Project implementation

This travel card was distributedthanks to the agreement between the Government of the Moscow Region, the organizations "Universal Electronic Card" and the State Unitary Enterprise "Mostransavto". We even had to create a special branch, the purpose of which was a single transport map "Strelka". The reviews showed that such a serious approach was worth the result. The same unit, which eventually became known as the "Unified Transport Card", was endowed with the duties of the operator. The project started on February 1, 2015.

The operator's job is as follows:

  • installation and maintenance of devices for reading transport cards;
  • issue of equity securities;
  • sale to direct customers of travel cards;
  • installation of equipment for reading transport cards in buses;
  • calculation of statistics (information is analyzed regarding the number of use of travel, social cards, one-time tickets, cashless payments, QR code).

To date, the unit "ETK"provided readers with the entire mobile structure of Mostransavto in order to use the Strelka transport card as efficiently as possible. Reviews say that this is not in vain, because it is used in various modes of transport, people moving several routes. This payment card is accepted for payment not only in urban modes of transport, but also in private fixed-route taxis. In addition to buses, a subscription card can be recorded on the card, giving the right to travel by electric trains in a variety of directions.

In the same year, when the project was launched, he wasnominated for the Formula of Motion Award. In the category "The best solution in the field of passenger transport," Strelka "became a laureate. This competition is aimed at improving the quality of service in the field of transportation services.

Tasks of the project

In Moscow, there are many types of travel for all occasions. So why do we need a single transport map of the Moscow region "Strelka"? The passengers' responses determined the range of tasks:

  • Formation of a generalized transport network in the Moscow region.
  • Collection and analysis of data obtained from the use of the map (this statistics helps "Mostransavto" determine the effectiveness of methods for regulating the market of passenger traffic).
  • Transition to non-cash payment of travel (this increases the transparency of the monetary transaction).
  • Tracking of tax collections in the budget.
  • Automation of access control and passenger extortion.
  • Providing a variety of options for replenishing the card.
  • The introduction of a flexible system of discounts, helping users to save money.

Places of purchase

What distinguishes the "Strelka" travel card (reviews of passengers prove this advantage), so this is the most diverse ways of acquiring. These include:

  • Booths located next to the stops, which sell all types of tickets (a total of such sales points, there are about six thousand).
  • Directly from the driver or conductor of the vehicle.
  • In the stores of cellular communication "Euroset" and "Svyaznoy".
  • In the post offices.

In general, we can say that to buy this cardcan be anywhere, where there is an inscription "Here is sold the map" Arrow ". You need to have a document proving your identity, and two hundred rubles. This amount includes a pledge in the amount of eighty rubles, and the remaining money is put on the current account. After the expiration of the validity, that is, after five years, the security deposit can be returned. But, given the inflation rate for this period, of course, it will turn into a penny.

Tariff plans

How does it help to save the "Arrow" (map)? Reviews say that such a loyalty program is beneficial for numerous trips. Tariff system has a time frame - this is one calendar month, during which the price with each subsequent trip will decrease. After the tenth use of the travel cost will decrease by two rubles, after the twentieth - two more, and so on. The lowest price can reach 27.22 rubles.

Not everyone considers the Strelka map as an effective project. The feedback from some people is quite negative. Many people consider the loyalty program too low. But the developers found the answer to this problem. From this year, the discount will be calculated from the cost of the trip not in a fixed number - two rubles, and in a percentage. First the fare will decrease by seven percent, the maximum discount can increase to thirty-five.

This is especially beneficial for passengers with long-termor reusable routes. That is, the principle of the system is that the more time you spend in transport, the less you have to pay for it.

According to the old system, the discount for a trip over eighty-two and a half kilometers was ten rubles. Now the economy on such a long route reaches fifty-five monetary units.

There is an interesting point in usingtravel "Arrow" (map). The feedback from many users suggests that it is very beneficial for him to travel together. However, by law, a person should not transfer his transport card to another person.

It is worth remembering that the price of one passageincreases depending on the number of crossed areas. For every two and a half kilometers four more rubles are added. But it is in any case cheaper than a one-time ticket purchased from the driver.

Methods of replenishment

It should be noted that the smallest amount of replenishmentequals ten rubles, the largest - five thousand for the travel "Arrow" (map). The reviews are simply full of gratitude for such a wide possibility of replenishment:
