The calculator can be found on the webpage of the new overground metro system: http://mcd.mosmetro.ru/
“With the help of the fare calculator, Moscow residents and guests will be able to compare how much they now pay for travelling by rail suburban transport and how much they will pay after the opening of the MCD. The website will specify the cost of the trip on a specific route chosen by the user,” - shared Maxim Liksutov, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for transport.
In order to compare the cost of travelling, you need to open the diameters diagram and build a route. The website will count how many minutes a trip in this direction will indicate the cost. For example, it will be possible to ride the first diameter from Odintsovo station to Belorusskaya station for 45 rubles with the Wallet tariff of the Troika smart card.
Moreover, it will be indicated: "The current cost of the trip is 69 rubles." Thus, after the opening of a new mode of public transport, passengers will be able to save 24 rubles per trip from Odintsovo station to Belorusskaya station.
Additionally, when building a route, the user will be reminded of the validation rules for a ticket: if you do not attach a ticket to the terminal when leaving the diameter platform, a free transfer to the Metro and the Moscow Central Circle will be unavailable.
The MCD Suburb zone ride will cost 45 rubles, and the MCD Far zone fare will consist of two components – 45 rubles and 23 rubles for each zone outside the MCD. Moreover, if a passenger pays with the Troika card, there is a free interchange to the Moscow Metro and the Moscow Central Circle stations”, - explained the Deputy Mayor.
The launch of the first Moscow Central Diameters is scheduled for the end of 2019. Then public transport will become more accessible for 3.7 million residents of Moscow and the Moscow region. The first two Diameters will improve transport accessibility of more than 45 districts of Moscow and 6 regional cities. Thanks to MCD-1 and MCD-2, more than 900 thousand new passenger seats per day will appear on trains.
The Moscow Central Diameters webpage opened on the Moscow Metro website in late August. The service helps future passengers of the Diameters to explore the MCD routes. Using the website, passengers can calculate how long their trip from home to the theater, park or office will take. There are also a list of all transfers from the Diameters to other modes of transport, opening hours of the MCD and information about the Ivolga trains that will carry passengers of the first two diameters. Passengers are welcome to ask questions through the feedback form.
It is planned to launch the the MCD by the end of this year. There will be 66 stations at the MCD-1 and the MCD-2. At 27 of them, passengers can make transfers to the metro, the Moscow Central Circle (MCC) and the radial suburban trains. The MCD will operate from 05:30 AM to 01:00 AM, as the Moscow Metro does. The peak hours headway will not exceed five to six minutes.
Other diameters will appear in the future. In particular, the possibility of creating routes that connect Zelenograd and Ramenskoye, Aprelevka and Zheleznodorozhny, as well as Pushkino and Domodedovo is being considered. The Moscow Central Diameters will connect different directions of the Moscow railway. Thanks to the new overground, passengers will be able to cross the capital in 40 minutes.
