Transportation in Linköping
Taxis can be found by the train station or at key spots around the city, but they are expensive. Unless you are really in a hurry, there's no reason not to use public transport.
The best way to get around Linköping's centre as a tourist is on foot. You can walk from the train station in the centre to the popular museums in the west in less than an hour. If you get tired there are plenty of cosy cafés around.
The buses departing from resecentrum in the centre are cheap and easy to use. Lines 1, 2 and 3 all pass through the centre to go north/south, south-west and west. Line 10 runs north to the shopping centre in Tornby, while the 525 goes out of town to the docks in Berg.
