KTH has an own subway station called “Tekniska högskolan”. Take the red line towards “Mörby centrum” (not Ropsten!) if you come from the city center. The hackathon will take place at the reactor hall R1 at the KTH main campus.
Transport from/to Stockholm Arlanda airport
The Stockholm Arlanda airport is located about 40 km north of Stockholm.
You will find taxis just outside the Arrival Hall at the airport. Note that taxi fares may differ substantially. Settle the price before getting into the taxi. Here you can find updated pricing information on taxis: http://ww.taxistockholm.se.
There is an express train service from Arlanda to Stockholm City which is faster and cheaper than going by taxi. The travel time is 20 min and there is a train every 15 min. Find some more information here: http://www.arlandaexpress.com.
Buses leave from the airport every 10 minutes for the City Terminal in central Stockholm, near the Central Station. The bus ride takes about 35-45 minutes depending on the traffic. From the City Terminal you may either take a taxi to your final destination in Stockholm or take the underground from the station “T-centralen”. Underground stations are marked with a blue T on a white background. You can also ask the bus driver to give you a “flightbus taxi”, which means that you start off with the bus to the City Terminal and from there continue with a taxi to your destination in Stockholm.

There are so called “SL cards” which are valid for all public transport in the Stockholm area. Please visit the following web page for more information on tickets and pricing: http://sl.se/en/Visitor/Tickets/.
