Since September 11, 2018, "Passenger transportation" JSC (hereinafter - the Company) has introduced a flexible system of price regulation for all socially important routes in Kazakhstan. These are 52 main socially important routes, including trailers, except for the routes of formation of other States (trains of the Russian Federation, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Belarus), as well as private carriers.

A flexible system of price regulation was introduced under the program of dynamic tariff management. This is a world practice and is widely used in the work of many air and land carriers.

With a discount of up to 25%, passengers can purchase tickets for any destinations within the country when buying a ticket for 45 days. The discount depends on the number of seats available and the number of days left before the train departure. As we approach the departure date, the price will rise, but not more than 25%.

In addition to the above-mentioned main socially important routes, trains run on 14 more commercial routes, 9 of which are formed by Talgo cars.

According to the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan on commercial routes ticket prices are set by the carrier, taking into account and analyzing such aspects as: passenger traffic, holidays, priority directions, etc.

In this regard, the cost of tickets on these routes can vary from-35% (discount) to +35% and above the base rate. Cash proceeds from the sale of these tickets in commercial routes are directly directed to the development of the Company, the introduction of new services, automation of processes and improvement of technical equipment of the entire wagon fleet.

The national carrier recommends that you plan your trips in advance and purchase train tickets in advance
