No subway-specific works on Kyiv line 4, only bridge building at the moment.
Kharkiv - line 3 north, 1 station u\c (Prospekt Permohy).

I'm pleasantly surprised at how orderly the Blue Line (Kiev) depot is, and the train color matches the line name too! Comparing the 1980s picture versus today, not only the train cars have colors painted in them (typically, subway colors either are white or steel gray), but also the train cars look much more modern (with windshield wipers and angled lighting) today than 30 years ago. Sure, the train sets may be shorter than other subway systems, but I can sense the colors of Ukraine are proudly painted on each train car, and I can feel the pride riding that metro.

Question, though: are there any plans to extend the train sets from five to six cars, if not more? Plus, how long is a typical subway platform, and how many cars can those serve?

Platforms at all stations only 100 m in length or 5 cars. The fourth line plan for 6 cars (120m)

Lines 1,2,3 have 100 m long platforms - 5 car train. Currently there is no plan to rebuild stations for 6+ car - that would be expensive as hell.
Line 4 (u/c) will be 6 car (120 m long platforms).

BTW, classic paint scheme of Kyiv metro was blue with white stripe (lines 2,3) and half blue/half green with black stripe* (line 1). There was brief period of grey liveries in 90th (I suppose it has to do something with lack of money during dark age of 1991-2002), which was dropped in favour of modern blue with yellow stripe livery.


*the actual photo is from Kharkiv, but the paint scheme is the same

The front of the tram is sexy, but the rear is a bit plain... They really should use the same ''mask' for rear too.
Anyway, I really happy that my country at last produces modern trams.

I've looked through the thread and I've noticed that a (IMO) unique system is missing - Crimae Trolleybus. For those who don't know it - it's a long-distance trolleybus system connecting Simferopol, Alushta and Yalta (Here is a map of the system). I hope it still counts as "urban" system even if it goes far outside urban areas.

Is there something new about this system? Any expansions plans (or worse - closure plans)? New trolleybuses?

I believe they've got new Bogdan T70110 and T70115 trolleybuses? Did they replace some older Škoda 9Tr/9TrH? Are the 9Tr's modernised?

That looks like a wonderful way to see the center of the ancient and holy city of Dnepropetrovsk.
