Virtual Transport Card Troika Launched for Moscow Public Transport

December 17, 2021, 11:43 (UTC+3)|

The Troika virtual transport card has been launched in Moscow. It allows paying for all types of public transport in the city using an Android smartphone.

The Troika virtual card is available in the Moscow Metro app. While it is possible to subscribe for 30 days or have a unified pass (30, 90, and 365 days), the Wallet function is planned to be added next year.

To pay for travel using the virtual Troika, you need to bring your phone to the turnstile or validator with a special sticker about the possibility of accepting bank cards. To pay, you do not need to unlock your phone, enter passwords or use biometric data: the pass is executed automatically. To do this, you must first select Google Pay or Samsung Pay in the smartphone settings as the main method of contactless payment.
