Next two weeks, MCD travels to be free of charge

November 26, 2019

For the next two weeks, passengers will ride MCD trains free of charge, as Sergei Sobyanin reported on his official VKontakte account.


Traffic on the first two MCD routes launched on 21 November. MCD-1 Belorussko-Savelovsky (Odintsovo — Lobnya) is 52 km long. MCD-2 Kursko-Rizhsky (Nakhabino — Podolsk) is 80 km long. The two MCDs together have 57 stations, with 19 of them offering transfer to the metro, Moscow Central Circle and the radial railway lines. 66 stations are expected to open, with the number of transfer stations to reach 27.

The first stage involves 39 innovative Ivolga trains and 99 regular commuter trains. By the end of 2020, Ivolga trains will upgrade to version 2.0. The trains have no vestibules, with entrance doors being 15% wider than in regular commuter trains (1.4 m), so that passengers could board faster.

Modern climate control systems maintain the carriage temperature between +18 and +24°C. There are also air disinfection systems, Wi-Fi hotspots, USB sockets, bicycle racks, modern alert and security systems, and online monitoring of the train's technical condition. Noise is reduced by almost 30%.

Ivolga trains can have 5 to 12 carriages, so it is easy to adjust the train to changing passenger traffic. 12-carriage trains accommodates 3,000 people at a time.
