"Electronic controllers" bring substantial income to the capital
With the use of the automated travel control system "ASKP" on buses in Solntsevo and Novoperedelkino collections of travel payment for February of the current year compared with last February were 177 percent. This figure was presented by the chairman of Moscow City Duma Vladimir Platonov at a press conference on Thursday.
Let us recall, that in the regions of Solntsevo and Novoperedelkino ASKP was introduced in the 14 buses of five routes starting from February 1 this year. As Platonov joked, "many passengers were surprised to learn that they had to pay to travel." Installed, in buses, elements of ASKP would make it some more difficult to enter the salon, but "it is the thing of habit," he added.
New tickets for the bus are like cards with magnetic strips. Single trip when buying a ticket for 1-4 "boarding" would cost the passenger 7 rubles. With the purchase of a ticket for 5 trips it will cost 6 rubles, and for 10 trips - 5 rubles.
Right now there is no timetable for installing ASKP in the capital. But in the end "they will be everywhere," said Platonov.
