Krasnodar took 12th place in the public transport quality ranking
A+S Transproect, a company operating under the SIMETRA brand, has compiled a rating of Russian cities by the quality of public transport. It included 60 cities from 53 regions of the Russian Federation except for Moscow and St. Petersburg. In preparation, the data for 2019, as for December or the fourth quarter of 2019, was used, if available.
In total, about 40 characteristics of transport services were analyzed, which were combined into five groups. Cities were evaluated by physical and price availability, transport network efficiency, comfort, and convenience, as well as safety and sustainable development.
Krasnodar took 12th place in the ranking gaining 61.5 scores. As noted in the research, the developed network of tram lines supplemented by trolleybuses is a frame of the transport infrastructure of the city.
Among the positive aspects of Krasnodar, a well-established notification system informing citizens about the work of transportation, the availability of a transport card, and the possibility of contactless payment for a trip are noted.
