Getting to Uppsala from Vasteras


We're travelling from the UK to Uppsala in November - the Ryanair flight lands at Vasteras, which I understand to be an £80 taxi fare away.

Can anyone tell me if there's a shuttle bus, train or any other means of getting there? Is travel via Stokholm a better option?

We've considered car hire but the cost + parking, coupled with the fact the car hire companies are closed on Sunday when we return makes it less attractive. The possibility of snow also bothers me slightly as I understand there's a good possibility of heavy snowfalls in mid-November(?)

Can anyone offer advice?

Take shuttle taxi to Västerås station, preebook at


cost 50SEK

And then bus no 773 or 774 direct to Uppsala, cost 120SEK

Pay with credit card on the bus. Travel time 80-90 minutes, Bus every hour at least.


Airport coach to Stockholm and train to Uppsala will take longer and cost more

Heavy snow in these areas in november is unususual but it might happen!
