The Youngest Metro In The World

Posted on January 24, 2012 by

It is just one month old and it took them 23 years to build it. It is 8.5 km long and people use it more as an attraction. We are going to explore the Almaty Metro, Kazakhstan.

The Almaty Metro opened on December 1st, 2011. Construction works began in the Soviet time in 1988 but after the fall of the USSR, the construction was frozen to be resumed in 2005.

Photography is prohibited here unless you have an authorization.

People with a bicycle and dogs are allowed to use the metro which is good.

To enter the metro, you may use either your multi entry smart card that expires in 90 days or a token valid during one day. Both of them are protected with micro chips.

Saturday is a token’s day. Each Saturday, people may bring their invalid tokens for free reprogramming.

Now, it would not be a problem for special needs people or mommies with a stroller to get into the metro.

So far, people have been coming here for a joyride.
