Azerbaijan, Baku, May 25, said. Trend E. Ismaylov /

In the beginning of August, the Baku Metro will receive 50 new devices to download travel cards, the Head of Baku Metro Tagi Ahmadov said on May 25.

"These machines will be established in almost all the subway stations with the exception of Bakmil and Jafar Jabbarli stations," said Ahmadov.

Bakmil station serves only 800 passengers per week and Jafar Jabbarli station - 800-900 passengers per day

"Installing machines at these stations is unprofitable," said Ahmadov.

The Baku metro functions since 1967 (from Icheri Sheher station to Nariman Narimanov station with three intermediate stations). Seven stations of the Baku metro, including Icheri Sheher, Sahil, 28 May, Jafar Jabbarli, Khatai, Nizami and Elmler Akademiyasi, are deep-laid stations, Bakmil is surface and the rest is shallow-laid (altogether 20 stations).
