Sweden mulls over national ticketing system for all public transport

Sweden is investigating how to introduce a national ticketing system for all public transport throughout the country. The inquiry was officially appointed on Friday and announced in a government statement.

Minister for Infrastructure Tomas Eneroth and Minister for the Environment Isabella Lovin said a national ticketing system would make it easier for people to make climate-smart choices when it comes to commuting and travel.

“Traveling by public transport is climate smart and we know that more and more travelers want to be able to choose sustainable transport. A national ticketing system will make it easier to choose a bus, train or ferry,” said Eneroth…

The transport sector has proved a sticking point in Sweden’s ambitious emissions reduction targets, with emissions from road traffic increasing between 2018 and 2019, according to the Swedish Transport Administration.
