Moscow roads to turn into autobahns

The capital’s experiments with designated bus lanes have helped speed up public transportation, researchers have found.

When City Hall analyzed the effect bus lanes have had on city traffic, it turned out that the changes decreased the number of delays on bus routes by almost a half.

The speed of the routes has gone up by 7 percent on average since the experiment was launched in 2009.

Eight more highways will get bus lanes by the end of next year.

The effort is a major part of the public transportation development strategy outlined by City Hall.

It became a cornerstone of the latest anti-traffic plan unveiled under the new mayor.
