Yekaterinburg Metro


In 2011, Yekaterinburg Metro celebrated its 20 years in operation. Today, the metro line runs from the north of the city to the south.

After the inauguration of the line section between Geologicheskaya and Botanicheskaya stations on November 28, 2011, the total line length reached 12,7 km. Although one metro line is not enough, there are no plans of further extension of the metro system. The daily ridership on week days varies between 150 and 170 thousand passengers. If the surface public transport system changes the metro ridership may increase up to 200,ooo passengers.
