Denmark - Driving and Public Transportation
Driving in Denmark is on the right. The speed limits, which are strictly enforced, are 110kph on motorways, 80kph on other major roads and 50kph in built-up areas. The only toll roads are the two major bridges between Zealand and Funen and between Copenhagen and Malmo. There are many car ferries connecting the roads between Denmark's many islands.
Denmark has an extensive, efficient and fairly affordable public transport system, partly run by the state and partly by private companies. The government encourages the use of public transport rather than private cars and the majority of the population use these services on a regular basis. Each city and region of Denmark has a local public transport company.
Within Copenhagen there is a Metro which opened in 2002 and is gradually being extended throughout the city. City transport is also provided in the form of Copenhagen's distinctive yellow buses. Denmark's smaller towns and rural areas are well served by local buses and regional train services.
Cycling is another very popular alternative form of transport in Denmark, and there are cycle lanes throughout the cities. However, cycling is not allowed on the highways.
Most of Denmark's smaller islands can only be reached by ferry.
There are a number of domestic airports serving most of Denmark's main cities; flights generally take less than 30 minutes.
