. If you bring a furred pet onto the bus, we kindly ask you to listen to the bus driver’s instructions regarding the best place for you and your pet to sit on the bus.
Larger animals are not permitted on buses.
Useful info – rules for everyone’s comfort
We want you and all of our passengers to feel comfortable travelling with us. To create a pleasant atmosphere on board the bus, both for your and for other passengers, we kindly ask you to consider the following:
Signal clearly to the driver so that he/she can see that you want to get on. Ideally wear reflectors when it’s dark.
When two buses arrive at a bus stop at the same time, the second bus will not stop there too, instead passengers must board the first bus. If three buses arrive at a bus stop, the third bus will wait until the first two have driven off before driving up to the bus stop to allow passengers to board.
Strong scents – (such as perfume) can trigger asthma.
Eating on the bus – For the comfort of others you must not
- · drink alcohol or smoke
- · bring explosive items on board
- · ride roller-skates, inlines or a skateboard
- · put your feet on the seats or other fittings
Intoxicated people or people who for some other reason may be deemed to cause discomfort to fellow passengers, may not be allowed to travel or may be asked to leave the bus.
Demand-led routes are routes that only run if someone has booked a trip. If no booking has been made, the route will not run. The routes are often run using smaller vehicles and are adapted to the number of bookings.
Demand-led routes that need to be booked are marked with an ‘A’ in the comments line of the timetable for each route. The booking deadline is given in the footnote to the comment.
Booking or cancelling a demand-led route
Anyone who wishes to do so can book a trip on 0771-92 00 00 by the deadline stated in the timetable. Specify the route number and departure time when booking.
If you need to use a demand-led route to get to a medical appointment using route 708, 709 or 594, book your journey by 18:00 the weekday before travelling. ‘Weekday’ refers to standard Mondays-Fridays, i.e. excluding public holidays. These journeys can also be booked by text telephone on 019-670 25 07. When booking a service, state which care provider you will be visiting.
You must cancel your booking if you are unable to travel. Use the same phone number for bookings and cancellations.
Payment and cost of a demand-led route
The fare is the same as for regular traffic services on an equivalent route. We do not charge a fee for driving you to the door or charge extra for demand-led routes.
The form of payment depends on which demand-led route is required. Further information about payment can be obtained when booking.
Flextraffic (Flextrafik) is available in Örebro in the following areas: Norr (North), Solhaga, Västhaga, Rosta, Centrum (Centre) and Universitetssjukhuset (University Hospital). Flextraffic is adapted to make it easy for you to take your walking frame or wheelchair, but is available to everyone.
The bus picks you up from a flexpoint and has no fixed route. The bus’s route depends on which flexpoints have bookings.
The pick-up times are flexible and you will be notified of your exact departure time by phone around 15 minutes before pick-up.
Booking or cancelling Flextraffic
Flextraffic can be arranged via the Booking Centre on 0771-92 00 00 Monday-Sunday including public holidays, 06:30-21:00.
We recommend registering when you make your first booking. To register we need your name and phone number. Registration makes future bookings easier, but it is not mandatory.
Payment and cost of Flextraffic
You pay on board the bus. The easiest way to pay is using a pre-charged Travelcard. The fares are equivalent to the fares for travelling on regular services within the city of Örebro. You can also pay for single tickets via the app or pay the bus driver by bank card.
Further information and comments
We operate Flextraffic on behalf of Örebro Municipality. A list of flexpoints and further information on Flextraffic are available from Örebro Municipality. If you have any suggestions or comments regarding Flextraffic, please contact Örebro Municipality.
Local Services (Närtrafik) are available in Laxå and environs and must be booked. Local Services enable people staying in the municipality to travel within the municipality. The services are run using a small bus with a wheelchair space that picks you up from the requested address and takes you as close as possible to your requested destination.
Local Services pick you up from the pre-ordered address and do not run unless the service has been booked. If a lot of people want to travel, you may be asked to travel on another day or at a different time because we are unable to lay on extra vehicles for these services.
Booking or cancelling Local Services
Order via the Order Center on 0771-92 00 00. Your journey must be booked by 16:00 the day before the requested travel day. Give your name, address and ideally a phone number when booking.
Timetable for Local Services in Laxå

Buses without steps, specially trained drivers and better information. We are trying to adapt our buses and services so that they can be used by everyone.
Buses adapted for accessibility
Most of the buses are adapted for people with disabilities. For example, there are seats on the bus designated for people with disabilities.
The buses have a low step and can be lowered so that the floor is level with the pavement. This makes boarding easier for passengers with wheelchairs and walking frames, as well as those with prams/buggies. If necessary the driver can help you get on and off. The bus driver is also happy to assist you with paying if you wish.
Wheelchairs, walking frames and similar technical aids can be brought on board free of charge, space allowing. We accept wheelchairs with the following maximum dimensions in accordance with Swedish Public Transport Association recommendations:
- Total length: 1,200 mm
- Total width (at widest point): 700 mm
- Weight: 300 kg (chair + passenger)
Wheelchairs/walking frames and prams/buggies share the same area. Buses also have wheelchair brackets.
If necessary, you may stay seated in your wheelchair during the journey. The wheelchair must be placed in the designated area and the brake applied. In buses with special back supports, the wheelchair must be positioned so that it is rear facing. Where securing devices are available for wheelchairs, walking frames or other technical aids, they must be used.
Rules on wheelchairs, walking frames and similar aids are set out in our travel terms and conditions, which can be found via this link.
Work is ongoing to adapt bus stops and terminals, together with the municipalities and the Swedish Transport Administration. Some large bus terminals have monitors and automatic spoken information.
If you visit the website for the bus stop you wish to travel from, you can find images of what it looks like, which could help make your journey easier.
