By trainis located in the basement of the airport terminals. The first trains arrive and depart at 5AM.
- Vy (formerly Norwegian State Railways or NSB) operates trains from Gardermoen from or to all stations on the Norwegian railway network. There are trains both southwards towards the capital of Oslo and northwards towards stations such as Hamar, Lillehammer and Trondheim. Where there are no direct trains from the station, you have to change trains at Oslo S (Central Station). Vy trains to Oslo are slightly slower than the Airport express train, though the difference in travel time is only a few minutes considering the distance. From Oslo Central Station: kr 105 (one-way), 23 min. The one-way ticket includes about two further hours of transfer to Oslo's public transport network, Ruter.
Flytogetis the fastest option by train from or to Gardermoen towards Oslo S, F2 on to Nationaltheateret, Asker and Drammen. It costs more than NSB trains but runs more often. The simplest way to pay for the fare is to swipe a debit/credit card at the faregate's reader (found at the airport station). Alternatively, one can purchase a ticket online or using the mobile app and scan the barcode at the faregate reader. The website and app are also useful for creating an account and registering discounts one is eligible for (e.g. student, senior age fare). From Oslo Central Station: kr 196 (concession kr 98), 19-22 min. (Up to six trains an hour at peak times; first train from the airport at 05:30, last train 00:50.)
