A relevant letter is sent to regional authorities


FAS recommends that making tariff decisions for regulating commuter passenger transportation by rail for the next period, Regional Energy Commissions should evaluate jointly with the authorities and the subjects of regulation the expediency of increasing the number of routes in the interests of passengers.


“Leasing wagons, companies pay a particular amount per year to “Russian Railways”. If the number of routes is increased, then the rate per one passenger will most likely decrease, the company will be able to gain more profit and there will be no need for additional subsidizing and increasing tariffs. We suggest that the Regional Energy Companies should estimate an optimal number of routes, that will be beneficial for both companies and passengers”, commented Deputy Head of FAS Alexander Redko.


FAS recommends to make estimates using the approved Guidelines*.
