Scheme of the entire municipal transport of Kiev
Transport in Ukraine is represented by airplane, rail, road communication. Currently, all traditional types of ground public transport operate in Kiev: tram, trolley bus, bus, fixed-route taxis and funicular . A project for a city electric train has also been launched.
The diagram shows all bus, trolleybus and tram routes, as well as metro lines and a city electric train. Designer Konstantin Cherepovsky spent 16 months on this work.
The transport scheme was not ordered by the city administration or transport utility company, this is a personal initiative of the designer. According to Konstantin, he saw that there could theoretically be a demand for such a printed circuit, since few people use Internet services to select a route in middle age and especially after 50 years (Internet penetration in the latter category is less than 50%). In addition, the lack of an offline map is a big problem for tourists and visitors.
Another reason for the creation of the scheme was that Kiev has a relatively small network of rail transport - entire areas have access to urban public transport only in the form of a bus or trolley bus, such as Solomenka or Vinogradar. Therefore, in addition to the metro, there are 140 land routes. Separately, for interested designers, Konstantin wrote the article The Making Of , in which he told his way of developing the scheme. In addition, the article contains links to similar works in other countries, the designer used them as Projects.
There are no minibuses in the scheme, since there are more than 300 of them, urban and suburban together. But the cycle route Troieschyna-center, railway stations and airports, river station, funicular, the main tourist sites are noted.
