Baku Metro not to use new coins instead of jetons

“The Baku Metro Production Association (PA) does not intend to use new 5 gapik (250 AZM) instead of jetons for payment of fare,” Elbrus Muradov, the chief engineer of the Baku Metro, told Trend. He was commenting the information spread by mass media.

According to Muradov, 5-gapik jetons will be used in the subway after the denomination. They work on application of chip cards, which will be used along with jetons.

The chip cards are used at Baku Metro from April 2005. An experimental device for reception of the cards was installed at Elmlar Akademiyasi subway station. The Baku Metro plans to install similar devices at other stations as well. The card costs $4 with 250-manat fare.

The International Bank of Azerbaijan is involved in the pilot project. Visa cards were issued by Azerikard Company.

The goal of the project is to cancel jetons in 2007 and determine real level of the state grants to the Baku Metro.

The Baku Metro transports 500,000 people in a day.
