In the capital in 2020, new dedicated lanes for public transport with a total length of about 40 km will be equipped.
This was announced at a press conference by the head of the Moscow deptrans Maxim Liksutov. Earlier it was reported that by summer, Moscow’s dedicated lines will be stretched for the first time beyond the Moscow Ring Road: public transport will travel outside the city along the Yaroslavsky Highway. Also considered is the possibility of access to the Moscow region allocated lanes on the main departure routes of the capital.
Today in Moscow there are more than 60 dedicated lines, the total length of which exceeds 350 km. More than 3.3 million people travel through them daily.

Vozdvizhenka – Kutuzovsky Prospect – Mozhayskoye Highway, Nakhimovsky Prospect – Lomonosovsky Prospect – Minskaya Street, as well as Nizhny Novgorod Street – Ryazansky Prospect.
