Moscow Central Diameters (MCD) have celebrated their fourth anniversary.
Over those four years, they have become an integral part of the transport system in Moscow and the number of of trips on the MCD has exceeded the 725 million mark.
The first two lines of the surface metro were opened in November 2019, and, earlier this year, the city launched the MCD-3 and MCD-4 lines. With their launch, the residents of Moscow got 74 more stations, new direct routes with free interchanges to the metro, Moscow Central Circle and other diameters as well as revitalising the areas around the system.
The project is very popular among commuters. The record passenger traffic on the diameters per day was: 272 thousand on D1, 360 thousand on D2, 443 thousand on D3 and 264 thousand on D4. In 4 years passengers have made 255 million free transfers to the metro, MCC, and between the diameters.
The system is still expanding and improving with plans to build two new stations and to re-develop another four. By the end of 2025, the city is planning to replace all its MCD3 and 4 rolling stock.
