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.

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:

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.

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.
