Moscow metropolitan, or Metro, which was opened on May 15, 1935, is the main public transport of the capital connecting the central part of the city with industrial and residential areas.

Radial-circle structure of metro corresponds to the historically established layout of Moscow. It branches out from the centre to the outskirts providing the most reliable and rapid transportation.

The trip begins upon passing through the turnstiles at the entrance to the Metro station and ends after you exit the subway. Moscow Metro comprises 12 lines. Neighboring stations of different lines are connected by transfers.

There are two types of transfer in the Metro. One of them is transition () from one line's station to another's through the corridors and escalators. The other is change (), which provides an opportunity to change the line without transition to another station, due to the fact that some stations unite the stops for two lines. The number of transfers during one trip is not limited.
