Unfortunately, bus stops at Nørreport Station are not numbered/labelled, however the departure stop for both of the buses above is the same and is located next to the traffic lights at the intersection of Nørre Voldgade and Gothersgade. You can find a photograph of the relevant bus stop in the PDF file at the bottom of the page. 

When you get off the bus at the Arresøgade stop on Tagensvej, you should keep walking along Tagensvej in the direction the bus was travelling until you see the COBIS flags on your right hand side.

A picture of the Tagensvej entrance to the COBIS building is shown in the PDF file at the bottom of the page. The receptionists at COBIS can assist you with information on how to get to our office.
