MOSCOW BUS

Although attempts to organize regular bus operation in the city took place prior to 1917, the first bus route in Moscow (Fire Watchtower Square, now Komsomol Square - Tver Outpost Square; length - 8.5 km) was opened only on August 8, 1924. At beginning, in Moscow operated 8 British buses which were constructed by "Leyland Motors" company. Its capacity was only 28 seats. In January 1925 another 16 "Leyland" buses were delivered in Moscow. It led to the opening of two new routes in February 1925: "Kursk Rail Terminal - Bryansk Rail Terminal (now Kyiv Rail Terminal)" and "Windawa Rail Terminal (now Riga Rail Terminal) - Pavelets Rail Terminal". In summer and autumn of 1925, few new bus routes opened in Moscow. In the end of 1925, in Moscow were 94 "Leyland" buses (Great Britain), 30 MAN buses (Germany), 12 "Renault" buses (France) and two "Ford" buses (United States).

In 1929 Moscow authorities decided to stop importing foreign buses. At that time was launched manufacturing of similar Soviet models at Yaroslavl Automotive Plant (now OJSC "Autodiesel" or Yaroslavl Motor Plant) and AMO (Moscow Automotive Society) Plant (now ZIL - Likhachev Plant). In 1920s and 1930s there was active development of the network of bus routes in Moscow. But, nevertheless, before 1950s buses played very minor role in the general passenger traffic (about 8%).

Bakhmetevsky Bus Garage

Bakhmetevsky Bus Garage was a public bus garage in Moscow, designed in 1926 by Konstantin Melnikov (floorplan concept and architectural design) and Vladimir Shukhov (structural engineering). The building, completed in 1927, was an example of applying avant-garde architectural methods to an industrial facility. Neglected for decades and nearly condemned to demolition, it was restored in 2007–2008 and reopened in September 2008 as a gallery of modern art.

In 1925, architect Konstantin Melnikov travelled to Paris, supervising construction of his Soviet Pavilion at the International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts. There, he received private commissions for garage buildings integrated with bridges over Seine River. These drafts never got beyond concept stage, however, Melnikov found an economical layout that enabled parking large number of cars without ever using reverse gear.

Back in Moscow, Melnikov saw a new fleet of "Leyland" buses tucked into a narrow yard at Greater Horde Street. He approached city transportation board and quickly sold his idea for a free-flow garage. It was built on a large lot in Bakhmetev Street, 11 (then a working class suburb north from Garden Ring; later, the street was renamed Obraztsov Street). Roof structure was designed by great Russian engineer Vladimir Shukhov; next year, Melnikov and Shukhov worked together on another building, a horseshoe-shaped Truck Garage at New Ryazan Street. Bakhmetevsky garage housed 104 buses on an area of 8500 square meters.

Bakhmetevsky Garage, sometimes associated with constructivist architecture, was in fact styled in an indefinite red-brick industrial livery; circular windows in the attic are the only avant-garde features (and even these were destroyed decades ago). What makes it stand out as an avant-garde landmark is its unorthodox, parallelogram-shaped floorplan and the subsequent influence on later industrial designs.

The whole project was more than just a garage. Melnikov also designed workshops and office buildings on the same lot, filling the irregular voids made by placing a parallelogram-shaped garage on a larger, rectangular lot. His original, unpublished 1927 master plan was found in 1999, in preparation to Melnikov memorial exhibition, and served as a base for 2003 redevelopment plan. However, in 1928 Melnikov changed this plan, and, after completing the office building himself, passed construction management to Andrey Kurochkin.
