St. Petersburg Metro to Run Overnight in high season

St. Petersburg Metro to Run Overnight in high season
26.04.2013

The St. Petersburg Metro has announced plans to launch a night train to connect the two sides of the Neva River during the summer.

A test run for the night train will begin during the May holidays with regular services scheduled to start in June.

Last year there were lengthy discussions in the city about the St. Petersburg Metro operating longer hours during the summer period when the bridges are raised at night.
