From Sunday, April 26, due to the low load, the Moscow metro will temporarily close the halls of 13 stations. In some lobby areas that are planned to be closed, passengers are 93% less than they were before the introduction of the self-isolation regime.
It is reported by RIA Novosti with reference to the press service of the metro.
It is reported that the stations will continue to operate, but entry and exit will only be through working vestibules.
The lobby list, which will be closed, included, among others, the Vladykino and Fonvizinskaya lobbies, where even in the morning peak hours there were less than 120 passengers.
From April 14, the separate vestibules of 20 Moscow metro stations were closed.
From April 21, the sale of single tickets in the Moscow metro stopped - all trips are carried out only on the Troika electronic card with digital passes tied to it.
You can pay by public transport only with the Troika, Strelka electronic card or a social card. It is also necessary to bind a digital pass to them when it is received.
The restriction was introduced after Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin tightened his isolation regime in the capital. Now, in order to leave the house, each person needs to obtain a digital pass on the State Service portal. For those who continue to work, passes are issued until the end of April. Citizens who want to go to the city, to the store or to the cottage are given a one-time pass.
