On October 1, on-demand transportation service “On the way” began to work for the townspeople. It allows the passenger to order the bus at the exact stop that he needs. This is practically a taxi, only the cost of the trip is only 46 rubles. Now the service is available only to residents of several settlements of the TyNAO: Sosensky, Desenovsky, Voskresensky and Filimonkovsky.

They can select the desired stops in the mobile application “Moscow transport”… As part of the On the Way service, they will be served by 30 new comfortable buses. While transport follows to the metro station “Prokshino” and back. But over time, there will be more routes.

“On behalf of the Mayor, we are improving the transport accessibility of the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas. On October 1, after successful testing, the “On the way” transportation service appeared. For almost 90 thousand residents of four settlements in the district, travel to and from the metro will now become easier and faster. We expect the service to be popular. During testing alone, its participants made more than three thousand trips “, – said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Transport Maxim Liksutov.

The service is very easy to use. You need to download the mobile application “Moscow Transport” or update it, select the service “On the way”, then mark the point in its coverage area, from where you plan to start the trip. The app will advise the nearest stop to which you can walk. After that, you will need to specify the destination.

The average waiting time for a bus is 10–20 minutes. He will be at the stop for no more than two minutes, then the driver will set off on the route. Upon entering the bus, the passenger must scan a QR code to confirm boarding the vehicle.

In fact, this is a door-to-door transport. Comfortable and modern buses are equipped with seats with seat belts, USB connectors for charging gadgets, climate control, and a TV.
