The solution is aimed at supporting and developing domestic tourism.
Resolution of June 9, 2021 No. 875
Families with children traveling in Russia will be able to buy long-distance train tickets at discounted fares. The state will reimburse carriers for the difference between the regular price and the discounted price. The decree on the rules for subsidizing the new program was signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.
Reduced fares will apply to trips in compartment cars on long-distance trains of all categories. Families with one child or several children under 18 will be able to purchase discounted tickets. The reduced fare will be calculated according to a special formula – as the difference between the cost of a ticket for the selected route in a compartment and 50% of its cost in a reserved seat carriage.
There are no route restrictions – you can buy a ticket in any direction. The program applies to both independent travel and organized tours.
More than 1.3 billion rubles will be required to subsidize preferential tariffs in 2021. The money has already been provided for in the federal budget.
The work is carried out within the framework of the state program “Development of the transport system”.
