Getting around in Gothenburg is fairly simple thanks to the city's organised layout. The city centre is pedestrian-friendly, and walking is considered the best way to take in all the sights. Bicycles are also available for hire, and a network of bike paths make it a pleasant and convenient mode of transport.
Public transportation is made up of a network of buses, trams, and ferries. Tickets are sold at 7-Eleven shops, transport service centres, and Pressbyrån shops. Single tickets are also available on trams; however, one, three, or 30-day tickets, or the Gothenburg City Card, are generally more economical options for busy travellers.
Bicycle and tram traffic can make driving in Gothenburg a bit confusing, and renting a car is generally only necessary for trips outside the city centre. Taxis are available by phone but they are not regulated and are considered rather expensive.
