Note! Since February 1 you need to register at http://sl.se/sms in order to buy tickets from SL (Storstockholms Lokaltrafik).
Just choose price level and which zones you would like to travel within and the app will show the price (excluding mobile carrier texting fees). The ticket is displayed directly in the app.
Some SMS-apps (e.g. Handcent SMS, GO SMS Pro and Facebook Messenger) can prevent the ticket from being displayed in the app. If this happens just look for the ticket among your received SMS messenges.
