The high modern, fully automated (the metro is driverless) subway, called Metro, in Copenhagen is a very effective link between the large urban areas to the east and west of the city centre. The two lines run daily, around the clock. During the day the interval is about 4 minutes, at night 15 to 20 min.
Regular buses run during the day every 2-6 minute (there is no timetable, but you can see when they arrive on small electronic displays at the stops).
S-buses are express buses mostly for commuters that link areas where other public transport is not well provided, while N-buses are the network of 10 lines that run during nights (1 -5 a.m.).
CityCirkel are small tourist buses that run a circular route in the centre, every 7 minutes. They stop on regular stops where the traffic is heavy; in other cases they can be hailed on the places marked with green dots on the curb.
The S-train service run by DSB is similar to the S-Bahn networks of Germany or Paris' RER system. It runs from early morning to late night; on Fridays and Saturdays all night.
A train run by Øresundtog, a Southern Sweden train service system, will take you to Malmö, Sweden, but you have to purchase a separate ticket at Skånetrafiken's or DBS's vending machines, or at a ticket office.
One of the best ways to discover Copenhagen on your own is by using one of the free City Bikes that you can find in numerous bike-stands within the city area.

As an estimate the price for a ride from Copenhagen Airport to the Copenhagen city centre should be approx 200-230 DKK. We recommend you to always ask first for an estimated price before selecting cab.
You can calculate the estimated price for taxifares at LUFTHAVNSTAXA.DK ». By doing this first you can check the approximated cost for selected routes and then mention/offer this price to the cabdriver.
