To make transit in the city center easier to understand, the new network consists of three types of services: high-frequency, local, and specialized.
High-frequency routes are the backbone of our network and are the longest ones. They don't just go to the city centre, but also across it. For example Leninsky Prospekt buses will flow through to Leningradsky Prospekt. In the same way, Luzhniki will flow through to Semyonovskaya, and Nagatinskaya to Polezhayevskaya. The routes are marked with solid lines on the new map and have a frequency of 5−10 minutes. These are the quickest and the most frequent services in the network.
Local routes are shorter and connect city neighborhoods to central Moscow. Use them for shorter trips or to get to a high-frequency service stop. They have a frequency of 10−15 minutes.
Specialized routes help Muscovites reach My Documents offices, hospitals, multiservice centers and other socially important destinations, where these are not served by other routes. Specialized routes have a frequency of 30 minutes or better.
Public transit will be using a fixed-interval schedule from now on. This means everyone will know that a high-frequency bus from Tverskaya to Leninsky Prospekt will be coming every 8 minutes during peak hours, so even if you missed your bus by just a few moments, you'd be sure to see the next one coming in eight minutes.
This experience is very much like the metro train schedule: it exists yet the passengers don't have to know it. You just come to a transit stop, wait a little bit and then board your bus.
