Aeroexpress is fully integrated within the Moscow transport network and even offers its passengers a respective fare called ‘Plus Metro’, which includes one Aeroexpress trip and one journey by metro, bus, trolleybus, or tram.
Such tickets are valid for five days, including the purchase date. Along with this fare, there is an option to pay for travel on the red trains using the Troika card. The company implemented this new payment feature in November 2014, together with the Moscow Metro, and with the support of the Transport Department.
World Car Free Day is an initiative encouraging people to give up their cars and use more eco-friendly and fuel-free transport means, the most popular of which are trains and bicycles.
“As our office is located at Sheremetyevo Airport, I prefer to travel to the city on our trains. This is the only way I can be sure that I will be in the city centre in exactly 35 minutes,” says Alexey Sorokin, Chief Operating Office of Aeroexpress. “I often go down to the Moscow metro. It has recently become more comfortable and modern.”
“For me, Aeroexpress is a place of work and a type of corporate transport that helps me to get to work fast and in comfort, bypassing traffic jams and saving me time,” explains Natalya Vinogradova, an Aeroexpress employee. “Besides, when travelling on Aeroexpress and seeing passengers’ reactions, I can judge how well I and my colleagues have performed our work.”
