All suburban trains including those on the Belorusskaya,, Gorkovskaya, Kazanskaya, Kievskaya, Kurskaya, Rizhskaya, Savyolovskaya, Paveletskaya and Yarovslavskays railway lines, switched to the summer schedule on 26 March.
This means that the number of stops have changed for some trains, while others now service longer routes. Fifteen more trains entered service on 26 March. These don’t normally operate during the autumn-winter period due to lower demand. The added trains will mostly run on Fridays and the weekend, when suburban destinations peak.
The summer schedule routinely starts on the last Sunday of March, mainly because departure and arrival times have to be adjusted for trains that travel to countries where daylight savings time begins. Also, the summer brings about longer routes and increased frequency of service with more trains in operation. Train sheets for suburban trains needs also to be corrected because of changes in long-distance trains’ schedule.
