According to the Head of the Moscow Metro Dmitry Pegov, the monorail system "in fact will work in a tour mode."
"The Moscow Central Circle excursions and our night sightseeing project on the Moscow Metro aroused such a great interest we did not even expect. Now we are thinking in the same way of making the monorail attractive," Pegov told Russian media.
The Moscow monorail network system was opened in 2004. It consists of a single line, located in the North-Eastern Administrative District of the Russian capital. Originally, it had only two trains and worked in tour mode, but in 2008 it changed to a paid transport mode. Since then, the network faced a bevy of criticism in the media and among experts due to its trestle type design, comparatively small capacity, low speeds, and a high cost of service. Authorities have previously announced they would discuss the possibility of closing or reorganizing the system several times.
