22 Moscow Subway Traffic Jam

Moscow Subway Traffic Jam

Posted on November 17, 2006 by team

That’s a typical day in Moscow city subway. Ok, maybe not typical for all Moscow subway but there are some narrow places so when the peak traffic happens people have to move like that.

If you haven’t see here are some more shots from Moscow subway.

It’s pity the video is without a sound, it was made by cam phone.

    Awful. Imagine someone shouts at that time something like “BOMB!”.

    Is there any Moscow employers that allow flex schedules for people to vary what time they work?

    crazy…but look at the “chandelier” style light fixtures and other details. One of the most beautiful undergrounds in the world, and one of the deepest (your ears pop on the escalators). It used to be illegal to take pictures in the subway (state secret, don’t you know).

    Ah, brings back happy memories.

    Of course, that’s winter, with all the coats on. Try it in summer, as crowded as that, in the second or third week of the hot water being off for maintenance. Adds a certain piquancy to the aroma!

    Happy days, happy days!

    It’s just not possible to be like that everyday… Probably a failure occurred that day… Otherwise people would get killed frequently by being stepped over…

    I visited Moscow this summer, and it was never this bad. But then again, I never rode the subway at rush hour.

  15. dRE says:

    Trust me, on some stations it’s always like that during rush-hours. And people don’t get killed or even injured, because they’re used to it, they know how to deal with it. And shouting “bomb” wouldn’t work either, nobody would even notice that.

    Moscow Subway Human Traffic Jam…

    Now seriously, we thought traveling on mass rapid transit systems was a pain in the ass mainly because you had to run through the heavy crowd and sniff around smelly armpits when everyone is on their way home.
    After watching this video (and thanks t…

    Well I guess the station could be Prospekt Mira on the circle line. Yes, this station is very crowded, but I didn’t saw such a big crowd. Maybe a train was not working or something like this. Try to imagine, what happen it one of the metro trains brake during rush hour. They really work in two minutes rhytm.

  18. V.S. says:

    That’s why some of my friends don’t like moscow metro.
    But I am already used, to this.
