Get in

The town has good communications. The road-network are excellent and the only time to expect traffic jams is at four o'clock when most people head home from their work. There are also a railway-station and an airport.

The Dala Airport in Borlänge has routes to Stocholm, Gothenburg and Malmö.

By train

Get around

Getting around by car is easy, however the road-signs are - as in the rest of Sweden - in Swedish so a map is suggested.

The bus-network covers the entire town and the villages outside. A ride inside the towns borders costs 17 SEK for adults(over 16 years old), and 14 SEK for children.
