I’m totally amazed to see that how the urban rail transport of Baku is declining since the last 10 years. It just continues the decline of former USSR.

At first, they closed the tram network completely in 2004, helping fuel adding to increase automobile, thus increasing air pollution.

But generally some cities stopped tram & opened metro, to more increased capacity rail transport. Surprisingly, Baku is also much backward in this way. Construction of line 2 is far slow, and only one station is currently opened, this also operated by a short shuttle train.

When other cities increasing their metro lines fast, Baku is moving very slowly, only 5 Km in 3 years!!! Is their any political problem? There is only 35 Km. metro system in 60 years!!!!!!

My city Kolkata also earlier had the same problem, they were declining tram network (thankfully, has not died completely and still active much), but improvement of metro was very slow. Metro has constructed here upto 17 km in 17 years!!!, and then again stagnancy. Finally if our former railway minister Miss Mamata Bandopadhyay was not super-active, it should stagnant forever. At last the current length is 25 Km. in 32 years, i.e. from 1978 to 2010!!! Could you imagine?

So rather than super-decorating stations (but trains are old stylish) like former USSR style, Azeri government should concentrate to expand metro network as much as possible, quickly. They closed tram for the sake of traffic jam, but why they are not serials to ease & decrease the air pollution by increasing metro??

I’ve some questions (arose after viewing some websites). Please answer one by one –
1) Will there be a shorter link between Nizami & 28 May for through service?
2) Will line 2 be extended from Sah Ismail to Yeni Gunesli via hazi Aslanov directly?
3) Will there be a new line 3 from Javadxan to AvtovagzalCedra?

Stop being an insensitive prick. They had a fire in 1995 that killed hundreds of people. That certainly didn't help move things forward.

Also, not sure what bad hooch you drank in Bengal, but the Baku Metro is only 45 years old. If you're jonesing for trolling, make your way to the Tbilisi forum and harangue them for building 25 km over 46 years.

All is forgiven.

Regarding question #2, the only side platforms are at Cəfər Cabbarlı station (but really two different halves of a separated island platform). Question #6: Interchange to suburban trains at 28 May/Cəfər Cabbarlı and Koroglu stations.
Question #3: Bakmil station appears to be the only surface station.
Question #7: There is a depot at Bakmil station (Narimanov yard). Another one appars to be u/c near Dərnəgül (Dərnəgül yard).
Question #1: LINE 3 opens 2013.

This map also states that at Şah Ismail Hətai and İçәri Şәhәr stations, all trains use track I only.


Şah Ismail Hətai - track II is not accessible from platform

Baku metro was opened in 1967. During Soviet period, 18 stations were built in 22 years. After collapse of USSR, country faced war and economic difficulties. The ongoing construction works from Soviet period were stopped. In 1993 "Jafar Jabbarli" station was opened (half part), and in 2002 "Hazi Aslanov" station was completed (construction started in 1989 but stopped then). Azerbaijan's economic development started since 2006 after the BTC pipeline was opened. So, in 2006 the construction of new stations began. In 2008, 2009 and 2011 new stations and second half of "Jafar Jabbarli" were completed. And currently, 5 stations and the new third line are under construction (planned opening is 2015).

1) There is a link between "Nizami" and "28 May" now. But the lines will be separated in near future, so the link will be closed.
2) Yes, it will. Construction is going to start in a few years.
3) Yes, currently this line is under construction. Works in "Avtovagzal" station are going and construction of "Javadxan" station will be started soon. After completion of these stations, the line will go to the city center.

1) It was 2013, but now it is 2015.
4) The deepest one as I know is "Sah Ismail Khatai" station (opened in 1968).
5) I think it is "28 May" station. Also, "Sahil" and "Elmlar Akademiyasi" are among the busiest ones.

The above layout is very good.

Baku is one of the ill-fated city which has closed their tram networks in recent years. Whereas many cities are now opening/re-opening trams nowadays, Baku closed it in 2004.



A sad photo, showing that Baku's tram cars are on the last days. the damaged & under maintained tracks shows that the highly negligency to destroy such an eco-friendly transport.



Almost same like Kolkata, same negligency.



A rare photo, shows that tram is passing just beside the metro station.



A remaining of former tram depot.

But thankfully Baku is thinking to reintroduce tram around 2020, waiting for that day.

COULD ANY BODY SAY THE LOCATIONS OF THOSE PHOTOS, ESPECIALLY THE METRO STATION WITH TRAM & THE CLOSED TRAM DEPOT?

The old tram yard is located just west of Gənclik station on Hasan Aliyev Avenue. Follow the links below the photos below to get the location on the map. Once home to trams, the depot is now home to various cocks.

Dilapidated tram in 1999:


There is a huge map of the tram network here:

Tram #6 passed 3 metro stations along its route.

Thanks for this great map, hence (I think) it is in Russian, so I couldn't understand fully.

But I presume these points-
a) The light dotted lines are about metro.
b) The light & dark green lines are about trolleybus.
3) The red lines are about tram.

Am I right? If no, then please clarify which coloured lines represents now closed tram lines.
