Deputy Governor Krekov: the introduction of QR codes in public transport is being worked out in the Sverdlovsk region This was stated by the deputy governor of the region Pavel Krekov, he is quoted by RIA Novosti.
According to him, the authorities of the Russian region will study the experience of Tatarstan, which was the first in Russia to introduce digital documents for access to transport. For this, a special working group will be sent to the republic, consisting of employees of the Ministry of Public Security and the Ministry of Transport.
“This is a rather complicated mechanism and it includes not only municipal transport – trolleybuses, trams, route taxis. These are suburban trains and buses, “Krekov said.
Tatarstan was the first region in which QR codes were introduced for public transport. The new rules came into force on November 22 – documents are also checked when selling tickets. If a resident refuses to present the QR code, he will have to leave the vehicle. In the first day after the introduction of the new measures, more than 1000 passengers were dropped off the transport, many residents were in conflict with the controllers.
