- Can I pay for friend’s fare and still use my 90 Minute ticket if it’s all done within 90 minutes?
Remember that it is forbidden for more than one person to use the same ticket on trolleybuses, buses, and trams. According to the Moscow Government Decree of 02.09.2008 No. 797-PP (amended on 20.11.2012) “on the confirmation of passenger rules for surface transport (trams, trolleybuses, buses) in the city of Moscow,” each passenger must have his own ticket and is obliged to present it at the request of a controller. To avoid misuse of the 90 Minute ticket there is an enforced time lag between each boarding (touch-in) of trams, buses, and trolleybuses. Passengers can transfer between modes of ground transport in the space of 90 minutes without restrictions but may not pay for other people’s transfers. After boarding a tram, bus, or trolleybus your ticket will be blocked for 3 minutes.
