By Air: The main international airport in Stockholm is Arlanda Airport. Bromma Airport mostly services regional cities. From Arlanda Airport a regular express train departs, called the Arlanda Express, which takes 20 minutes to arrive at the Stockholm central station, T Centralen-Stockholm C, from which junction the TBana (Stockholm metro), as well as buses and taxis can be used for further travel. Tickets for the Arlanda Express can be easily purchased from machines in the airport terminals. There is also an airport bus as well as a commuter train (pendaltåg), the latter leaves from Arlanda 'Skycity' located between terminals 1-4 and 5.
Stockholm Taxis: take care! These are deregulated, and so the cost can vary greatly between taxi services!
T-Bana: This is the local Stockholm metro or underground system. You can by an SL Card to ride the T-Bana, and also the pendeltåg (commuter trains) and Stockholm buses too. SL Cards cost 20 SEK, and can be topped up with 100 SEK (4 rides) or 200 SEK (8 rides) or more, and are best purchased at the small deli-newsagencies to be found near every T-Bana station called Pressbyrån.
