Public transport gathers a lot of people in confined spaces and and this creates a special need to take good care of each other to prevent infection.
Even though more and more aspects of daily life are gradually returning tomore normalcy it is still important to take the outbreak of coronavirus/Covid-19 seriously. The Copenhagen Metro has taken special steps to reduce the risk of spreading infection and we are in close dialogue with the relevant authorities.

If you do travel by bus, train or metro, you should:
