    Official Moscow Metro map for stations

    Task: to create a Metro map to be placed in stations with information about transport, sights and parks.

    By the request of the Moscow Department of Transport the official Metro map for stations was created at the studio.


    The station map adheres to the proven and time-tested design principles that were introduced in the map for cars.

    Ground transport

    One of the ideas of the new map is to increase the role of commuter trains and surface transport in the Moscow transportation system. Using surface transport reduces the load on the Metro and is often faster and more convenient. For example, getting from Schukinskaya to Sokol via Metro requires traveling through 11 stations and a transfer, while taking the tram is faster and easier.

    The map shows the routes that connect neighboring Metro lines, but does not include any details or intermediate stops. Only the routes with waiting time of less than ten minutes are chosen, as the main aim is to provide passengers with a faster travel alternative.

    Transfer stations of commuter trains and bus stops are marked with circles, just like Metro transfer stations. Aeroexpress, trolleybus, tram and bus (including express bus) routes also maintain this style.
