By weight, this is comparable to 16 three-meter living firs. The main idea of the action is to encourage passengers not to buy paper tickets every time, but to use the Troika card and take care of the surrounding nature.[/perfectpullquote] [perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]If passengers like our paper tree, next year we will install the same tree from used tickets collected in one day, but we expect that thanks to the loyalty program it will be a meter lower[/perfectpullquote]
