Kyiv’s Metro subway system is decreasing the frequency of trains during the lockdown.

The city has issued 500,000 passes for use on public transport, including the subways. Subway ridership is now about 200,000 on a weekday. In March, prior to the lockdown, it was 1 million. Prior to the pandemic, in 2019, it was 1.5 million. Last year, the system lost $22 million due to lost fares.
