In Vladivostok, another version of the unified transport card (UTC) for cashless fare payment appeared on sale - a sticker on the phone. The principle of its operation is the same as that of a traditional card, charm, or bracelet: you need to attach a sticker to the terminal installed in the cabin.
A sticker with a diameter of 4 cm is attached to the back of the cell phone with an adhesive surface. Like a card, keychain, or bracelet, it has a built-in chip that allows you to send a payment signal to the terminal. You can refill the balance of the sticker at an ATM, the mobile application "transport card Vladivostok" or online bank. Each sticker has an identification number for this purpose.
"There is always a demand for all types of UTC offered, even though the majority of public transport passengers in Vladivostok have already purchased a convenient payment instrument," commented the "Automated Dispatch Center.” - New passengers appear, someone has lost his card, keychain, or bracelet and acquires new ones, so the production of payment instruments is ongoing at a specialized factory in Novosibirsk.
