New trolleybus line in Yaroslavl #6 from Bogoyavleniya to Railway Station

There will be a new trollybus line on Bolshaya Oktyabrskaya Street. Now this line, which will be from Main Railway Station to Bogoyavleniya Square, is putting on trial. The first passenger transportation will begin in two days. According to the mayor of Yaroslavl, the work with bus stops and traffic signs is needed to be finished.


Now everybody can appreciate new noiseless trolleybuses. Before that locals of Bolshaya Oktyabrskaya suffered from tram noises. New trolleybuses turned out to be less noisy and more comfortable as well as cheap for the city budget.

There will be six trolleybuses on the line and the traffic interval will be 5 minutes. And now people can get to the city center two ways: #1 and #6 lines of trolleybuses. In the future (after the reconstruction of Moskovskiy prospekt) #6 line will be longer: from the Railway Station to Neftestroy.

More information about new line is also available in Russian.

December 14 is a very cold day


I think the winter is in Yaroslavl now. Everybody felt it today morning when has known about the weather and the degree. It was -25 degrees below zero.

Some bus lines didn't work and people had to wait. For example, buses on line #43 haven't been working all morning. Nonetheless, we are used to suffering fro such weather and sometimes it is enjoyable.

By the way, you can follow a current status of Yaroslavl via webcams.
