Aeroexpress railway was recently named one of the best transportation companies in Russia by Best.ru.
The annual "Best of..." awards celebrate companies, individuals, organizations and events that were examples of excellence in their respective sectors of the economy.
Aeroexpress was commended for its Pay@Gate system. The system allows passengers to pay train fare at the gate and requires no contract, thus making the process of getting transit tickets smother and more efficient. This allows the company to take on more passengers and streamline the entire payment process. The system, which currently only accepts Visa cards, was introduced in August 2013.
The company said more than 115,000 tickets were purchased through the system in the first 10 months of this year.
Commercial director of Aeroexpress, Rustam Akiniyazov, noted that the system is very popular among passengers, and the company will expand it to be able to accept more types of credit and bank cards.
