In addition to buying tickets for single or return journeys, customers can replenish their “Troyka” cashless network card. The new kiosks accept banknotes or contactless credit cards.
Ian Crosby, Sales and Marketing director of Zytronic, concluded, “We’re delighted to support Elatec and PSS on this high profile public installation. This project demonstrates a number of benefits that Zytronic and its touch technology can offer designers of self-service equipment. The screens are able to resist damage and vandalism while performing reliably in the most extreme weather conditions. It also underlines the flexibility of our manufacturing process – being able to supply small quantities of specially designed touchscreens each time the customer upgrades a location. The Moscow commuters response to the new PSS machines has been exceptionally positive, which really reinforces the benefits of a touch screen interface.”
