Over 200 scanners to read the tickets from the mobile application installed on the stations of the Leningrad direction of the Oktyabrskaya railway (OZHD) in October 2019, reported the press service of the JSC “MT PPK”.
“In October MTPC installed more than 200 additional external scanners on the turnstiles located at the stations of the Moscow — Tver. Due to this passengers with tickets in a mobile application through the turnstile lines will become much faster”, — stated in the message.
As noted by the first Deputy General Director of JSC “MT PPK” Andrey Filatov, was quoted by the press service, the installation of additional scanners is dictated by the growing popularity of buying tickets on commuter trains within the application “Russian Railways Passengers”.
“Before the scanner stood on one, sometimes on two turnstiles in the line, and that was enough. Then it became apparent that passengers with tickets in smartphones started to stand in line only to need them the turnstile. This was contrary to the idea of saving time when purchasing tickets online, and we increased the number of external scanners on each turnstile lines several times. The ability to pass through the turnstiles with the ordinary tickets still remain,” — he explained.
The press service reminded that mobile application “Russian Railways Passengers” allows to issue a single ticket “there” or “there and back” on any suburban trains of the Moscow — Tver — Bologoe, as well as on the retro-train “Seliger”. The app is available for free download on smartphones with operating systems iOS and Android. The purchased ticket is displayed on the screen in the form of a QR code to attach to external scanner at the turnstile. For the convenience of passengers in the app you can save your favorite routes — this saves time when purchasing the ticket. All tickets in the application “Russian Railways Passengers” are being implemented without extra charges and additional fees. In addition to the payment by credit card, the app supports instant payment with Apple Pay and Google Pay.
