Controllers May Patrol Moscow Metro Passengers

In 2013 special controllers may start patrolling the Moscow Metro passengers for tickets. Passengers will be expected to carry their ticket with them at all times, while on the Underground.

      The move comes in a bid to clamp down on metro fares offenders who, despite tough surveillance from the existing police force on the underground, still manage to sneak to the metro without a pass.

      Those passengers who had to buy a single ticket will need to carry it with them until they leave the metro - otherwise how can they prove that they did not get on the underground without a pass? 

      290 controllers will look after the Moscow Metro passengers, if the initiative is upheld. As a result, the ticket urns that presently by the station entrance may disappear, lest passengers dispose of their tickets too soon.
