Dnipropetrovsk Metro Line and Stations
At present, the system stretches over a route length of around seven kilometers while it has around six stations along the length of the network. It begins its journey in the eastern half of the city, close to the Vokzalna Central Railway Station and travels along towards the west before ending at Komunarivska Station. Since its inception in 1995, the system has witnessed a decline in number of passengers which has prompted the management to switch from a five-car system to a three-car one.
As per projections derived from the present expansion plans, the number of stations along the stretch are likely to increase to nine by the year 2017. In the budget of 2014 approved by President Petro Poroshenko, budget allocations have been granted to the Dnipropetrovsk Metropolitan Company so that work on the Metro system can be completed with ease.
