I is foreign-Swedish on visit in Stockholm. When I was out in the archipelago and would ride the bus I ran in to a problem. It was not possible to pay for a ticket on board. The nearest ticket machine low 7.5 km from the bus stop.
I had no other choice than to return to my accommodation and take the car. Why can you not pay on the bus as in many other countries? In my hometown of Toronto, can I still pay with cash.
grew up in Sweden and have visited the country each year under the age of 35. Despite the fact that I van flyer I experience it as complicated to get around as a visitor.
In the centre of Stockholm there are vending machines in many places, but it becomes sparser outside the city centre. I have received the help of friendly fellow travellers to be able to buy a ticket, and my experience is that even the other travellers suffer.
Older people who do not have internet and smart phones have told us how their nearest bus stop is located a few dozen meters from the gate but they have to go several hundred meters to buy a ticket in a vending machine or at a retailer.
the purchase of 10,000 metres up in the air in an airplane, but not buy a ticket on board a bus.
If the city of Stockholm makes it easy to pay for more to find that travel by public transport is a good option, and it makes it easier for everyone – whether you live here or are traveling as a tourist.
