By the beginning of the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup Moscow Metro will introduce a common standard for audio announcements. Official website of the Moscow mayor's office reported that the ads will be dubbed in English on all subway lines. In addition, rules of conduct messages that sound during the ride on the escalators will be also translated into English.
"We are improving the informing system of the public transport as a part of preparations for the Confederations Cup and World Cup. In so doing messages in English can already be heard throughout the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya (purple) and Koltsevaya (brown) Lines. This spring English messages will begin broadcast at the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya (orange) Line, and before the start of the Confederations Cup - at all the lines of Moscow Metro", said Deputy Mayor of Moscow and Head of the Department for Transport and Road Infrastructure Development Maxim Liksutov.
Moscow Ring Railway voice announcements have been already dubbed in English.
