Bybanen (Bergen Light Rail):
Bybanen is a light rail that stretches from Byparken in the city centre to Lagunen in the Fana district. Since Bybanen mostly is separated from the ordinary traffic, it is a more effective way of travel than regular city trams. During 2016, Bybanen will open its final stretch from Lagunen to Bergen airport Flesland. With stops within short distances from the big tourist attractions like Troldhaugen (Edvard Grieg Museum), Bybanen is frequently used by locals, tourists and travelers. Many of the stops have good connection to the city buses, like the terminal stations at Lagunen and Byparken, making it easy for travelers to get to their final destinations. In many cases, the quickest way to get to downtown Bergen is to hop off a bus and take the Bybanen to Bergen city centre.
