Swedish Migration FAQs

Last updated on 11th July 2024

As you are probably aware, there are three upcoming changes that will impact rail retailing in Sweden:

  1. SJ and the majority of the Swedish rail carriers are going live with new inventory systems, reservations, and ticketing. This will impact ticket sales booked as from April 16th for trips from June 4th onwards.
  2. Samtrafiken is going live with the National Distribution & Sales Solution (NDS). This will impact ticket sales booked as from April 16th for trips from June 4th onwards.
  3. SilverRail will distribute some of the content from the NDS as from 27th April (the ‘Start of Sales’) for trips from June 4th onwards.

If you have any questions about any of the changes, please email silverdesk.se@silverrailtech.com.
