Over 50 million rides have been taken on the Moscow Central Circle in the first six months of 2017. And the MCC is becoming more popular: in June, it carried almost 9 million passengers.
The MCC opened in September 2016; it carries over 370,000 people daily. For many people, the MCC has cut the number of interchanges and travel time by 50 percent.
Passengers can use 31 stations with 14 interchanges to the metro and six interchanges to suburban commuter trains. Each MCC station has transfers to city buses, trolleybuses and trams. Over 77 million trips have been taken on the MCC since its opening.
The MCC routes are operated by new electric trains with air conditioners, power outlets, bio toilets and free Wi-Fi. Riders can pay with standard tickets, bank cards or NFC wireless data transfer. Innovative services, such as Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Android Pay are also available.
Passengers can also use the Moscow Metro app to plan a route using the metro, the MCC and other kinds of public transit. The app also features short videos on how to transfer from the metro to the MCC, as well as photos and the history of the stations.
