Moscow’s ‘On the Way’ on-demand transport service – the first mobility-on-demand transport service in Russia – has become available for the residents of the fifth district of New Moscow .
The second stage of the ‘On the Way’ service was launched on 1 November 2021 in the New Moscow district. The service has become available for the residents of the Ryazanovskoe settlements in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative districts. Currently, more than 20,000 people have been given an opportunity to use the first Russian mobility-on-demand service and to reach the Silikatnaya MCD station.
Personalised transportation doesn’t depend on a schedule and allows passengers to build flexible routes. The system of the service is quite simple: the user calls the bus through the Moscow Transport application, indicates departure and destination points, and receives a message with coordinates of the nearest place of order. The arrival of the bus is carried out within half an hour. The number of bus stations was increased thanks to the extended work area of the service. Moreover, the quantity of virtual stations has also increased in order to make service easier and faster.
“We see that Moscow citizens like the mobility-on-demand service. We carefully read, work through all the ideas and collaborate with passengers on their suggestions. That is why we decided to launch the second stage of the service for the residents of the Ryazanovskoye settlement. Now, more than 20,000 people will be able to use the mobility-on-demand service, ‘On the Way’, and to get to the Silikatnaya MCD station and back. Moreover, we also increased the number of buses by 15 cars. The development of the ‘On the Way’ service is relevant, especially during the pandemic, when it is extremely important to drive safely around the city,” said Maksim Liksutov, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Transport.
