Practical information

Local transportation

From Trondheim train station

Take bus 310 or 410 towards Fannrem to Orkanger Skysstasjon, which is right next to Bårdshaug. Bus 410 is a few minutes slower, but goes along the coast; 310 is more regular and takes the new road with more tunnels. Tickets can be bought in several ways, see, and there is a combined shop/ticket vendor in the train station.

From the airport (two main alternatives)

1. The Værnes Express departs every twenty minutes from just outside the airport building with ticket sale on site. It takes you to Prinsens Gate (press stop) in 40 minutes. From there you walk 100 meters and change to 310 or 410 at Dronningens gate D1, using an AtB bus ticket as above.
