The town has good communications. The road network is excellent and the only time to expect traffic jams is at four o'clock when most people head home from their work. There is also a railway station and an airport.
Bus is in general the cheapest way of reaching Borlänge from other cities, although the biggest intercity bus company Swebus Express unfortunately doesn't have an English version of its site.
Borlänge is an important railway hub, tickets can be bought at the website of the Swedish railway company SJ.
Flights to Dala Airport in Borlänge go from Stockholm, tickets can be booked online at the site of the airline Skyways. Borlänge can also be reached by air from Malmö, Gothenburg and from Oslo, the capital of Norway. Tickets online at Direktflyg. Both airline sites have booking services in English.
Getting around by car is easy, however the road-signs are - as in the rest of Sweden - in Swedish so a map is suggested.
