Copenhagen to Malmo and Lund (transportation)

Hi

I would like to get transport advise on a day trip from CPH to Malmo and Lund :

(1) Understand we will better view of the bridge by bus from CPH. May I know from Copenhagen airport, which bus to take? I read about bus 999 but would not find the route. Of taking Bus4You is similar?

(2) From Malmo to Lund, is there more than 1 trian provider, DB, SJ, ? Are they of the same price for the ticket which I undertstand the journey is about 10 mins. Or any particular train to use?

Thanks in advice for your help.

1. Yes, the view of the bridge is better from a bus. Don't know which buses there are though.

2. Yes, SJ and Skånetrafiken. They have their own tickets and you can't use a SJ-ticket on a Skånetrafiken train and v.v. as far as I know.

Thanks.

is the price on either train quite similar? Do I need to buy in advance or it is fine to buy at the station?

If you want to have flexible journey back to Copenhagen, take the bus to Sweden and the train back since there a lot of trains to choose from for your return journey and no prebooking required.

Long distance buses are Flixbus, Nettbuss and Swebus. Pretty sure they all require prebooking. They probably all go to Lund too if you want to start there.

Copenhagen-malmö bus, you pay the driver. Cash only it seems but both SEK and DKK are accepted. graahundbus.dk/999-koebenhavn-malmo-centrum

SJ requires prebooking and are expensive for short journeys so it is no idea to use them.

Thanks Anders J

Yes, I found Nettbuss bus from CPH to Malmo. But to Lund, it need to change to another bus and there is a wait in between. there is under Flxibus too but the timing is very early.

In this case, we will then tour Malmo for half a day. After that will take a train to Lund and another half day there, followed by train from Lund back to CPH.

So we do not use SJ will do? any other train is fine?

For the trains, we can just buy at the train station?

Do they can cash for the purchase of the tickets?

There might be a few other trains running. You buy a ticket at the station from an authority called Skånetrafiken. Their trains are branded Öresundståg and Pågatåg. A ticket is valid on any of those two. I believe the ticket machines at larger stations still accept cash. There are also ticket offices at both stations. In Malmö it is in the south end of the station. In Lund it is not in the station building itself but in an former warehouse building alongside track 1.

Yes, there is border control after crossing the border. It's actually even tighter now than before (all passengers *should* be checked, which weren't the case earlier).
