Warsaw Metro just decided to buy new 5 trains from the St.Petersburg Vagonmash. It will be last trains for the fist metro line which will be completed in 2008. So finally we will have 20 Russian and 18 Alstom trains to serve this line.

Some pics of the 18-21 metro stations construction sites:

Why are they buying more Russian trains? Is it just because they're cheaper?

it's not that extensive - there is only a single metro line, and there is not much going on with comuter trains either. only the tram and bus network is extensive.
I could show you cities in europe which only have a third of the population of warsaw but have 10 times more metro lines and comuter railways (in addition to the tram and bus newtork)

and btw. warsaw only has 1.7 million ppl ...

Then show me a city with 550 k people, 182 km of metro lines and more than 1000 km of commuter railways (comparable with WKD, SKM and KM).

ok.

Ive just been to frankfurt for a couple of days. this city has 7 metro lines (1 more under construction), has 9 suburban train lines, and countless regional trainlines.
it also has 9 tram lines and tens of buslines (if you wanna know exactly, do the counting yourself).

and frankfurt only has six-hundred-something thousand ppl...


for some plans have a look here (I couldnt find a plan for tramlines though, and also no plan for buslines)

warsaw doesn't have 182km of metro lines!!! warsaws single metro line is about 20km long.


edit: I found more info: the commuter railways are 1450km long, the network has 389 stations

When you compare transport systems - population in city limits is not as important as population of whole metropolitan areas...
Frankfurt Metropolitan Area is much lager: 5,5 mln to 2,6 mln in Warsaw, dont forget also Frankfurt is not only european but also GLOBAL transport hub so in fact daily potential/real number of passangers in Frankfurt is MUCH larger than in Warsaw...

Houston (the biggest city in Texas,USA):
-one new light train line
-some bus lines
Praha (Czech Republic):
-three lines of underground
-tram and bus network

I don't know what is the reason.But it's not population, city's size,and money.

This thread is about Warsaw,not about reasons of building big networks of city transport.

I like city transport in that city,because I can go whereever I want in short time.

Sb already mentioned that Frankfurt metro area is larger than Warsaw's. I'm pretty sure, Frankfurt subway lines are crossing city borders.

Warsaw has 18,2 km subway network so this hypothetical three times smaller city should have 182 km subway network. Frankfurt has 57,27 km network which is about 3 times bigger than Warsaw's.

On the other hand Warsaw has 121 km tramway network, while Frankfurt has 63,37 km tramway network.

Also suburban and regional train networks of both cites are comparable, even though Frankfurt network is much more modern, better served by trains, and better integrated with urban transportation network.

Warszawa





From a station in Warszawa.


Near Russian marked. Supposed to be known









From a big station, near the stadium. The Russian marked closes in September, as a new Football stadium will be built there etc. Do they use the middle tracks for express routes of some kind? Someone knows?







These pics are taken from inside the tram. I try to show how fast the tram goes. Yes! Especially in rush hours, tram is indeed one of the best ways to get arround, as its lots of traffic on the streets. Busses are stuck etc The tram system in Warszawa must be one of the best ones. The tracks never shares tracks with cars or busses. Which make them kings






The trams might be old, but they run! They go fast. Atleast 70-80km/h. Yes, they drive insane fast, especially if theyre delayed by something

I really enjoyed Warszawa. Great city, with nice people, low prices and such and beutifull city. New skyscrapers is in harmony with the older buildings etc. I really loved it! I warmly recommend Warszawa, so if anyone of you go there, you will have fun for sure. For me, it was very cool

Regards,
Michal
