S-tog (エス・トウ)と呼ばれている鉄道が市内と近郊とを結んで走行している。赤い電車として親しまれているが、
車両内部の幅がきわめて大きい。これで標準軌道をちゃんとすれ違えるのか心配になるほどである。連結器近くの
車内電光掲示案にはその電車の停車する駅名がずらりと並んでおり、通過する度に一つづつ消えて行く。アナウンス
はデンマーク語なので目的地を乗り過ごさないように表示を注視せねばならない。車両は犬、自転車、乳母車などの
乗れるセクションと乗れないセクションとがある。外部ドアに自転車の標識があれば自転車OKである。田舎の駅
では鉄道ホームが道路と緩いスロープ直結しているので、電車を降りた後、そのまま直ぐにでもペタルを踏み込んで
サイクリングに出発する。電車のドアが自動で開かないときは、すぐ開閉ボタンを押して乗り降りすることも知って
おかねばならない。頻繁に電車を利用する人には24時間乗車券がある。

コペンハーゲン地下鉄、METRO はすべて自動運転であり、運転手はいない。しかし、スタッフが車両内または駅の
ホームに待機するとされている。 だが、地中のコンクリートチューブ(トンネル)を運転手のいない電車が高速で
走行することは、始めて乗るものには驚きであった。ラシュアワーには2分ごとに発着する。M1とM 2との二つの
系統があり、Christlanshavn 駅の少し先の地中で分岐している。M2 がコペンハーゲン国際空港、ターミナル3に
乗り入れている。2007年9月に完成した新しい路線である。運賃は空港から市内まで30DKKである。市内では
Norreport 駅でS-tog などと連絡している。
