DID NOT FIT. Authorities have urged people to change from personal cars to public transport. But it also happened on the morning of the collapse. Stops on the hundreds of passengers who just couldn’t get into the salons. For example, the real pandemonium was on the light rail stations. “Stop, “gnat Yura” in the direction of the station. To leave, had to go to the opposite side, to get to the final “three” and from there to go to the station. And such was Poltava, about a hundred,” complained Alexander Mokienko.

Were overcrowded and platform orelectricity. “Kyivpastrans” warned that “ground transport is organized in a special mode of movement”. However, what kind of regime is not explained. Therefore, the residents sneered: “Perhaps the absence of any graphics.” “I left the car, wanted to go on the bus. In an hour, so it back to the Parking lot for the car” — says a resident of the Desnyansky district Igor Prikhodko.
He joked: “but pits not seen on the roads”
On the impotence of public utilities and transport to the elements, the citizens have traditionally responded with irony. Standing in traffic jams, amusing comments about the “snow Apocalypse” left the drivers: “But the pits on the roads is not seen”, “Guys, they say, in the subway there is no traffic”, “Time to make the penguin”, “it’s Snowing, the city stands”, “Snow days, you have to declare public holidays and weekends”, “10 points, and it’s not a rating for cleaning”.
There are new snow “photoshopped pics”. This time their hero became not only the capital’s mayor and workers of municipal services, but the meme-pet recent weeks “Idun” which “looks for” minibuses and spring.
