I saw traffic jams on tracks. These trams have to ride about 60km/h to achieve 30 of average speed. In this case one car can totally disrupt service.

No accident - just normal "priority" of tram on signals and cars cutting off trams.

Hmm... reprint from Rynek Kolejowy - is there any official document in Russia? For example Mosgortrans page?

It's very interesting to know - what did you want to see in Noginsk?

MOSCOW | Bus 905

July 1 saw the first run of express bus 905 from Belorussky railway terminal to the MKAD beltway.





The bus makes a few stops along the way, including at Voykovskaya, Sokol and Dinamo stations on Metro Line 2. The MKAD terminus has a park-and-ride for use of suburban commuters.

You might have confused Voykovskaya with Volokolamskaya.

I guess Moscow will be starting overnight bus, trolleybus and tram service on select routes beginning next month. That's definitely a good development.

I have seen a lot of rusty buses in Moscow - especially Ikaruses and old Liazes.

Some pictures of railways within Moscow built-up area.

Yaroslavskoe line. The train frequency here is comparable to what is seen in metros. Trains run every 3 minutes. Once I saw 3 trains running along one another. Seems like in Tokyo!

Mosgortrans operate about 7000 buses and just 33 of them are old (2000-2001 models) Ikarus 280. Till the end of the year these buses will be written off.
