Face Pay biometric fare payment technology will be available at all stations of the Moscow Central Circle (MCC) in September this year. This was announced on Tuesday, July 26, by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Transport Maxim Liksutov.
Speaking about the prospects for the development of Face Pay, the deputy mayor noted that, according to a survey, 88 percent of users highly appreciate the technology and prefer this system to other payment methods.
According to him, it is planned to introduce at least 200 additional turnstiles that will accept payment by biometrics.
— In September, Face Pay will work at all MCC stations. Also this year, passengers on regular river routes will be able to pay for the trip using biometric data. Face Pay may also appear on Aeroexpress,” Liksutov was quoted as saying by the Telegram channel of the Moscow Department of Transport.
In addition, payment for biometrics with social cards is currently being discussed, including for students and schoolchildren, as well as the sale of subscriptions to corporate clients with payment for technology.
Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said the day before, on July 25, that today there are no analogues of the Face Pay service in terms of the scale of implementation, quality and ease of use for the passenger.
