Transportation

Denmark has a well-functioning public transportation system with bus and train connections across the entire country. There are trains from Copenhagen Airport to all University College Absalon locations.

By train

The train is usually the fastest option. The trains are mostly on time, so be punctual. We recommend using the Journey Planner to plan your trip. DSB is the main provider of trains in Denmark. Please visit their webpage for more information about ticket options.

Travel Card (rejsekort): An electronic ticketing system for travelling by bus, train and metro. It calculates the price automatically when you check-in and out, which makes is an easy system to use. If you simply want an anonymous travel card, you can buy it at the central station in one of the blue machines. Then all you need to do, is top it up with money, and you are good to go.  

Other travel cards:
There are different types of travel cards. Depending on your need of transportation, you should decide what is best for you. Monthly All-Zone card (with a picture) or a 10-clip card ("klippekort"). The 10-clip card can be bough via the DSB app.

Youth Card (Ung Kort): If you are between 16 - 25 years old, you can obtain up to a 50% discount on your train journey with a 'DSB Ung kort'. You can also obtain a card, if you are a recipient of a state education grant at the time of purchase. It costs 125-150 DKK per year (depending on distribution type). NB: This is not valid for local journeys within Zealand, Lolland-Falster and Møn. 

Inexpensive youth tickets may not be combined with other discount deals, such as DSB Orange.

Please note, if you commute it might be benefitical of you to get a discounted Youth Card (called Ungdomskort), which is available for students on a higher educational institution. The Ungdomskort provides a daily public transport discount from your residence to the educational institution. Read more here.

Orange ticket: Mostly the cheapest ticket, available if you book well in advance. You get the biggest percentage of savings on the longer distances. 

Travelling by bike

By bus

The busses are really comfortable and a bus fare costs the same as a fare with the train. You can also use the 10-clip card/Monthly All-zone card and travel card in the busses. The zone-system will be the same as when you travel by train.

By taxi

Taxis are really expensive in Denmark. You contact them by phone or catch them outside the busiest train stations.
