RZD Passengers app supplemented by another secure payment service

The Russian Railways Holding, VTB Bank and Mastercard have integrated the secure payment service Masterpass into the app for purchasing tickets through RZD Passengers. The service for storing details is protected by the Mastercard security system.

Passengers using this service have received another way to pay quickly and easily for their train ticket purchases online.

Masterpass users need to save the card in the service just once in order to use it to pay for ticket purchases through the RZD Passengers app and other sites connected to Masterpass.

“The digital services that we offer our passengers make travel by rail more convenient, starting from the first stage of choosing and buying their tickets. Thanks to the new functions of the RZD Passengers app, which we have introduced in cooperation with our partners, passengers can book and pay for tickets with just a few clicks. At the same time, our work on new options never stops, not least because of the ongoing feedback we receive from our clients,” said Dmitry Pegov, Deputy Managing Director at Russian Railways

“The integration of the Masterpass service into the Russian Railways mobile app will speed up significantly the process of purchasing train tickets online. For our part, we are ready to ensure the uninterrupted operation of the service so that the process of purchasing tickets is convenient and secure. Identification by the passenger’s mobile phone number will also simplify further purchases for users at other sites that are also connected to this service,” notes Aleksey Kirichek, Vice President and head of the Acquiring Department at VTB.

“The demand for digital payments among Russian users is growing constantly, so we are pleased to expand the scope of the Masterpass service and make the card payment process even easier and more convenient. I am sure that train passengers will appreciate this innovation,” comments Anton Shigapov, Vice President for Mastercard Digital Payments Development in Russia.
