In Russia sharply rose in price tickets in economy class cars for the summer months. Such data are the national associations of the passengers gave to the Federal Antimonopoly service (FAS), according to “Izvestia”.
We are talking about trains that depart in June or July 2019. After receiving numerous complaints from citizens, the organization’s experts analyzed the prices of the tickets in 12 directions and found that the hardest — twice — risen travel from Moscow to Kaliningrad (100 per cent, 4021 ruble), from Moscow to Adler (97%, 4143 rubles), and from Novosibirsk to Tomsk (93 percent, 1507 rubles).
Less — 65-68% — increased the price of tickets from Moscow to Saint Petersburg, Smolensk and Pskov.
The head of the Russian Association of passengers Ilya Zotov noted that part of the rise in price of tickets is justified because the carrier needs to update the rosters, but the prices should not increase in two times. The Association asked the FAS to check the actions of the carrier.
Federal passenger company (FPC, a subsidiary of Russian Railways) denies a sharp rise in price of tickets. In the FSP explained that the big difference in price due to seasonal price increase and discounts, which acted in previous months.
Ticket prices in economy class are set by the government, and the losses of the Railways kompensiruet from the state budget. Tariffs are set by the FAS, while the increase in tariff from June 14 to September 1, no more than 20 percent.
