The Kiev Metro (Ukrainian: Київський метрополітен or Київське метро) is a metro system that is the mainstay of Kiev public transport. It was the first rapid transit system in Ukraine and the third one built in the USSR (after Moscow and St Petersburg Metros). It now has three lines with a total length of 65.18 kilometres (40.50 miles) and 50 stations as you can see in Metro map Kiev. The system carries 1.422 million passengers daily, accounting for 38% of the Kiev public transport load. In 2011, the total number of trips exceeded 519 million. One of the deepest stations in the world, Arsenalna (at 105.5 metres, 346 ft), is found on the system.

The metro follows a standard Soviet triangle three line, six radii layout that intersects in the centre where the stations are built very deep underground and could potentially double as bomb shelters. Presently, there are 50 stations as its shown in Metro map Kiev. The former comprise 21 stations, of which 17 are of pylon type, 3 are of column type. Of the 23 sub-surface stations, 14 stations are of pillar-trispan type, two are side-platform pillar bi-spans, 7 more are single-vaults, and a further one is an asymmetrical double deck bispan. In addition, 6 stations are located above ground, of which four are surface level, and two are flyover. Most of the stations have large vestibules, some on surface level whilst others are underground interlinked with subways.

A single ride costs 2.00 hryvnia ($0.25) regardless of destination and number of transits within the metro as its mentioned in Metro map Kiev. The ride is paid by plastic tokens and contactless cards when entering the metro. Plastic tokens are used for turnstiles; the tokens can be bought from cashiers at all stations or from automatic exchange machines that exchange 2 and 10 Hryvnia bills into tokens. The current tokens are of blue color; before 2008 green tokens were used that are no longer valid. Contactless (RFID-based, MIFARE Classic and Ultralight) cards are also used to enter the metro. The card can be purchased for a small fee (7 hryvnias; refundable should one want to return the card) from cashiers and loaded for up to 50 trips with the same per-ride price as tokens.

The Sviatoshynsko-Brovarska Line, is the first line of the Kiev Metro, dating back to 1960. It includes some of the system more historically significant stations, like Arsenalna, which at 105.5 meters is the deepest in the world and the next station Dnipro, which although the tunnel follows a descent, appears above ground level as its shown in Kiev subway map. All of the stations on the eastern bank of the Dnieper river are either ground or above ground level, this attributed to a similar experiment like Moscow Filyovskaya Line however the warmer Ukrainian climate prevented the stations there from being severely deteriorated, which was why extensions in 1968 and 1979 were kept from going underground. The five original stations are extremely beautiful in architecture and decoration as they managed to survive Nikita Khrushchev struggle with decorative "extras". The subway line colour on maps is red.

The Kurenivsko-Chervonoarmiyska Line, is the second line of the Kiev Metro, first opened in 1976, it extended northwards along the right bank of the Dnieper river and began deviating from the river towards the southwest as you can see in Kiev subway map. As the current stations were built in the 1970s and 1980s, architecturally the line shows some of the best examples of late-Soviet architectural features. This subway line is coloured blue on maps. Extension of Line 2 (Kurenivsko-Chervonoarmiyska) to Teremky will extend the line to Kiev south-western districts of Holosiiv and Teremky. Plans: Ipodrom and Teremky - in 2012.

The Syretsko-Pecherska Line is the third line of the Kiev Metro, first opened in 1989. It extends the metro system southeast along the right bank of the Dnieper River before crossing it on a covered bridge and then east from there. The northern section extends further northwestwards as its mentioned in Kiev subway map. The line is one of the newest and shows some post-independence decorative motifs. Technically, it is also a great development, with most of the platforms longer and wider than older sections and with some stations having provision for disabled access. The subway line is coloured green on maps.
