To and from the airport, you can get to Uppsala by direct trains (SJ or SL/UL), the local UL bus (route 801), FlixBus, or the SL night bus (route 593). Trains depart from SkyCity, located between Terminals 4 and 5. The UL bus stops at Terminal 5 (international arrivals), 4, 3 and 2. For details about FlixBus and the SL night buses, see links below. If you wish to travel by taxi, the three largest taxi companies in Uppsala offer fixed prices for travel between Uppsala and Arlanda.
