No-touch ticket to Moscow

March 22, 2007
HF RFID inlays from UPM Raflatac of Finland will go in contactless passenger tickets for the Moscow Metro train.

The RFID inlays replace magnetic-stripe cards the train system now uses for tickets with a fixed number of journeys. Seasonal tickets already employ contactless RFID smart cards to speed up long passenger lines. The company is set to deliver 5 million inlays monthly, ramping up to about 30 million monthly by this summer. The Moscow Metro is one of the world's busiest metro trains. It carries 8.2 million passengers on a normal weekday.
