Over 150 vending machines have been installed in 21 metro stations. They sell alcohol-free beverages, including hot coffee, snacks and bouquets of flowers. In addition to this, kiosks have been opened in several metro stations, including Mitino, Yugo-Zapadnaya, Lermontovsky Prospekt and Varshavskaya.

“The kiosks and vending machines will offer different items, including up-to-date newspapers , snacks and non-alcoholic beverages not only to passengers but also to people who live nearby.The kiosks and vending machines won’t get in the way of passengers,” said Deputy Mayor of Moscow, Head of the Moscow Department for Transportation and Road Infrastructure Development Maxim Liksutov.

The official added that the kiosks can also be found in a number of well-developed pedestrian underpasses which have energy-efficient lighting and new steps, floor and wall covering, electric wiring and doors.

“The underpasses have become clean, light and comfortable,” the Deputy Mayor noted.

In all, 21 metro stations have been fitted with about 250 new kiosks (from 4 to 9.5 square metres) and trade pavilions (from 10 to 100 square metres). They sell food, accessories, clothing, household items, printed matter and theatre tickets. The sites where vending machines, pavilions and kiosks are situated, were auctioned off. Winners included over 60 companies, mostly representatives of small businesses. Following the first stage of the bidding, 320 non-permanent trade facilities will be leased. Subleasing is prohibited. Most of the underpasses are provided with both trade pavilions with kiosks and vending machines. Some stations provide only one of the two trading facilities.

Not all the underpasses have been fitted with pavilions and vending machines. The work will continue this year, which will require more auctions to be conducted.
