At the first stage of its test launch, the Face Pay system will be available for 1000 passengers at the stations of the Filevskaya line of the Moscow Metro. Turnstiles supporting this fare payment method are marked with a special sticker on the floor.

The use of biometrics will become an additional, but not mandatory option when passing the metro. The technology will be gradually introduced on other lines and will become available at all stations by the end of this year.
