St. Petersburg plans to launch metro at night

A shuttle between metro stations Nevskiy prospect and Gorkovskaya may be launched from 1 a.m. till 3 a.m. in St. Petersburg, said the Press-Secretary of the city government Andrey Kibitov in its Twitter.

The shuttle will link the two sides of the Neva River. The city government is considering upon the expanding the night bus routs as well, according to the official.

At night time at the period of navigation St. Petersburg is divided into three parts (the Northern, the Southern and Vasilievsky Island), what makes much trouble to the city dwellers and tourists, as there are no tunnels under the Neva River.  

Since July 2012 night buses started running in the city, duplicating the metro routs. Though they are available only on weekends and on holidays.
