    Buy a Jeton in the toll. 8/2017 current, 1 ride with 1200 sum all common charges. Without good scanning interval rate is easy. Jeton in ticket machines, prathom he. Dim's premises, vehicles, but a safe overall impression. Easy-to-use and fewer flights. The station can transfer a route from station is different. Also note a short time doors open at the station. Baggage screening when entering the premises when entering a subway station. You say that policemen stationed, rest assured.

    Metro is still military connotations, photography is prohibited. Osaka's subway system like high ceilings home Kip of the coin in the cash to buy, enter the gate of the pivot bar, Dim lighting. Vehicle is a bit old-fashioned, with a cooling function is a pretty cool car it was.

    If you find yourself in Tashkent and you get the chance, take a ride on the subway, the stations are very nice. It is the first subway that was performed in Central Asia and today connects much of the city. But be careful: you cannot take pictures inside the stations because they are considered works of military significance.
