Starting from September 15, Moscow city authorities plan to double the number of Moscow Metro stations with Face Pay system and by October 15 the system should work on all stations.
As for the beginning of September, 15 thousand people have already submitted their biometric data. The system allows writing off funds from a bank card account, as well as from the Troika electronic card. The turnstiles that support the new technology are marked with a round black sticker on the floor.
In early August 2021, Moscow Metro launched a pilot version of Face Pay system, available for 1000 passengers at the stations of the Filevskaya line of the Moscow Metro. At the moment, the system is available on the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya, Solntsevskaya, Filevskaya and Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya lines.
