Oh yes. Because you live in Baku you can count all people. Again, this is not the place to spread population propaganda. I know that many people like to exaggerate things. But science counts.

hater, Baku city's population is 2,2 mln people (perhaps reaching 3 mln people when also counting Apsheron peninsula). So let's rely on the official census rather than abstract numbers.

Not really! Those 2,2 mln people live within about 800 sq km of the city of Baku. 2200 sq km is Baku + the whole Apsheron peninsula with a total population reaching app. 3 mln people.

Source please!

That 2.1 or 2.2 million refers to this region covering 2.130 km^2 including Apsheron peninsula.



Furthermore: The next bordering department of Abşeron has less than 0.2 million. So the overall population of Baku's agglomeration is more or less equal to the figures of the municipial proper.

Giving 3 or even 4 million for the city proper is somewhat missleading at all. Galandar, for example would you say that Baku is larger than Vienna? Not really since Vienna has easily 2.5 million within its agglomeration.

Unfortunately, they seem not to have the daily ridership information during Eurovision days.

Would have made zero difference, as Crystal Hall is in the middle of nowhere and not near a metro station

People!!!
The actuall daily ridership of the Baku Metro for 2012 is 530,000.
The annual ridership is OFFICIALLY projected to be around 193,768,000.

Taghi Ahmadov's estimate is completely INCORRECT!!!

Construction of 3 new stations and 7 km line between "Khatai" and "H.Aslanov" stations is planned to start in 2013.
Yesterday, Azerbaijani "Akkord" and French "Bouygues" signed a memorandum on cooperation in metro construction.
