Bucharest Approves Subway to Airport

Romanian capital to spend more than US$1 billion for new subway line to airports
9 June 2006

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) - The city of Bucharest on Friday approved a €900 million (US$1.13 billion) project to build a new subway line linking the main train station to two airports.

The line will run underground to Otopeni International Airport with a stopover at the smaller Baneasa Airport, and will also serve new communities that have developed on the northern side of the city.

"The city is developing and a fast link between the largest train station and the international airport is vital," Mayor Adriean Videanu told the city council. He said the project would be funded by a 40-year loan from the Japanese government, with 0.75 percent interest.

Negotiations with the Japanese government -- which has already funded large infrastructure projects in the city -- will begin next month, Videanu added.

Bucharest traffic has become heavily congested in recent years as the number of cars has exceeded 1 million. The city has more than 2.1 million residents.

First Bucharest subway opens since communism ends
20 November 2008

BUCHAREST, Romania (AP) - Passengers have begun traveling on the first new subway line in the Romanian capital since the fall of communism in 1989.

Work on the 3-mile (5-kilometer) line has been repeatedly delayed over 19 years because of financial problems. The Cotidianul daily newspaper reports that the line cost euro145 million ($183 million).

The fifth line in the Bucharest system opened Thursday and links industrial and residential areas in the east of the city.

Bucharest's system first opened in 1979 and has grown in popularity as traffic worsens on the streets above. Work on the new line started in 1989, the year that communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu was ousted and executed.

Looks very nice and modern unlike new Moscow metro cars. Do you have a picture of the outside of the metro cars? Stations you are showing are also very nice.

BUCHAREST | Public Transport

Because I didn't saw a topic for Bucharest Subway, I decided to start one.
The Lines cover all big town parts except of one, The Drumul Taberei (Camp's Rd.)

The Bucharest Metro (Metroul Bucureşti in Romanian) is an underground urban railway network that serves the capital of Romania, Bucharest. The network is run by Metrorex. It is one of the most accessed systems of the Bucharest public transport network with an average ridership of 750,000 passengers per day.In total, the network is 67.3 km long and has 48 stations.
The first line, M1, opened on November 16, 1979, running from Timpuri Noi to Semănătoarea (now Petrache Poenaru). It was 6.2 km long with 6 stations. Following this, more lines were opened:
December 1981: M1/M3 Timpuri Noi - Republica; 10.1 km, 6 stations
August 1983: M3 Branch line Eroilor - Industriilor (now Preciziei) ; 8.63 km, 5 stations, Gorjului station added in 1991
December 1984: M1 Semănătoarea (Petrache Poenaru) - Crângaşi; 0.97 km, 1 station
January 1986: M2 Piaţa Unirii - Depoul IMGB (now Berceni) ; 9.96 km, 8 stations
October 1987: M2 Piaţa Unirii - Pipera; 8.72 km, 6 stations
December 1987: M1 Crângaşi - Gara de Nord 1; 2.83 km, 2 stations (Basarab added 1990)
August 1989: M1 Gara de Nord 1 - Dristor 2; 7.8 km, 6 stations
January 1990: M1/M3 Republica - Pantelimon; 1.43 km, 1 station (single track, operational on a special schedule)
March 2000: M4 Gara de Nord 2 - 1 Mai; 3.6 km, 4 stations
November 2008: M3 branch Nicolae Grigorescu 2 - Linia de centura (now Anghel Saligny), 4 stations

