Moscow Metro ticket barriers allow passengers to enter the station after they present a valid ticket. There are two types of turnstiles. The newer ones have gates that are closed by default and open once a ticket is validated. Gates of the older models are normally open and close only when a passenger tries to go through without a ticket. In a long row of barriers it’s not always clear which gates belong to which turnstile.
To make sure people instantly find their way from a short distance, a simple and elegant solution was implemented. A sticker with an arrow and a brief text description is attached to the top of each turnstile.
The stickers will soon appear on all Moscow Metro ticket barriers.
