    The map created in the studio has won in an open competition organized by the Moscow Department of Transportation that took place November 1, 2012 till January 31, 2013. The map first appeared in the Moscow metro cars on May 23, 2013.

    Moscow Metro rules

    The list of Moscow Metro rules is mandatory for every metro car. The rules themselves are not to be shortened or altered in any way per resolution № 844-ПП of the Moscow City Council dated September 16, 2008. For the first time in the history the list is laid out in a welcoming way.

    The type size is larger, while the text lines are shorter, which contributes to higher legibility. The message is reinforced visually: the numbers of prohibiting sections are marked with the recognizable stop sign.


    Pictograms

    The main rules of self-conduct in metro cars are doubled with pictograms: no drinking of alcoholic beverages, no smoking, and no placing of private ads. Two other pictograms remind the passengers and metro employees to not take any video without written permission, but to take photos freely.

    No smoking, photography’s welcomed

    Maps on an Info-SOS kiosk

    Info-SOS emergency call kiosks are located in the center of each station and also at metro entrance halls. An abbreviated map version is placed to the left from the speaker at a passenger’s eye level.
