More than 70% of Moscow residents are happy with the way mass transit operates in the city, according to a poll conducted by the Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VCIOM).

More than half (53%) of those surveyed believed that improvements have been made over the last year. Only 18% had the opposite opinion, while 24% did not see any noticeable differences.

Above-ground transport is not as popular as the subway – 61% of those polled prefer to travel underground, while 58% use buses, trolley buses and streetcars.
