Tashkent has the only subway system in Central Asia, and one of the cleanest, safest, and most reliable mass transit systems in the former Soviet Union. We road the subway from Chilanzar line and got off at the Peoples Friendship square.

The ride offered a great opportunity for people watching as all sorts of persons got on and off. The car was clean and was in a retro Soviet style mid 70's marine blue.

Tokens cost 10 sum, but there are rumors that this will increase shortly. The tokens are made of hard blue plastic, and are inserted into an entrance gate.

Type: Subway/Metro

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
