Share this article

The Swedish Transport Administration is monitoring developments in relation to the coronavirus. We thank you for following the recommendations of the Public Health Agency when travelling.

Updated April 16th 2020
Protect yourself and others. Stay home if you are feeling ill and wash your hands carefully. Keep your distance to others on public transport, and avoid unnecessary travelling. We also ask you to cancel your driver’s license test if you are ill or have symptoms. Please prevent rumours and stay updated by following the official channels from relevant authorities.

The Swedish Transport Administration is monitoring developments in relation to the coronavirus and adjusting its response according to recommendations from the Public Health Agency and other relevant authorities and we apply the precautionary principle.

The Swedish Transport Administration’s national crisis coordination team has been activated to ensure a collective focus in terms of our priorities and any action we plan to take. This will allow us to continually monitor the course of events with regard to the coronavirus, and adapt our response accordingly based on the very latest situation.

The Swedish Transport Administration currently receives many questions regarding the consequences of the outbreak of the coronavirus and force majeure. A general position in this matter is not possible, but each situation must be considered separately while taking the specific circumstances and conditions into account. To the extent that you consider that coronavirus affects your agreement(s) with the Swedish Transport Administration, it is important that you handle these matters in accordance with each separate agreement. The contact persons and ways to communicate agreed upon in each separate contract should thus be applied also in matters regarding the coronavirus.
