Moscow Metro launches public biometric ticketing trial

3 august 2021

Passengers using Moscow Metro’s Line 4 services can now join a public pilot scheme to test the transport network’s FacePay biometric contactless ticketing system, according to NFC World.

The system enables passengers to pay their fares at metro station turnstiles using facial recognition technology to verify their identity and authenticate payment from their linked bank card.

The public trial follows testing by Moscow Metro staff and will initially involve a group of 1,000 passengers who sign up and register their details on the transit provider’s FacePay website.

„Dupa ce oamenii creeaza un cont PayByFace si au adaugat cardul, selfi-ul si PIN-ul, si au avut un pic de curaj sa se duca sa incerce, daca au incercat o data plata prin recunoastere faciala nu mai folosesc altceva (n.r. ca modalitate de plata). 80% dintre ei numai asta folosesc. Le place la nebunie.”