Large stations which connect with other lines (such as Victoriei) have two terminals, and each terminal goes by a different name (Victoriei 1 and Victoriei 2). On the official network map, they are shown as two stations with a connection in between, even though, in practice (and in trip planners), they are really only one station with platforms at different levels. There is one exception: Gara de Nord 1 and Gara de Nord 2 are separate stations (although linked through a subterranean passage, the traveller is required to exit the station proper and pay for a new fare at the other station, thus leaving the system), passengers being required to change trains at Basarab.
Generally, the underground stations feature large interiors. The largest one, Piata Unirii, is cathedral-like, with vast interior spaces, hosting retail outlets and fast-food restaurants and has an intricate network of underground corridors and passage ways.
History:
The earliest plans for a Bucharest Metro were drafted in the late 1930s, alongside the general plans for urban modernization of the city.[citation needed] In 1938, the local authorities assigned the task of planning and constructing the subway system to S.A. Metropolitanul, with work scheduled to start in March 1941.[citation needed] The outbreak of World War II, followed by periods of political tensions culminating with the installation of communism, put an end to the plans.
By 1970, the public transport system (ITB) was no longer adequate due to the fast pace of urban development, although the system was the fourth-largest in Europe. A commission was set up, and its conclusion pointed to the necessity of an underground transit system that would become the Bucharest Metro.
The network was not built in the same style as other Eastern European systems. Firstly, the design of the stations on the initial lines was simple, clean cut modern designs, without excessive additions such as mosaics, awkward lighting sources or excessive decoration. The main function of the stations was speed of transit and modernity. Secondly, the trainsets themselves were all constructed in Romania and did not follow the Eastern European style of construction. Each station usually followed a colour theme (generally white - in Unirii 2, Universitate, Victoriei 1, Politehnica, Lujerului; but also light blue - in Obor and Gara de Nord; orange - in Tineretului), and an open plan. No station was made to look exactly like any other. Despite this, many stations are rather dark, due to the policies of energy economy in the late 1980s; later modernisations doing little to fix this problem. Bucharest being one of the largest cities in the region, it has quite a large network (larger than Prague, Amsterdam or Budapest). When the planned new line-extensions is finished, it will increase to more than 100 km (with about 80 stations).


As of 2008, the entire network runs underground, except for a short stretch between Dimitrie Leonida and Berceni on the southern end of M2 line. The network is served by four depots, 2 being located above ground (IMGB and Industriilor) and two underground (Ciurel and Pantelimon) and by additional smaller works at Gara de Nord and Eroilor stations.
There are two connections between the Metro network and the Romanian Railways network, one at IMGB (connecting to the Bucharest Belt Ring), the other at Ciurel (connecting via an underground passage to the Cotroceni-Militari industrial railway). The latter connection however is unused and mothballed. The metro network and the national rail network share the same gauge (1435 mm) and loading gauge but not the same electrification system (the metro uses 750 V DC whereas the Romanian Railways use 25000 V 50 Hz AC) making it possible for new metro cars to be transported cross country as unpowered railway cars.
The network is powered by a bottom-contact third rail system except in works, depots and some tunnels where a catenary system is employed.
There are 4 metro lines in operations, 1 more being auctioned off and 2 being planned:
In operation:
M1 Line: between Dristor and Pantelimon - the first line to open (in 1979), is circular with a North Eastern spur; Part of its tracks are shared with M3 (7 stations).
M2 Line: between Pipera and Berceni opened in 1986, completed 1988; Runs in a North-South direction, crossing the center.
M3 Line: between Preciziei and Anghel Saligny opened in 1989, completed 2008; Runs in an East-West direction, south of the center. Shares part of its tracks with M1 (7 stations). Traffic on the shared lines was suspended for M3 trains until summer 2009 for completion of structural work at the newly opened 1 Decembrie station. M3 line is to be extended to Carrefour Militari, most probably before 2013.
M4 Line: between 1 Mai and Gara de Nord opened in 2000; Extension to Laminorului under construction, to be opened in 2010. Then between Gara de Nord and Gara Progresul. The M4 line will connect the two most important railway stations in Bucharest along with Giurgiului and Bucurestii Noi neighborhoods;
Planned:
M5 Line: between Ghencea and Pantelimon to be opened in 2014;
M6 Line: between Rahova and Colentina
M7 Line: between M4 Line and Otopeni
Two more stations are planned and may be constructed on existing lines, both on M1. However, given the complexity of work required, and the limited benefits these stations have it is unlikely that construction will begin in the near future:
Dorobanţi between Stefan cel Mare and Piaţa Victoriei;
Giuleşti between Crângaşi and Basarab.

