MOSCOW, January 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Passenger traffic intensity boards will appear on the Moscow subway this year.
The boards will be installed at the entrances to subway stations to inform the passengers about the number of people at the stations and on the trains so that they could choose alternative means of transportation beforehand.
Now such information is available on the city subway’s official website. The busiest hours are from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. The biggest passenger traffic is reported in December, March and in the autumn; and smallest in August. The subway transports more than 220 million people in March and 165 million in August.
In 2011, the Moscow subway transported nearly 2.4 billion people. The peak was registered on December 22 when 9.2 million people used the subway because of a heavy snowfall, compared to 8.9 million at any other “regular” day in December.
According to the subway press service, the number of passengers in 2011 increased by 1.8 percent from 2010.
