Free city busYou might have noticed a pink and a green minibuses touring the city centre. This is a free bus service that departs every eight minutes from the bus terminal and circles the downtown and the harbour areas. View the route.
Trains in Denmark are operated by DSB. Tickets for the train can be bought either online, at the ticketing office or at a ticket machine. If you are an adult travelling on the train, you are allowed to bring up to two children under the age of 12 free of charge. Children between 12 and 15 travel at a reduced price, while children 16 and above pay full price. In addition to your train ticket, you need to buy a seat ticket (30 DKK) if you want to reserve a seat in advance. By buying a Standard ticket, you can also use the same ticket for traveling with bus, metro, local train or tram on that day for free.
DSB Orange tickets
You can also buy your train ticket in advance (tickets are on sale 2 months before the date), so if you already know when you will need to travel with the train, you can have more options to choose from.
NB: Orange ticket is not valid for all trains (like Standard ticket), it is only sold for an individual departure (selected date and time), and cannot be changed or refunded. With Orange tickets you cannot travel with other public transportation for free. This ticket cannot be combined with other discounts either.
