The Moscow public transport network (see also 14.1/14.8) includes a variety of modes which provide diverse transportation facilities and link even the most remote parts of the city to its centre. This system is progressing continuously, thus offering Muscovites new opportunities for easy and quick travel about the city. Moreover, its further development planning currently takes into consideration the expected Games-related requirements.
In accordance with the Olympic Transport Plan, at Games time the public transport will be mostly engaged in servicing spectators. The metro and buses are expected to play a special role in this respect. Furthermore, the number of bus routes will be increased due to the additional Olympic transportation network to be introduced. This will fully secure direct and convenient access to the Olympic venues for spectators.
By 2012, the city public transport system will have additional capacities and resources. These expanded capabilities will help facilitate a number of goals related to the overall Olympic transport effort. In particular, it refers to the transport arrangements for the airports and a number of sports venues.
