Schemes, pictures and figures: new indexes in the subway have confused even Moscow born and bred


Key names of habitual sights at an exit to the city disappear, and somewhere instead of the list of stations it is specified only final by the Photo: Anton Kardashov/AGN Moscow Globalization has reached also the Moscow subway. At any deviation from a habitual route passengers face in a stupor new indexes. Muscovites have got used to be guided in the subway in the flowers: blue Arbat and Pokrovsk line, orange Kaluga and Riga. The fact that colors on circles left saves situation a little. At first these sharp changes were unusual, the Muscovite Anna remembers, but now in the subway correction of mistakes is obviously conducted: "I have got used that always on transitions all stations, the complete list, and here some figures have been specified. Plus was removed by details what stations on this branch. Plus numbering. Even to me, the radical Muscovite, it was difficult. I moved on memory, but if there was any other direction, I was confused, not always went for transitions which are necessary to me. First, on indexes there was a small print, but they began to modify somehow. Probably, people complained because they began to do then more detailed plates — already both figures were, and names of all stations, and a font have made larger. But I had liked the fact that now there are indexes on a floor". It became more difficult to find the necessary way out to the city, the Muscovite Vera says: "Floor indexes very good, but they are very often not visible, especially in rush hour. It is bad that some indexes have changed for exits, not only with the name of streets, but also geolocations, for example the shopping center "Okhotny Ryad" isn't specified above any more, and is unclear in what party to leave on the platform.

Recently I have no this problem at all because, first, many indexes have appeared, began to designate what I didn't notice earlier, some geographical locations, it is possible to reach the same Zaryadye park according to indexes". The feelings mixed: there is something good, and something sharply isn't pleasant, especially at new stations, Moscow born and bred Andrey says: "Design, probably, pleasant, modern, everything is very beautiful. But I already repeatedly faced that you don't know where an exit. You ask the police officer — he doesn't know too. And suddenly you remember: same lebedevsky studio, they fashionably have written now all this on a floor, and you start walking and to watch where on a floor way out is written and where there is this arrow. And on the sign when you go out of the car, there is no it, and it is very inconvenient moment". The system of navigation of the Soviet sample doesn't cope any more: the subway grows, the number of stations arrives, and habitual indexes — shining suspended a box with names of stations — remain the same size, the font becomes more small, and in
