It is reported by the railway magazine Railway Supply with reference to the Kharkiv metro.

The first trains now run at intervals of 30 minutes. As Kharkiv mayor Igor Terekhov told reporters, tomorrow the interval will be reduced to 10 minutes on the Kholodnogorsko-Zavodskaya line, and  to 15 minutes on the other branches.

According to him, they cannot release more trains on the line, since the enemy army bombed the depot, and some of the cars were damaged.

“Some of the railcars cannot be restored. Six trains were affected to varying degrees. In some trains it is needed to replace windows. There are railcars with global damage,” said the mayor.

Igor Terekhov thanked the metro workers who launched the Kharkiv Metro in record time, having done a great job of restoring the infrastructure.

He noted that a lot of work is needed to be done even now – to clean, to protect the subway, so the company announced the recruitment of employees.

“Now 1 200 people work in the metro, and many people who want to find a job have already come,” the mayor said.

Igor Terekhov also noted that they would organize the transportation of passengers from metro stations by other types of public transport in Kharkiv.


Recall that trains in the metro run in all directions, except for the section from the station “Akademika Pavlova” to “Heroiv Pratsi”. In addition, “Derzhprom” works only as a transfer hub, that is, you cannot enter the station and leave it, but you can only go to the station “Universytet” and vice versa. The metro schedule for passengers is from 7:00 to 19:00.
