Night routes: How many passengers use public transport at night
The H1 route between the city centre and Sheremetyevo Airport is the most popular night route.

Last year, over 1.4 million passengers used buses during night hours. Each night, buses and trams carry about 4,000 people.

“The H1 buses that circulate from Sheremetyevo Airport to the city centre are the most popular route,” said Deputy Mayor of Moscow and Head of the Department of Transport and Road Infrastructure Development Maxim Liksutov. “A total of 247,000 people have taken the route this year. Night buses and trams are one of the most comfortable and convenient ways to get home late at night when the rest of the transit system is off duty.”

There are 13 night bus routes connecting outer city districts with the centre of Moscow. The interchange hub for nine buses is at the Kitai-Gorod metro station. All-night routes to Kitai-Gorod include the H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, H6, H7, H11 and лю10 buses. This hub is a change point for other buses or trams, too. 

All-night routes have a frequency interval of 30 minutes, with 15 minutes on the B loop (circle) route. To learn more about bus schedules, visit the Mosgortrans website
