What does Mälartåg mean in practice to me?
From 12 December, you can travel the route Uppsala – Arlanda / Märsta with Mälartåg on your UL ticket. This means that you get more departures to choose from, previously you could only travel with the SL commuter train to Arlanda on the UL ticket.

The UL ticket is only valid on that route. But you can of course buy a Mälartåg ticket between Arlanda / Märsta and Stockholm and further out into Mälardalen.
