Russian Railways Cancel 32 Long-distance Trains in the Russian Federation

From April 15, Russian Railways cancel 32 long-distance trains in the Russian Federation.  

      Russian Railways OJSC continues to change the schedule of long-distance trains due to falling passenger traffic, 32 trains will be canceled, Russian Railways reported.

      "Due to the inability of passengers to plan and organize their trips amid an unfavorable epidemiological situation in the country and a significant reduction in demand for trips, the regularity of 32 long-distance trains will be temporarily reduced from April 15, and another 32 trains will be temporarily canceled," Russian Railways reports.

      The decision to adjust the schedule is made only if duplicate trains exist and if the demand for travel is less than 25% of the total number of seats offered, the company notes.

      "In order to ensure the continuity of railway communication with small settlements, additional stops will be introduced for transit trains running on canceled routes. If there are no other trains on the route and it is impossible to offer an alternative option for railway communication, such trains will be preserved," the statement said.

      Russian Railways notes a significant decrease in the loading of trains running on long distance. So, since March 21 of the current year, there has been a more than fifty-percent decrease in the number of passengers   compared to the same period last year. The number of tickets sold in April fell by 76% compared to last year, and by 70% in May. At the same time, 4 times more travel tickets were returned in April than last year, and in May the return increased by more than 7 times by 2019.
