The system is already working in public transport in the Moscow and Tula regions.
It will be possible to pay for travel on public transport in Perm and Komsomolsk-on-Amur with the help of Troika. The decree on the allocation of 24.9 million rubles for the introduction of the Moscow transport card in these cities was signed at a meeting of the Presidium of the Moscow Government.
Since 2020, the Moscow government, together with the administrations of interested cities, has been implementing projects for the introduction of the Troika card to pay for travel in public transport. The system already works in public transport in the Tula region – over 755 thousand trips have been made with its help.
In the Moscow region “Troika” can pay for travel on 400 routes… From April 14, more than 300 routes will be added to them. In total, over five thousand vehicles are connected to the system.
More than 40 regions and cities of Russia expressed their interest in integrating their ticket systems based on the Troika card. Among them are the Vladimir, Murmansk, Leningrad, Rostov, Smolensk and Yaroslavl regions, as well as the cities of Sochi and Ulyanovsk.
Thanks to the introduction of the Troika card, residents of the regions have the opportunity to use public transport more comfortably both at home and when traveling to Moscow. Muscovites have similar opportunities when they travel to other regions.
