MOSCOW, April 19. /TASS/. Subway trains in the Russian capital run at a record interval of 90 seconds in rush hours, the highest rate in the world, Moscow Deputy Mayor Maxim Liksutov said at a meeting of the city government’s presidium on Tuesday.
Eight-car subway trains run in the busiest metro lines within a record short interval of 90 seconds, the Moscow transport official said.
"This figure is an absolute record for all the world’s metro systems," Liksutov said.
"The standards of services and the level of security in the Moscow metro are among the best in the world and the Moscow government pays constant attention to these issues," he added.
Moscow subway trains cover a distance of 785 million kilometers together with passengers in a year, which is also the highest intensity indicator among the world’s leading transport systems, Liksutov said.
The Moscow subway has switched to the regular practice of holding so-called technological maintenance windows since last year, he said.
"One day-time technological window allows fulfilling the amount of works, which would have to be carried out during normal nighttime technological windows during a month," he said.
