Moscow Metro completed the update of trains on Line 5 (Circle Line). Now only new Moskva-2020 model will run here - in total, 35 trains.
According to The Department of Transport of Moscow, new Moskva-2020 trains will be served in Krasnaya Presnya depot. Also Moscow Metro continues to update rolling stock on Line 6 where it plans to completely replace all trains with Moskva-2020 trains in 2023.
"Line 5 is one of the most popular among Metro passengers, it is often used for transfers between lines. In the conditions of increasing incidence of Covid-19 in the capital, the renewal of rolling stock is especially important: the new trains have a built-in automatic air disinfection system and clean it during the trip. Now two-thirds of the metro's rolling stock belong to new-generation trains, and by the end of 2023, the renewal will reach 80%" - said Deputy Mayor of Moscow Maxim Liksutov.
