- Operates six per cent of the Swedish bus market and 50 per cent of the bus market in Malmo
- Won a nine-year rail contract in 2007
- Won E20 - Sweden's largest multi-modal transport contract to date
We operate bus services in the south of Sweden where our focus on customer service and growth has delivered an increase in passenger numbers of more than 50 per cent since 2005.
In 2009 we became the first new entrant into the Stockholm bus market in 10 years, when we began operating 164 buses in the capital city.
We significantly increased our market share in the city in 2012 when we started operating the 12-year E20 contract.
Doubling our Swedish operations, E20 combines train, bus and light rail services in Stockholm into an integrated multi-modal transport network.
We operate a nine-year rail contract in southern Sweden and are working with the local transport authority to grow passenger numbers, mobilise new trains, increase the network size and deliver timetable improvements.

Arriva began operating the second phase of E20 - Sweden’s largest integrated multi-modal public transport tender – which includes a further 101 light trains on the city’s 65 kilometre Roslagsbanan tram system along with 229 buses in Stockholm’s northern district.
Arriva started operating the first phase of the E20 contract which delivers 61 million passenger journeys a year. We now operate the Nockebybanan tram line in the western suburbs of Stockholm; the Lindingöbanan light rail system and bus services in Bromma, Sollentuna, Solna and Sundbyberg.
