History

The system was launched in 1981 and, unlike most former Soviet rapid transit systems, its stations are not very deep, there are two stations above ground, one shallow and the rest are considered deep underground, however, the depth of those stations is not great (average of 16–22 meters) only three stations are greater than 30 meters, Marshal Baghramyan (around 37.5 meters), Barekamutyun (around 42 meters) and Yeritasardakan (around 37 meters).

Engineering work was of such high quality that during the 1988 Armenian earthquake the Metro managed to withstand the earthquake which paralyzed the whole republic and continued to operate on the next day with only minor damage. However this did put an end to most of the extension projects as finances were diverted to reconstruction of the destroyed infrastructure elsewhere in Yerevan and Armenia.

Schedule 🕐️

The underground system operates between 6:00-23:00, with a frequency of 5 minutes.
