The sales period for the train tickets has been extended
On 10th of December 2017, the OJSC “RZD” has extended the period of the ticket sales for up to 90 days. Currently, passengers are able to book tickets as early as 3 months in advance for all long-distance trains, which operate on a territory of Russian Federation. The only exceptions are trains operated by JSC “PKS”, LLC “Tverskoi Express”, OJSC TK “Grand Service Express”, OJSC “Kuzbass Prigorod”.
The tickets are available for purchase both online and at the ticket’s booth. The iniciative of the longer purchase period belonged to the general public. This solution should improve the customer service and make transportation more accessible. The work on further extension of the sales period will be continued.
Prior to 2016, the sales for the tickets would be open only 45 days prior to departure. This was stated in the “Rules of passengers’, luggage, and cargo transportation on railways”, which was approved by the decree of the Ministry of Transportation of Russian Federation from 19.12.2013, № 473.
