The Troika card can now be used to enter Europe’s largest skating rink. The admission charge will be deducted from the card credit. The offer is only valid for adult tickets and visitors with their own skates.
“Troika is the key to the city now. It can be used to pay fares on the metro, the Moscow Central Circle, ground public transit, Aeroexpress airport train, parking in Zaryadye Park, and to buy tickets and travel cards on commuter trains. From now on, Troika credit can be used at the fast track entrance of the VDNKh skating rink to skip the queues. The fast track entrance is open at weekends and public holidays,” commented Maxim Liksutov, Deputy Mayor for Transport.
The Moscow Zoo is also accepting Troika cards for admission this winter.
Nowadays, 90 percent of Moscow public transit passengers use their Troika cards to pay fares. Over 16.7 million travel cards have been sold so far. There are 50,000 remote and direct Troika top-up points in the city. Moscow Metro mobile app can also be used to top up the travel card and buy tickets.
Loyalty programme will be introduced this year with more benefits for Troika card holders who will be able to collect points and use them to pay in cafes, restaurants, cinemas and online stores.
