The need for an efficient public transport servicing the major passenger routes, the traffic and ecological problems of the capital city implied the construction of a subway network in Sofia. According to the Technical and Economic Feasibility Report approved by the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Bulgaria, the General Scheme for the development of the Metropolitan lines will follow a three-diameter structure, with a total length estimated at 52 km. The system will have 47 stations and after the final stage of its construction the Metropolitan will have a capacity of more than 1 million passengers per day.
