The Moscow metro has launched a big educational project ‘Hello, Moscow!’ (Priviet, Moskva!). This will turn the Moscow transport system into a ‘guide’, telling the passengers about the city in various contexts, and making the everyday commute a more useful and interesting journey. The project creators include HSE staff and alumna.
How does public transport raise the quality of life? How is it becoming a source of economic growth and allowing for new jobs to be created in cities? These questions and more were discussed during an HSE lecture by the Secretary General of the International Association of Public Transport (UITP), Alain Flausch, who was awarded the title of HSE Honorary Professor.
More traffic jams and better public transport may force Moscow's motorists to leave their cars at home, suggest the findings of a recent study 'Dealing with Traffic Jams in Moscow: Factors Influencing the Choice of Private vs. Public Transport'.
