SJ at a glance
As the market-leading train operating company, SJ links Sweden together, and opens the doors to Scandinavia’s capitals: Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo. Thereby creating opportunities for people to live and work or study in different places and to travel in a convenient and sustainable manner.
Some 160 years ago, SJ’s very first train departed from Gothenburg Central Station. Today, we operate 1,200 daily departures from 284 stations — from Narvik in the North to Copenhagen in the South, and from Stockholm in the East to Oslo in the West.
SJ is a limited liability company owned by the Swedish state and is tasked with operating profitable passenger rail services, both independently and on behalf of national and regional traffic authorities.
SJ’s own rail services are primarily long-distance, comprising high-speed and night-train services as well as regional rail services between major cities in Sweden and the Scandinavian capitals. Tendered services mainly comprise shorter rail journeys for commuting to work or school within one county or region. One such example is SJ’s subsidiary, SJ Götalandståg, which is tasked with operating commuter and regional trains in Western Sweden.
SJ is part of the solution for meeting Sweden’s climate targets and all our trains in Sweden carry the Good Environmental Choice (Bra Miljöval) label.
