According to the Moscow Department of Transport, a unified ticketing system based on the Moscow transport Troika card is implemented on public transport in 19 Russian regions. It was also announced that 5.5 million passengers in Russian regions used the Troika card for the fare payment since the beginning of the year.
Digitalization of public transport in the regions is the task set by the President of the Russian Federation. Today, SberTroika-based ticketing system is already in operation in 19 cities and regions of the country.
We see that passengers appreciate its convenience: over the four months of 2022, 5.5 million trips were paid with the Troika card. We are ready to continue sharing the technology with progressive regions where the leadership cares about the convenience of the residents and understands the importance of implementing modern solutions for the transport development, - said Maksim Liksutov, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Transport.
At present, SberTroika system is working on the transport card implementation in other regions of Russia and it is developing new solutions that will make payment more convenient.
The Moscow Department of Transport added that Troika is a convenient and environmentally friendly way to pay fare, since passengers do not have to buy a single ticket each time to access the transport. The Troika card can be topped up at Sberbank ATMs, as well as in mobile applications: the Moscow Metro and the Moscow Transport.
SberTroika is a joint venture of the Moscow Government and Sberbank that promotes the Moscow transport card Troika in Russian cities and regions. The expansion of the Troika card started in 2020 when it began to operate in Tula region.
In 2021, the project of integrating the Troika card-based ticketing system in Russian regions won the prestigious International Transport Ticketing Award 2021, where Moscow competed with projects from Singapore and Australia in the Best Smart Ticketing Programme category.
