Getting Around Moscow By Metro

The metro in Moscow is extremely safe compared to any major city. The trains are run very frequently and on time. The cost is approximated 17 rubles (about 70 cents). The metro is a very fast and efficient way getting around Moscow because the traffic jams can occur quickly particularly early in the morning and when people are coming home from work.

The open hours are from 5:20 am to 1:00 am usually the last train starts its way at 00:50 am from the last station at any line; the passes between stations are closed at 1:00 am. There are 9 train stations in Moscow. Each has the name of the main direction of the trains that depart from this railway station. All the railway stations are located close to the centrum of the city.

Pocket maps of the system are available at newspaper kiosks and sometimes from individual vendors at metro stations. Be sure that you obtain a map with English transliterations in addition to Cyrillic. The metro is easy to use and amazingly inexpensive. Stations are marked with a large illuminated "M" sign. The fare is the same regardless of distance traveled, and there are several stations where lines connect and you may transfer for free.
