Pendeltåg Ersättningsbuss


Last Sunday, October 1st 2006, part of the south branch of Stockholm's pendeltåg was closed down for maintenance work. It was basically between Östertälje-Södertälje centrum and Södertälje centrum-Gnesta. Buses-on-rail service were set in, however, they worked far different from what it said on
According to, there were three bus lines going:
>> Östertälje-Södertälje hamn-Södertälje centrum, every 10th/30th minute
>> Östertälje-Södertälje centrum, every 15th minut with connection to the pendeltåg at Östertälje.
>> Södertälje centrum-Gnesta, departing at the same time as what the Gnesta train would have departed.
However, in reality, it was nothing like it; instead, it really was like this:
>> Östertälje-Södertälje hamn-Södertälje centrum, every 15th minute with connection to pendeltåg at Östertälje.
>> Östertälje-Södertälje centrum, departs approx. 2 minutes after the Södertälje hamn-Södertälje centrum bus.
>> Gnesta-Södertälje centrum, with connection to Södertälje-Östertälje bus at Södertälje hamn, which was not stated on SL's website.
>> Södertälje centrum-Södertälje hamn, local bus service running every 10th minute.
>> Södertälje hamn-Gnesta, not following any schedule; random departures.
>> Buses form Gnesta left at even XX:29s adn XX:45s.
