It is not possible to pay for tickets in cash at any of the metro turnstiles on the Stockholm metro anymore. The measure is supposed to be temporary and it is due to an increase in robberies and break-ins. Cash payments will be made possible again once security measures have been boosted.

Electronic payment methods include the Stockholm Public Transport app, ticket machines or, by card, at the turnstiles. If customers prefer paying in cash, this will be still possible, simply buying their ticket from other vendors.
