The Stockholm subway ("tunnelbanan")

Construction on Stockholm's subway ("tunnelbana" in Swedish) began after World War II, although the first line incorporated a streetcar tunnel under Södermalm that had been opened in 1933 (between Slussen and Ringvägen; the latter station is now called Skanstull).  The tunnelbana today has a total length of 110 km (about 66 miles), with exactly 100 stations in service, and it has over one million boardings on a typical weekday.

The tunnelbana consists of three "banor" or systems, each of which has two or more lines.  Below, I have presented each system by itself with a list of stations, from timetable north to timetable south.  Individual lines are also indicated, with their current extent (as of this writing).  The stations that I have pictures of are linked to the pages with pictures.

Here is a map of the tunnelbana:

20 June 2003: The above map is now clickable. If you locate and click a link along one of the lines (i.e., not the station name), you'll be taken to the page for that station. Note that not all stations have links.

You can also take a look at Per Ampferer's site about the tunnelbana, translated into English by yours truly.


 

System 1 ("Tub1", green lines)

This system has three lines, 17, 18 and 19.  Additional lines are run in peak periods, generally turning back at different points from the base lines 17, 18 and 19; e.g., line 28 generally runs between Hökarängen and Vällingby.  The first portion, between Slussen and Hökarängen (now on the southern part of line 18), opened on 1 October 1950.  Only minor extensions have been built since 1960, the most recent to Skarpnäck in 1994.

System 2 ("Tub2", red lines)

This system has two lines, currently 13 and 24.  Additional lines are run as needed (not only in the peak), particularly between Mörby centrum and Liljeholmen; these extra lines generally don't follow the same stretches as the base lines 13 and 24.  The initial portion of this system, between T-Centralen and Fruängen/Örnsberg, opened on 5 April 1964 (both southern branches opened on the same day), and the most recent extension was to Mörby centrum in 1978.

System 3 ("Tub3", blue lines)

This system has two lines, 10 and 11.  Frequencies are increased in the peak, but no additional lines are run.  The initial portion of this system, between T-Centralen and Hjulsta (via Hallonbergen), opened on 31 August 1975, and the most recent opening was in 1985.
