The Swedish Transport Administration and the coronavirus

The Swedish Transport Administration is monitoring developments in relation to the coronavirus. We thank you for following the recommendations of the Public Health Agency when travelling in Sweden.

Updated November 20th 2020

Advice for travellers on buses and trains or private cars  - in order to avoid crowding and more spreading of infection:

  • Pay attention to regional guidelines and restrictions and their effect on travelling
  • Only travel if it is necessary and avoid travelling during rush hours
  • Use your bike or walk when convenient
  • Try to find another substitute for public transport than your own car. More cars on the roads may cause traffic disruption.

Protect yourself and others. Stay home if you are feeling ill and wash your hands carefully. Keep your distance to others on public transport, and avoid unnecessary travelling. We also ask you to cancel your driver’s license test if you are ill or have symptoms. Please prevent rumours and stay updated by following the official channels from relevant authorities.

Link to regional guidelines and restrictions (

The Swedish Transport Administration is monitoring developments in relation to the coronavirus and adjusting its response according to recommendations from the Public Health Agency and other relevant authorities and we apply the precautionary principle.

The Swedish Transport Administration’s national crisis coordination team has been activated to ensure a collective focus in terms of our priorities and any action we plan to take. This will allow us to continually monitor the course of events with regard to the coronavirus, and adapt our response accordingly based on the very latest situation.

From 13 June, those without symptoms can travel in Sweden. It is important for everyone to maintain distance from other people, both while travelling and at the destination. Before your journey, check with the municipality (”kommunen”) you intend to visit if there are any local restrictions.

Avoid travelling on public transport. If you become ill, you need to be able to make your way home without putting others at risk of infection. Remember to maintain distance from others and avoid places where many people gather.

Public transport is in operation, but frequency and capacity may be limited.

Questions about Covid-19 and force majeure

The Swedish Transport Administration`s approach is to manage our socially critical deliveries.

A general position in this matter is not possible, but each situation must be considered separately while taking the specific circumstances and conditions into account. To the extent that you consider that coronavirus affects your agreement(s) with the Swedish Transport Administration, it is important that you handle these matters in accordance with each separate agreement. The contact persons and ways to communicate agreed upon in each separate contract should thus also be applied in matters regarding the coronavirus.
