For many years now, Moscow has been one of the most developed megalopolises in the fi eld of
transport, not only in Russia, but also in the world. Thanks to the implementation of the largest metro
construction program in Europe over the past 10 years, 83 km of lines, 42 stations and 10 depots have
been built in Moscow. The key project of the capital’s metro construction today is the Big Ring Line
(BCL) of the subway. The BCL will be 70 km long and will house 31 stations. Nevertheless, in some areas,
the problem of transport accessibility remains.
Travelling by several means of public transport and making many transfers, passengers fl ock en
masse to the only nearest metro station, which is already overcrowded with people. Therefore, the
residents put before the local authorities the task of organizing a new convenient way of transportation, suitable for the place.
Such areas include, fi rst of all, Biryulyovo Vostochnoye, where 146 thousand residents currently
live and travel by minivans taxis and buses to the nearest metro station “Tsaritsyno” daily. At the same
time, the district has a fairly developed railway infrastructure, which is not fully used for urban passenger transportation.
The launch of an urban railway route with a diesel train will be the main solution to the problem
of increasing the carrying capacity of public passenger transport in this corridor and signifi cantly improve the transport accessibility of Biryulyovo Vostochnoe.
