Passengers can pay the metro and surface transport fare by bank cards and other gadgets with PayPass, PayWave, Apple Pay, Google Pay and Mir.
To pay, just tap your card or smartphone to the validator. The fare will be RUB 42.00, which is cheaper than that with a Unified Ticket.
Metro passengers using this method of payment can transfer to the MCC for free within 90 min, the same as with a regular ticket. ■
