A small trolleybus system primarily designed as a feeder to Moscow’s metro. The Khimki network penetrates the boundaries of Moscow proper, with suburban trolleybuses running to the Planernaya Metro Station. There is, however, no physical connection to Moscow’s trolleybus system. The Line 1 provides local service within Khimki, while the Lines 202 and 203 are feeder services to the metro. The metro feeder service might seem inadequate provided passenger flow potentials, especially considering plentiful competition from diesel bus services. The trolleybus service is mostly reliable, with satisfactory timetable adherence.
