Stockholm Central Station has 60 million passengers a year, with a forecast of 150 million passengers a year by 2030. Adjacent to the central station is the main metro station (T-Centralen), which is the only station where all metro lines meet. More than 300,000 passengers pass through the metro station every day.
Today, Stockholm Central Station is used as a final destination and transit point for long distance trains, Arlanda Express and the commuter network, as well as for the Metro and for both long distance and local buses.
In 2017, commuter trains will move from existing tracks at Stockholm Central Station to a completely new line underneath the city centre, the City Line. The City Line is a vital project for long-term rail development in the region and for the creation of an efficient public transport system that meets city’s requirements. Once completed, this new line will dramatically improve travel into and out of the city. The system includes a 6 km new tunnel under the city centre and two new stations. The main one, City Station, is located under Stockholm Central Station and the metro lines passing through T-Centralen.
