According to the official source of Ukrzaliznytsia, from November 1 tickets on Intercity and Intercity + will fall in price by 15%, and if you buy tickets in advance you can save 20-25%.
It is noted that traveling in the middle of the week will be cheaper, and buy a ticket a month before the trip will be very profitable. Intercities currently have directions to all corners of the country, so they are suitable for the majority of the population, especially due to the introduced savings.
The management of Ukrzaliznytsia took such steps after analyzing the occupancy of train cars. Thus, the 2nd class is currently in the same demand as for the coronavirus, and the 1st class is almost not filled.
We remind you that the coronavirus epidemic significantly affected the activities of Ukrzaliznytsia. Thus, according to plans for 2020, there should have been a gradual increase in ticket prices by 2%, but due to reduced demand for domestic relocation and the introduction of quarantine measures, Ukrzaliznytsia has suffered significant losses. Even now, transportation does not pay off in full. That’s why a customer promotion company was introduced.
