Cash-free on the Upptåget Train from April 1
From April 1, the Upptåget train will be cash-free. This means that no cash is handled by personnel on board buses and trains in the UL service.
From April 1, the Upptåget train will be cash-free. This means that it is no longer possible to buy a single ticket from the train attendant and pay with cash. As early as 2010, all buses in the UL service became cash-free after a decision by the Swedish Work Environment Act. By the Upptåget train now also becoming cash-free it is the same throughout the whole UL service.
“We see the number of single tickets paid with cash decreasing while more people are using the UL app to pay for their train tickets," says Nikodemus Kyhlén who is sales manager at UL.
“Purchasing their ticket before going on board the train and paying with travel funds in the app or UL card means that they get the best fare for a single ticket which has certainly contributed to the development," says Nikodemus Kyhlén.
There are a number of alternatives to purchasing their ticket on board the train. Beside the UL app it is also possible to purchase tickets at all stations that are served by the Upptåget train and pay with the UL card’s travel funds. There are ticket machines in Gåvle, Tierp, Storvreta, Uppsala and Sala which also take credit/debit cards.
It will also continue to be possible to purchase single tickets on board the train and pay by credit/debit card or the UL card’s travel funds.
