In the coming years, construction of the metro and Moscow Central Diameters will continue in the capital, the fleet of electric buses will be expanded and the network of ground transport routes will be improved.
Moscow is one of the world leaders in terms of the speed of vehicle fleet renewal. Public transport is becoming more and more popular and continues to develop. Sergei Sobyanin wrote about this on his page on the social network “Instagram”.
Since 2011, 56 new metro stations have opened, the Moscow Central Circle (31 stations) and Moscow Central Diameters (60 stations) have appeared, connecting the city center and the Moscow region. In rail transport alone, the number of passenger seats increased by 25 percent.
Thanks to the development of public transport, travel has become faster and more comfortable. Travel time for urban transport from the Moscow Ring Road to the center of Moscow was reduced by 13 minutes, and the average speed of traffic on highways increased by 20 percent.
