No more cash tickets

Ticket machines at the train station are on the verge of being closed

The good old vending machine will soon be on the siding. Deutsche Bahn relies on cashless ticket models. From 2035, tickets should normally only be bought digitally.


Buying tickets with cash should soon be a thing of the past.

Two minutes until departure! Shoo, shoo onto the platform, dig a coin out of the sack. And buy a ticket at the machine. The colleague holds the door open for you. And: Oof! Made. The train is leaving. Still an everyday scenario between Geneva and Romanshorn TG. It will soon be a thing of the past. Because cash will soon be obsolete in public transport.

Ticket sales at the machines is a phased-out model. “This option will not be completely abolished for the time being. It is conceivable that there are still machines at major hubs or in external shops, »says René Schmied in an interview with the «Aargauer Zeitung». He is President of the Alliance Swiss Pass Strategy Council and Director of Bernmobil, the public transport company in Bern.
