The public transport system (Ruter) is very good and will get you anywhere around town easily. Buy a Oslo Pass if you plan to stay for a few days and visit museums, or you can buy a 7 day ticket from Ruter for 240 NOK (for zone 1, which is covering all of the city, even out to Nordmarka for hiking). Study the metro map, if you can take the metro it is by far the quickest. If you also like to get some sightseeing, take the tram. There are also some convenient bus lines, for instance bus 20 between Skøyen and Galgeberg (west to east). Go to www.ruter.no where you can find all info you need, and a route planner. Download the apps Ruter Billett (for tickets) and Ruter Reise (for route planning). You can also buy the 7-day ticket from the app. Make sure you have enough battery on your phone, but I've heard they now have chargers available when they have a ticket control, in case you should spend to much time on Pokemon Go ;)

I'd also recommend the city bike system, Bysykkel, which has plenty of stations in central Oslo.

Search for the app "Oslo City Bike", which is the handiest way of purchasing your seasonal or short-term access, and checking in and out a bike (you can also check in and out a bike on the on the stations themselves).

Yep, you just download the app RuterBillett (the red one with the white hashtag). There you can get tickets for one hour, 1 day, several days - whatever you need. You pay in the app and need to have battery on your phone if there is a control.

Navigation you can find in the other app, RuterReise (the black one with the white hashtag).

All tickets include bus, tram abd boat. (Take the boat from The City hall / Rådhuskaia)

Hi, you get around Oslo walking, or by using the ruter app to get the tube or a tram or a bus. https://ruter.no/en/ . Taxi is Oslo is far to expensive, locals only use it to get home after a late night.

Great answer below. The ruter app is so easy to use. However, I have to say...for city center, theres no reason to hop on a bus. EVERYTHING is walking distance. youre no more than 20 mins away. Its small... Since Ive moved here, i havent taken transport. its very walkable. Unless im in a real rush, ill hop on a tram. Im saying this because it does get expensive. Why blow money on walking distance? You can even have a nice walk from center to frogner/sculpture park. Or to grunerlokka where the cool kids hang out. haha Or hop on a city bike.