The Bucharest Metro uses two types of trainsets:
Astra IVA modular cars, built in Arad between 1976 and 1992
Bombardier Movia 346 trainsets, built in 2002-2008
The Astra trains used on the system are made up of various trainsets (rame) connected together. Each trainset is made up of two permanently-connected train-cars (B'B'-B'B' formation) that can only be run together. On lines M1 and M3, three trainsets (totalling six cars) are connected together, with a length of up to 120 metres, while in line M4, two trainsets run together (totalling four cars). M2 only uses Bombardier Trains. The ASTRA Arad rolling stock was built between 1976 and 1992, and is approaching the end of its service life, so it is currently being either refurbished or phased out.
The Bombardier trains are made up of six permanently connected cars, forming an open corridor for the entire length of the train (2'2'+Bo'Bo'+Bo'Bo'+Bo'Bo'+Bo'Bo'+2'2' formation).
The subway livery for Bucharest is either white with two yellow or red horizontal stripes below the window for ASTRA trains, or stainless steel with black and white for the Bombardier trains. All trains run on 750 V DC a third rail, or an overhead wire in maintenance areas where a third rail would not be safe. Maximum speed on the system is 80 km/h (50 mph), although plans are to increase it to 100 km/h (60 mph) on M5, a new line currently in planning stage.
The signaling system used is similar to the PZB version used by the Căile Ferate Române (Romanian Railways), with the inductor placed on the inside of the rails rather than the outside. The color light signals have the following meaning[3]:
red: stop
blinking red: automated signaling disabled, proceed with reduced speed (5–10 km/h) ready to stop at obstacles
yellow: proceed, next signal is red
blinking yellow: proceed with reduced speed (30 km/h, unless noted otherwise) on diverging track
green: proceed, next signal is not red
blinking green: proceed with allowed speed on diverging track
The minimum distance between two trains is 90 seconds. On the M2, the signaling system is now replaced by the ATP-System. The signals between the stations remain completely dark, while the exit signals of the station are showing a red light and the letters ATP. In the next years, this system shall replace the classic signaling system also on the other lines.
Although the Bucharest Metro is, on the whole, an efficient transportation system, there are several common criticisms of the network. One of these is the relatively poor signage and the lack of network maps on the system. Most stations do not have maps that cover the entire network, instead having only panels showing the names of stations on the current line or, in some cases, only showing a selected number of stations from the respective line. Additionally, many stations have poor signage showing correspondence passages and exits. For this reason, it is possible to get lost on the system or take the train in the opposite direction. This problem is currently being addressed, with a new system of information booths and network maps being introduced in various stations, starting with Dristor, Piaţa Unirii, Eroilor and Piaţa Victoriei.
Another possible source of confusion for infrequent travellers is the audio announcements in stations and trains. In trains, the name of the station is never announced when entering the station. Rather, as the doors close, the next station is announced, as well as the location of the platform on the next station. The standard form for the in-train announcements is "Attention! Doors are closing! Next station is ... with the platform on the right/left side" (Atenţie, se închid uşile! Urmează staţia ... cu peronul pe partea dreaptă/stângă). However, with the introduction of newer Bombardier trainsets, this issue has been somewhat addressed: most of these trains are fitted with red or orange dot-matrix displays, constantly announcing the next station and the name of the station upon entering.
Other issues are low coverage (sizeable areas of the city don't have any subway access at all and the distance between stations is very large) and at times large intervals between trains.
The following extensions are in the process of being built:
An extension of Line M4 (opened in 2000 and currently running from Gara de Nord-1 Mai) to be opened from 1 Mai to Laminorului via Pajura (2.67 km, 2 stations), in the city's north. The extension is to be completed by 2011.[4] Also, the feasibility study for another extension of the line to Gara Progresul is in progress;
By 2012 Metrorex plans to open 5 new metro stations on M2 and M3 (new locations include Spitalul Colentina on M3, Mărăşeşti on M2, Giuleşti on M1).
These extensions will raise the network size to 55 stations with 70 km length, making it rather extensive.
Metrorex is also planning the following new lines and routes:
A new line, M5, which will run from Ghencea/Drumul Taberei district via Eroilor and Universitate to Pantelimon, the current terminus of M1. The line will have 19 stations, and will be around 18–19 km in length. It will intersect with all existing lines except M4. Line M5 is currently in its planning stage, with construction expected to begin by 2008 and conclude before 2020. The line is expected to cost €740 million;[5]
A new M4 branch serving the two main airports of Bucharest: Henri Coandă International Airport and Aurel Vlaicu International Airport. Henri Coandă, the country's largest airport, is currently served only by busses and CFR trains[6], while Aurel Vlaicu is served by RATB busses and trams. The metro extension will be very convenient because both airports are located north of the city and hence a single metro extension could serve both of them, making transfer between the two airports very easy. This line would also serve the Piaţa Presei Libere, Pajura, Băneasa areas, as well as some northern Bucharest suburbs. Works were scheduled to start in 2007 and be complete in seven years. The cost of the line, which will have a length of 13.9 km and 14 stations, would be around €1 billion.[7]
Public transport in Bucharest is heavily subsidized, and the subsidies will increase, as the City Council wants to reduce traffic jams, pollution and parking problems and promote public transport. Like the RATB, the metro can get crowded during morning and afternoon rush hours. The network uses a dual system, employing both magnetic stripe cards, that are not valid for use on trams, buses or trolleys and a newer system with RFID contactless cards that are also valid on the RATB ground network.
[edit]RFID cards
From July 2006, the public transport in Bucharest was to be coordinated by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority - however, this was postponed indefinitely. The ticketing systems for ground and subway transportation are currently being unified, with a new RFID card system being deployed across the network, with the old cards slated to be discontinued.
The newer RFID card system is managed by RATB and RFID cards can only be obtained from RATB kiosks. The system is called Card ACTIV. RFID cards are given away free of charge, but only if one agrees to have one's personal data (name and personal numeric code) imprinted on the card. Along with the personal data, as one uses the transport system, cost and usage data is collected in a centralised database. RATB claims this data is used only for improving the transport system. Only the person with the name imprinted on the card may use that card if used in combination with a monthly pass. If the card is lost, the lost card can be canceled and the traveller, for a small fee, can obtain a new card with the remaining credit on it. Anonymous RFID cards can also be obtained for a small fee and they can be used by multiple travelers.
One must purchase a pass or credit to actually use the Card ACTIV on the underground or ground network. Also, these newer cards currently support for the metro network only monthly passes and a form of payment by trip, where travelers can buy credit (but only at RATB kiosks). The full cost of a trip - 1.25 RON (€ 0.29) is then deducted from the card whenever entering the metro network, regardless of the number of times a traveller enters the metro network in a given time interval. Because of this limitation, the 10 trip older-style metro card (see below) remains the most cost-effective solution for the casual traveler.
Older style metro cards cand be purchased at any metro station. Prices (as of April 2009)[8]:
2 trip card - 2.5 RON (€ 0.58)
10 trip card - 8 RON (€ 1.89)
Monthly pass (full price) - 25 RON (€ 5.8)
Student monthly pass (only for Romanians) - 12.5 RON (€ 2.9)
1 day card - 5 RON (€ 1.16)
Free for senior citizens over 70 years of age
Older-style metro cards are not linked with personal data or usage data in a central database and thus they guarantee anonymity of the travel. Because of that, however, if a metro card is lost or damaged, the traveller cannot be reimbursed for the unused trips.
Trains generally run from 5 AM to 11 PM except on Fridays and Saturdays, when the last trains leave at 12 AM from the terminus stations. The last trains on M1, M2 and M3 wait for the transfer of the passengers between lines to complete, before leaving Piata Unirii station [9]. At rush hour, trains run at 3-5 minute intervals on lines 1, 3 and 4, and at 3-4 minute intervals on line 2. During the rest of the day, they run at max.6 minute intervals on lines 1 and 3, 5 minute intervals on line 2 and 8 minute intervals on line 4[10].

