For students from the southern regions of the country, where there are restrictions on air travel, discounted train tickets should be introduced. This initiative was made by State Duma deputy Yevgeny Fedorov, a letter was sent to the head of the Ministry of Transport Vitaly Savelyev.
According to Fedorov, many students from the south of Russia enter universities in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other distant cities. Accordingly, due to the temporary restriction of flights in the region, some airports have not been operating for more than a year. The deputy believes that this creates certain inconveniences for students who want to visit relatives and relatives.
“In this regard, I ask you to evaluate the feasibility of introducing a preferential regime for the purchase of railway tickets for students from the south of Russia studying in the Central and other federal districts, for example, on the terms of schoolchildren – with a 50% discount – for trains, following to the student’s home region or from this region to the place of study, ”RT quotes the text of the appeal.
