Metropoliten, as a social activity detector

In January 2016 passenger flow in the Baku Metro decreased by 8.2%. The declining trend in passenger  carriage  on the subway is fixed for the first time since 2011, when the cost of travel on the subway was increased three-fold (from 0.05 to 0.15 manat.)

According to the State Statistics Committee (SSC), in January Baku Metro  transported 16.8 million passengers, while a month ago  it totaled 20 million man.

The press service of CJSC "Baku Metro" said Turan, that no changes have been made in the  schedule of  the underground movement. "For those who prefer to use the metro service restrictions are not placed," according to the Metro.

Turan conducted a rapid survey  among passengers about the possible reasons for the decline of passenger flow on the subway. The majority of respondents believe that it is the result of the return of the population outflow from Baku to the regions. In connection with the loss of jobs in the field of trade, catering, construction  people return home.  Certain role in it played a long vacation in the universities.

In 2015,  222 million were transported by the subway, which is by 3.5% more than in the previous year. 08B
