Dnipro in Wikipedia

Dnipro crossed the population of 1 million line in the late 1970s, making it eligible for an underground train system according to Soviet rules. Planning started in 1979 and construction began on 15 March 1982. Construction was slowed considerably in the aftermath of the dissemination of the Soviet Union in 1991. It was stopped after the opening on 29 December 1995. After a renovation of the existing system, new construction has started, but the system is still facing decreasing ridership.

It is not at all clear if the Dnipro has a logo. The one shown is used on the English version of the web site of the system. The same site uses the same logo in red with white lettering below on the Ukranian version of the site. Older system maps show different logos and later ones show no logo at all. The logo shown is a combination of a D and an M in Cyrillic script.



Soviet era arms of Dnipropetrovsk

The czarist arms of the city were replaced with this design. The arms feature on the Dnipropetrovsk token UKD01. The name of the city is spelled in Russian. The upper part refers to construction, while the lower part reflects the river Dniepr. A new design for the city arms came about in 1990.
