Public Transport in Denmark


    Most people prefer to know about the public transport system in the country they will be visiting before they arrive. Frankly, we would too. Therefore, we have a guide to introduce you to the public transport system in Denmark.  

    Although Denmark is a relatively small country, it has more than 400 islands, so a well-connected transport system is necessary to meet the demands of Danes who travel to and from work and school each day. When Danes aren’t driving their cars or using their bicycles - which they do frequently - their primary means of transportation are buses, trains and Metro. The transport system in Denmark is generally reliable, especially in larger cities such as Aarhus and Odense.  The Metro won awards for “Best Metro” and “Best Driverless Metro” at the 2010 Metrorail Congress in London.
