Moscow metro passengers can now charge their smartphones and other electronic devices directly in stations. The pilot project, in which special stands for charging electronic devices were installed at the Vystavochnaya and Kotelniki stations, has been recognised as a success.
Now similar stands will appear in the halls of 27 Moscow metro stations. They are equipped with 220-volt outlets and USB ports.
“Electronic devices have become an integral part of modern life. It is extremely important to always be in touch. Thanks to the stands located at 27 stations, metro passengers will always be able to charge a smartphone battery that has unexpectedly run low,” head of the Moscow Metro Dmitry Pegov said.
Sixteen stations of the Moscow Central Circle also provide 24 panels for charging mobile phones, tablets and other devices. In addition, USB outlets are provided in the cars of the new-generation “Moscow” train, which will start running along the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line in the first three months of this year.
