Tourists in the Kyiv metro will no longer be able to use the machines for the sale of tokens. At stations, the outdated equipment is removed, and those machines that are still on their places, are stuck with white papers. Now you can go through the turnstile to the station only by means of contactless payments or by buying a token at the box office.
What’s the matter?
The metro is fully transferred to contactless payments in order to avoid queues and crowds at the station. From November 2019, tokens will be completely out of use. To this transition was not too sharp, the management of the subway decided to sell first one token in one hand, then slowly start to remove the machines. Soon Kyiv metro will work in a new format.
