0:37
Moscow Metro and all in fact any Moscow
0:39
public transportation we need a troika

0:55
and so the future is here guys we don’t
0:58
have to use cash if you’ll want to you
1:00
can use any sort of credit cards
1:02
including I think Samsung pay and Apple
1:04
pay – yep the future really is you see
1:07
the thing is when you will get your card
1:09
you have to tell them how much money you
1:10
want to leave on the card the card
1:12
itself cost about a buck we’ll see but
1:15
surely Sepultura oh thank you very
1:18
polite but anyways now we’ve got our
1:20
card we’ve got a couple rides on it
1:22
let’s go explore Moscow so now that
1:25
we’ve got our card everything is really
1:27
easy all you do is press your card
1:29
against this here yellow circle on this
1:31
screen it will show you how much money
1:32
you have left on the card for a brief
1:34
moment
1:34
looks like turns green and the gates
1:36
open just like this boom
1:40
and we’re in let’s go so right now it’s
1:45
the middle of the day it’s pretty calm
1:46
on the escalators as you can see not
1:48
that many people what happens during
1:50
rush hour was totally packed and totally
1:51
crowded well there’s a rule stand to the
1:54
right past the left story just over for
1:57
Aditya sliver if you don’t want to get
1:59
hit sometimes people fly down the
2:00
left-hand side
2:04
according some people the escalators in
2:07
Moscow are like super fast or something
2:08
I don’t even notice but maybe I’ve just
2:10
lived here a long time but be careful at
2:13
the end of the escalator ride take the
2:14
time think about we’re going to step
2:15
according my mother these are the fast
2:17
escalators on the planet so here we are
2:27
in the Metro as well this beautiful
2:31
table folding architecture
2:35
where are we going how do we get them we
2:38
know each car on the train
2:41
there are couple posters printed out the
2:43
posters just twentieth century we have
2:45
in our hand the 21st century the Moscow
2:49
Metro app which if you click on a nice
2:52
map of the Metro and this will allow you
2:54
to be able to search where you’re going
2:56
how to get there efficiently it’ll even
2:58
tell you in English and other languages
2:59
about the history of different subway
3:02
stations which is fantastic it’s going
3:05
to download go get it and so what do
3:07
those magic letters say there’s another
3:09
important rule of the Metro that every
3:12
seat in the Metro for the handicapped
3:13
will be elderly women with children and
3:16
pregnant women so if you’re sitting down
3:18
as a pregnant woman’s in front of you
3:19
guess what you’re being a cloud and
3:21
that’s against the rules and guess what
3:23
sometimes people say quote most people
3:25
do that and post them on the Internet
3:27
I’m not saying that happen to me I’m not
3:29
saying another expression stop and smell
3:36
the roses like you know you should take
3:38
time to enjoy life well that’s what that
3:40
encinia roses anywhere for I do see
3:41
awesome architecture look at how cool
3:44
this station is it’s like a gothic
3:46
futuristic capito and that my friends
3:48
pays off

[Music]
4:00
those are wonderful metro voices
4:02
sometimes the winner sometimes our man
4:04
and believe me that’s not because it’s
4:06
reversing goggles to help you tell we
4:08
are going even if you’re been a hard
4:09
year of hearing and you don’t really
4:11
speak Russian you can know one thing the
4:16
male voices mean you’re either going
4:18
downtown or you’re going clockwise on
4:21
the ring line if it’s a female voice
4:23
that means you’re going back home away
4:25
from downtown or you’re going
4:27
counterclockwise see there’s a system to
4:30
it all very logical it sure helps if you
4:33
don’t even speak Russian
4:41
so here we are at our final destination
4:43
my favourite metro station mythril
4:46
Komsomolskaya no station embodies Soviet
4:50
power military and political center the
4:53
station so cool love the mosaics love
4:56
the GOL but anyways it’s not one of the
4:58
reason we’re here to learn
5:00
but in our last video about the electric
5:02
stuff guess what you built that 50
5:04
meters up there
5:06
we’re going to plug this station is 3
5:08
different train stations and you’ll
5:10
probably use if you come visit Moscow
5:12
but tomorrow I’ve got to go to work oh
5:15
my gosh I’ve got to go to work and then
5:17
I got a foot money on my credit card
5:19
but questions hope we do that let’s do
5:21
that together
5:22
then we’ll say goodbye so how does one
5:25
put money on their card or you can do it
5:27
the traditional way go over to where
5:28
those cashiers and give them money or
5:30
you can use this terminal red metal box
5:33
thing over here so here we go
5:36
so first put the en button at the top to
5:39
switch to English here we go recharge
5:42
card troika not the best English but it
5:45
makes sense so here we go please wait
5:48
and now we insert our card right there
5:51
sometimes a little tricky to get it in
5:53
there you need the right feeling for it
5:54
but anyways okay so I have 39 rubles on
5:57
my card that’s a little over one ride
5:59
not good
5:59
let’s just top up your e-wallet okay
6:04
let’s top it up you have some options
6:05
you could pay with a credit card you can
6:07
put bills in here
6:08
but I’m just going to throw in some old
6:10
coins of mine and putting coins in
6:15
alright and says now we click top up
6:18
your balance all right come on top
6:21
yourself off there
6:23
so anyways there you go
6:27

6:29
card and I got rid of some much unneeded
6:32
