Uppsala is a university town north of Stockholm.

Hitching around

If you are coming from the north and you want to continue hitchhiking, for example to Stockholm, make sure you don't get dropped off at the gas station Statoil Bärbyleden. There is a burger restaurant,too and it's located maybe a kilometre from the main highway. Only local traffic drives through there. This is probably the only gas station near Uppsala, so if your driver's destination is Uppsala, try to convinve him/her to drop you off one gas station before or after Uppsala.

Hitchhiking out

North

The northern E4 interchange is an ideal place to hitch cars heading north and possibly (but less likely) south too. From the central station, catch the bus 3 or 4 then change to bus 1 to reach the stop Uppsala Takpannegatan. Here there is a Circle K petrol station and many fast food outlet where cars from the highway stop. Walk over the grassy hill behind the Circle K and you are on the road leading to the interchange. There is plenty of space for cars to stop in the emergency lane, and traffic moves slowly thanks to the series of roundabouts. It is a good idea to use a sign as some traffic will be heading south.

South towards Stockholm

Hitch along the street Tycho Hedéns väg. Traffic is slow and drivers can pull over.
