Getting around - transportation

Getting to Bergen from the airport

From Bergen Airport the light rail called 'Bybanen', line 1, goes to the city centre. Bybanen stops at the campus on Kronstad. A ticket with Bybanen costs 40 NOK and takes approximately 30 minutes to Kronstad and 45 minutes to the city centre. Bybanen is the best and cheapest alternative for guests arriving by plane. Buy tickets here.

There are airport buses running between the airport and the city centre, called "Flybussen". These do not stop at the campus. A ticket with the airport bus costs approximately 150 NOK. 

A taxi from Bergen Airport Flesland takes approximately 20 minutes to the campus at Kronstad, depending on traffic. 

Getting to campus from the city centre

If you arrive by train or boat, you will need to go to the campus from the city centre. The easiest way to get to Campus Kronstad is to take the light rail, "Bybanen." Both line 1 and line 2 stops at campus Kronstad, the stop has the name Kronstad. Only line 1 goes by and stops at Danmarksplass.
