Tramways

The tramway system development in Kazan dates back to more than a hundred years ago. A tram is considered to be one of the most comfortable modes of transport because its functioning is not affected by the city traffic. Kazan’s tram network features 6 routes, one of which was launched in late 2012 and currently links six districts of the city (it takes one hour to travel from one end of the city to another). Three-section low-floor high-speed trams circulate along this route. All of them are equipped with wheelchair ramps for people with disabilities.

Trolleybuses

A trolleybus is an environmentally friendly mode of transport with a convenient schedule (every 8-10 minutes). 11 trolleybus routes are currently in operation in Kazan. Just like buses and tramways, trolleybuses are equipped with GLONASS/GPS navigation systems to ensure drivers’ compliance with schedules, speed limits and traffic regulations.

Metro

The Kazan Metro was opened during Kazan’s 1,000th anniversary celebrations on August 27, 2005. It was the first metro built after the fall of the Soviet Union. Today, the Kazan Metro features 10 stations with the total route length of 17.3 kilometres.

The metro plays an important role in the development of Kazan’s public transport network. It runs through the parts of the city situated on opposite banks of the Kazanka River and connects two largest residential neighbourhoods.
