This will allow you to save more than 800 rubles a month on regular trips, or up to 10 thousand rubles a year.

In the capital, from September 1, fare payments based on tariff zones in ground transport of the Troitsk Administrative District will be canceled. Passengers will be able to use regular bus tickets. About it Sergei Sobyanin wrote on his blog.

“The ability to travel through the entire city with one ticket, without thinking about zones and tariffs, is a huge advantage of Moscow’s public transport in comparison with other megacities of the world. Today we have removed one of the few remaining exceptions to this rule. We will continue to improve the tariff system so that public transport becomes even more convenient and attractive for Muscovites, ”Sergei Sobyanin said.

For 70 thousand passengers who use ground transport every day, travel will become more profitable. So, for those who often travel by bus, the savings will amount to more than 800 rubles a month, or up to 10 thousand rubles a year.

After the expansion of the city, new territories were included in tariff zone B. When traveling within it, the fare is the same as in the rest of Moscow. But when leaving the Troitsky Administrative District to the territory of other districts of Moscow, 60 rubles had to be paid for a single trip (instead of 42 rubles). At the same time, the cost of the TAT travel pass for 30 days was 2070 rubles (instead of 1240 rubles).

“Formally, it made sense – it was about long routes that take passengers from remote settlements of New Moscow and take them to metro stations inside the Moscow Ring Road. However, the division into tariff zones is doing more harm than good today. There are long routes not only in New Moscow, but also inside the Moscow Ring Road. And it is not clear why some passengers pay at the regular rate, while others have to overpay for travel, ”said Sergei Sobyanin.

Paying for tariff zones reduced the popularity of public transport, and people preferred to use their own cars. In addition, conflicts with controllers could arise on the buses, since many passengers did not know about the specifics of payment.

For the convenience of residents in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas not only ground transport… Over the past four years, Rumyantsevo, Salaryevo, Filatov Lug, Prokshino, Olkhovaya and Kommunarka stations of the Sokolnicheskaya metro line, as well as Rasskazovka and Govorovo of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya line have been opened in the annexed territories … More than 90 thousand people use the stations every day (before the pandemic – 120 thousand people). Currently, the construction of the Troitskaya branch and the Pykhtino and Vnukovo stations of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya line continues.
