Free Riders Have To Pay Fines

The total amount of fines for ticketless travel in the Moscow metro in the first quarter of 2014 amounted to more than 55 million rubles, Deputy Mayor of Moscow, the head of the Department of Transport and Road Infrastructure Development Maxim Liksutov said at operational meeting of the city government.

      He noted that unpaid rides on city’s ground and underground public transport still remains a serious problem. Mr. Liksutov explained that the most common violation is the attempt to break through the turnstiles without paying the fare. Since the beginning of this year, more than 42 thousand passengers were punished for this violation. He also said that in the first quarter more than 20 thousand passengers tried to get into the ground public transportation without payment. Mr. Liksutov noted that in Moscow since the beginning of the year the number of free riders, who are trying to use favorable or social cards for transportation, has decreased.
