A basic map of the Katsnelson Metro

The Katsnelson Metro is an urban-suburban transit system, first built in the 1930s, located at Katsnelson. It lies in a large 'C' shape, from the North at Anastasia to the South at Katsnelson's airport. From Anastasia in the North, the line runs through Marshall station in the city centre, branching into 2 north of Katsnelson Central Station. It rejoins at the University, before finally terminating at the airport.

History

Katsnelson's metro system was first built in 1939, with 1 line from Memorial Park to Katsnelson Central Station. It was called the Marshall Line, as it ran through the centre of the city, formerly known as Marshall. The Metro was extended in 1944, with the Anastasia branch and the University branch, forming the Kmet line. The line was fully complete in 1949, with the extension to the Airport and link to the station. The Memorial branch was closed in 1988 following a decrease in passenger numbers and competition from road transport. However, as of today, the Katsnelson Metro system is one of the most successful projects in the region.
