The line is served by the Gldani depot (№2), currently 9 three carriage trains are assigned to it. All are the 81-714/717 versions with .5 and .5M modifications

Recent developments and future plans[edit]

The line is extending to the west and some of the construction sites that have been derelict since Soviet times have recently been restarted. Construction of the State University station (Sakhelmtsipo Universiteti), which dates back to the Soviet era and was suspended for 22 years, was restarted in July 2015 and is scheduled to be completed by May 2017.[1] In perspective the line might continue to the east.
