So, one of the tasks is to replace diesel buses with electric buses. Today, about 600 electric buses are running along the city streets, and it is planned to purchase more than 1.5 thousand by 2023.
The second task is the construction of the Big Circle Line of the Moscow metro. The length of the line will be 70 km. According to the concept of green bonds, the funds are planned to be used to finance the construction of 18 stations and 43.8 km of lines, as well as the reconstruction of three stations and four kilometers of BCL lines.
According to experts, at least 10 thousand cars will stop going to the city streets every day, due to the opening of traffic on new sections of the BCL in 2023, which will lead to a decrease in emissions of pollutants by 885.5 tons per year, and carbon dioxide – by 20.9 thousand tons per year.
