The extensions of Line 2 are likely to increase ridership across the network.

POLAND: Metro Warszawskie tested running Line 1 trains at 2 min headways during the morning peak on June 27.

The operator expects that extending the east-west Line 2 at both ends would generate more ridership not only on that line, but on the north-south Line 1 as well. It is therefore exploring ways to increase capacity.

The shortening of headways from the usual 2 min 20 sec required 42 trains to be in service instead of the usual 36. Extra drivers were used for faster turnaround at the termini of Kabaty and Młociny.