M1 (33.67 Km)[1] was the first line of the Bucharest Metro, opened on 16 November 1979. The M1 Line runs from Dristor 2 to Pantelimon.
M2 (18.7 Km)[1] is one of the four lines of metro of the Bucharest Metro. M2 Line runs from Pipera to Berceni.
M3 (8.83 Km)[1] is one of the 4 lines of metro of the Bucharest Metro. M3 Line runs from Linia de Centura to Industriilor. It was originally constructed in 1983, with the 15 stations currently in use[2]. It shares 6 stations with the M1, between Eroilor and Dristor 1. Today it links the East and the West neighbourhoods of the Romanian capital. It also connects the A1 and A2 motorways.
M4 is one of the 4 lines of metro of the Bucharest Metro. M4 Line runs from 1 Mai to Gara de Nord. This line is the shortest (3.68 Km)[1] of those of the Bucharest Metro and the most recent (the first station on this line opened on March 1st 2000).
4 more stations are under construction (Pajura, Parc Bazilescu, Zarea and Laminorului), completion of those however being significantly delayed due to very complicated soil requiring technology never before used on the Bucharest Underground. Current schedule for opening these stations is Spring 2010, provided no further delays.

And the lines colors:

M1-yellow
M2-blue
M3-red
M4-green

So, that's all about the Romanian Capital's subway system.

You can enter www.tramclub.org (a romanian transport site with an english version) for more info.

It will be easier for us to renovate the old stations ,than you to dig/build a network as long as ours.You can not compare your few kilometers of track ,with ours complete network wich is really useful to our city.I don t now why, but it seems to me that your most recent built stations still have a comunist look.What about your ground level track which is cut in two a whole neighborhood?
