Moscow Metro tests facial recognition payments

Moscow Metro is testing ‘Face Pay’ on its Filevskaya metro line.

The company said that it has trialled the facial recognition technology on 1000 people so far.

The organisation will gradually add all the metro lines to the test , with the aim of eventually making the service available at all stations.

It assured customers that the service is not mandatory.

“We are starting the most important phase of testing the Face Pay project - with passengers,” said Maxim Liksutov, deputy Moscow mayor and head of the department for transport and road infrastructure development. “Metro employees are already using this service and have completed more than one million successful passes at the station.”
