Express Card™ — Your Bank card with your Metro and Mosgortrans ticket inside
No more queuing for your metro tickets – life has just become easier
Express Card™ is a bank card that has a contactless smart card that allows you to pay for your metro or ground travel in Moscow. All you have to do is place your card on the turnstile reader at the Metro station or in any kind of Mosgortrans transport and your bank account will be billed at the end of the month for any trips that you have taken.
The more rides you make, the cheaper they become – because, Express Card totals all of your travels for the month and your bank calculates the price according to the relevant tariffs published by the Metro and Mosgortrans official sites. Therefore, the card automatically ensures that you qualify for the highest discount available for that particular month.
