Aeroexpress is nice, but I don't understand why they won't route it through Kazan North terminal, where a metro station is being built, and why Tatar Cyrillic instead of Tatar Latin was used as on the metro.

Both options had own pros and cons. Central Rail Terminal is located in the city center and has better access for ground transport. Northern Terminal is not close from city centre, and majority of residents would be forced to ride by hook-shaped route to reach Airport (which located 26-28 kilometers south-southeast of city).

Because Kazan is a city of Russian Federation, not United States! In Russia, we historically use Cyrillic alphabet.

Cyrillic alphabet is using in Tatarstan since 1939. On September 15, 1999 Parliament of Tatarstan adopted the law "On the Restoration of the Tatar alphabet based on Latin", which came into force on September 1, 2001.

On January 15, 2002 the State Duma of the Russian Federation introduced an amendment to the Federal Law "On the languages ​​of the peoples of Russia", which established that Cyrillic should be sole graphic basis for official language ​​of Russian Federation and all official languages of the Republics of Russian Federation.

On November 16, 2004 Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation recognized the right of the federal body of the legislature power to establish graphic basis for official languages of the peoples of Russia ​​on the base of Cyrillic alphabet. Thus, the attempts of Tatar authorities to translate Tatar alphabet from Cyrillic to Latin were rejected. Since December 28, 2004 the law "On the Restoration of the Tatar alphabet based on Latin" no longer valid according to decision of Supreme Court of Republic of Tatarstan.

He asked about Tatar inscriptions (like Казанга Аэроэкспресс) - why it's written on Tatar Cyrillic, not Tatar Latin? I answered that according to Federal Law, Cyrillic should be only graphic basis for alphabets of all official languages of Republics of Russia.

Of course, all inscriptions in international airports should be duplicated on English.

Since the airport is on the south side of town, perhaps they could have had an Aeroexpress station at Ametyevo? I don't know how the rails around Kazan are laid out, but you have to agree it's ridiculous that the Aeroexpress does not connect to the metro, which is quickly becoming the city's main transport artery.

But Kazan is not Moscow, and Metro is still not cover all large-populated districts. Kazan Metro does not have largest passenger traffic compared with ground transport. Many people still uses ground transport to reach Metro station. That's why don't need to be fully-oriented on Metro in current situation.

Well, unfortunately, I never been in Kazan and I don't know all nuances exactly. That's why it's some difficult for me to write about this situation.

I can only add that we had mini-voting at Russian section of SSC, and majority of forumers voted for Central Terminal (53 votes) than for Ametyevo (25 votes) or Northern Terminal (21 votes). Not all people who took part in this voting were Kazan residents, although....

MOSCOW TRAM

"Uralvagonzavod" and "Bombardier" to provide the city of Moscow with 120 express trams

14.12.2012 — News

SVERDLOVSK REGION

The "Uralvagonzavod" research and production corporation, OJSC, along with the Canadian engineering firm "Bombardier", will produce 120 express trams for the city of Moscow by April 1, 2015. The contract, which is worth 8.46 billion rubles, was won after a request for tenders.

The first shipments of tram cars will be manufactured at Bombardier's facilities, but in the future their production will be launched in Russia.

UVZ's press office told "RusBusinessNews" that it is expected that trams will be assembled in 2013 from a number of Bombardier's recent models at the facilities of the Ural Transport Machinery Plant, OJSC (a subsidiary of "Uralvagonzavod"), which specializes in the production of such products. The parties expect to eventually localize 50% of the production in Russia.
