Oh, i was going to see some side neighbourhoods plus i wanted to find nice place at the bay/harbor/sea to rest a bit from the city. So i randomly chose that place by looking at the map and searching for a place close to the water and good conection with the public transport. And it was a perfect match.
In Skärsätra there is this small nature reserve just 3 mins walk from the station and it has the water too.

That is the thing I love about Stockholm, the public transport can take you right to a fantastic nature reserve in so many different places. If you're in Stockholm again in the future, I can recommend a number of public transport trips you might be interested in taking! I really liked Lidingo myself, though the people are a bit more snobby there.

Did you take any other pictures of the Tunnelbana or buses at all? We'd all really like to see them!

Hallonbergen is quite unique as a station. The decorations on the walls are by Elis Eriksson and Gösta Wallmark and mimic the drawings of children. Not my style, but at least it's interesting!

Fantastic pictures! I always like looking at shots of the tunnelbana network as it really does have to be one of my favourite metro systems that I've used.

Rĺdhuset was my most used station when I stayed in Kungsholmen. It's a really cool station and set in a very nice area of the city too. Were you staying in a backpackers in the area?

yhm... where's the backpackers area? I was staying close to Rĺdmansgatan station, corner Kammakargatan/Drottinggatan.

Ok, here are some more pics of the metro/tunnelbana

In some cars there are still the old fashion maps:

which look better in my opinion than the newer ones

Sheash! You were really all over the city! I thought I was the only one who took every form of transport that Stockholm had to offer!

I like the new X60 Pendeltĺg trains, they are very comfortable, smooth and fast. I really look forward to the Citybanan tunnel being finished in 2017 so that we can get a more frequent service on the lines too (coupled with upgrades to areas like Södertälje with double-tracking and capacity upgrades there) and the Mälarbanan duplication to allow greater capacity to the west of Stockholm too.

Well if u want to see the town u have to use all the ways the city offers. Here there are so many means of transport that its impossible to avoid them if u want to move around fast and easy. All u need is a good map i guess. Trams and buses will come soon;-)

Ok, i found just one picture of the tram no. 7
I'm not a fan of this kind of transportation. The trams - in the middle of traffic, without exlusive right of way - are so slowly. So i still cant see the point of implementation of this new line on the route that could be served better by buses.



But what i found in Stockholm as well, was the busway at the royal palace.

The tram line 7 has a lot of segregated right of way in the city centre. Small parts are shared but along nearly all its route it is segregated, as are the buses. There are lots of segregated sections for buses in the city centre like you have pictured above at the royal palace. The reason for the perception of slow speed is because of the low speed limits around Stockholm city centre.

The tram line is shown to be segregated largely in this timelapse video here. Notice when it says "Buss" on the road, it means it is a public transport only lane:
