The successful implementation of the Olympic Transport Plan is estimated to require participation of approximately 8,850 personnel (main/ancillary), including the necessary drivers, technical staff and traffic control officers. This staff will be entrusted with key responsibilities as to the comprehensive servicing of VIP/dedicated transport, as well as additional Olympic routes for the spectators. The above personnel also comprise the staff and volunteers of the Moscow OCOG Transport Department.
The staging of the Olympic Games will obviously result in additional demand on the city’s public transport system. Accordingly, virtually all its staff will play a role in the organisation of transport at Games-time. Additional transportation personnel specially recruited and trained for the Games will be relatively small in number due to the large complement of city transportation personnel currently on staff.
Particular attention will be paid to the development and implementation of the pre-Olympic training and testing programmes for the entire system of major Moscow transport companies.
