The Moscow Metro has launched a project for use of bilingual floor markings and signs. At the first stage of the project, markings in Russian and in English appeared at three metro stations (Pushkinskaya, Chekhovskaya, and Tverskaya).
For three months, up to May 21, the project will be “tested” at the mentioned three stations. The idea of introducing floor mark
ings is based on experience of other countries (such as Singapore and Hong Kong). In future, if the Metro management and passenger
s find the experiment
successful, such markings
will also appear at other stations of the Moscow
Names of the stations on the markings are written in Cyrillic characters and (below) in Latin characters. Besides, the direction for exit to the city (Way Out) is provided in Russian and in English. The platform
s have markings indicating locations of doors after the stop; such markings allow the passengers to precisely locate where the car doors will open.
