We recommend that you register with Flex traffic the first time you make a reservation. All you need to give us is your name and telephone number. Registration will make things easier the next time you use the service but is not compulsory. When you register with us, you automatically authorise us to process your personal data.
We tell you immediately the approximate time you will be picked up. The time may change later on if more people make reservations. We will call you 15 minutes before the anticipated pick-up time. Make sure you give us a phone number where you can be reached at that point.

Price and payment for Flex traffic
Flex traffic costs exactly the same as ordinary city buses and you can use the same type of tickets. The cheapest way is to use a Travel Card, which is available from our web shop, sales agents and bus drivers. You can purchase a one-way ticket from the driver, using the Länstrafiken app or a Travel Card loaded with Travel Credit. Keep in mind that drivers are not authorized to handle cash. However, our sale agents will be happy to take cash payments. Generally speaking, you save money by purchasing your ticket ahead of time.
If you show your appointment letter on the way to see a caregiver and your receipt on the way home, you can travel free of charge.
Flextrafiken will continue to operate in Karlskoga until May 31 2022
Flextrafiken has been in Karlskoga since 2018 and has been financed via a project between Karlskoga municipality and Region Örebro county. Due to financial reasons, Flextrafiken was planned to be closed down after the end of the project in the autumn of 2021.
At the end of October 2021, Karlskoga municipality decided to continue financing Flextrafiken for an extension period. The decision means that Flextrafiken will continue to operate in Karlskoga until May 31 2022. During the extension period, Karlskoga Municipality will investigate the possibilities for continued traffic with Flextrafik or another equivalent bus service. More information about this can be found on Karlskoga municipality's website.
