RUSSIA: The first train equipped with automatic train operation has entered passenger service on Line 5 of the Moscow metro. Testing started in September on Line 8, and two more ATO-equipped trains are due to enter service on Line 5.

The train operates with a driver who has to give authorisation for leaving a station or restarting after a stop, as well as opening and closing the doors. The ATO software allows the train to stop within 300 mm of the platform end.
