Russian Railways service tests compartments for children

Russian Railways service tests compartments for children

Train № 109/110 with new formation has departed from Kursky train station in Moscow to Anapa on 22nd of August at 23:10 . The 2nd class carriages of the train include compartments for children. The new service will be tested during one month.

The interior design of the new compartment has been developed especially for children, whilst the lower berths are equipped with the rails that prevent children from falling. The table board games and toys will make the journey more entertaining. The berths for passengers with kids are located in the first compartment of each carriage (the berths with numbers from 1st to 4th). In total, 4 carriages are equipped with the compartment for kids.

With the project development, the opinion and passengers' preferences have been considered. Moreover, everyone, who will have an opportunity to travel in the new carriages can leave a review of the new service. The customer reviews and other parameters will become the source for analysis of the service performance. Based on the performance results will be made the decision if the new service should be implemented on other routes.

The ticket price for the berth in the compartment for children is not different from the regular ticket's price. The tickets can be purchased in the ticket offices both at the railway station and online. Online, berths in the compartments for children are marked with a special symbol.

Also in the Moscow - Anapa train, has been opened the "Library of the young traveler". This route is 11th, where such service is available. In all 4 carriages will be available 35 books of Russian and foreign authors, among which are the books by Agnii Barto, Alexander Volkov, Aleksey Tolstoy, Astrid Lindgren, Joanne Rowling, Korney Chukovsky, Mark Twain, Nikolay Nosov, Pamela Travers, Samuil Marshak. The books for the trains have been provided by the company "Chitay-Gorod".
