The city is under construction.
Odense is a bike-friendly city with good public infrastructure. Buses pass by every hour and the main station is located at Østre Stationsvej. The municipality of Odense has invested 1 billion DKK in a new train similar to those in London, so the city centre is currently (as of 2016) under reconstruction. They still don’t know when it will be completed.
If you’re considering taking a bus, taxi, or car when going to work or school you should always consider whether or not it’s rush hour. While not bad in Odense compared to other cities, there are loads of cars on the roads between 7.30 – 9.30 and 15.00 – 17.00. If you take the bus it will often be on time, but driving by yourself can be a challenge.
Odense is not divided in zones so the bus system is quite easy to figure out. You can find a map at every station and go on your computer or phone if you need any help. ‘Rejseplanen’, which is both a website and app, can be really helpful if you get confused. If you want to have a better overview of the trains and buses you should download the DSB and FynBus mobilbillet apps; these can also make it much easier to buy your tickets.
