Initially, the station is operating as part of the Nekrasovskaya line with direct service from Nekrasovka to Aviamotornaya. Once the Bolshaya Koltsevaya line opens, Nekrasovskaya trains will terminate here with a cross-platform interchange to that line.[4]

NameEdit

The station is named for the street on which it is situated. Nizhegorodskaya Street in turn is named for Nizhegorodsky Station, which was built in 1861 and closed in the 1950s.[5]

TransferEdit

Out-of-station transfers available to Nizhegorodskaya on the Moscow Central Circle. The basic idea for the interchange node of the station was Moskovskaya station of the Nizhny Novgorod Metro.
