RZD the Russian Rail Operator has announced a new project to pilot true e-tickets on selected routes in Russia.  This will allow passengers to board without a physical paper ticket by only showing their passport when boarding the train.


RZD call this scheme "e-registration".


 

1. The date of introduction of the pilot project is 1st June 2009.

 

2.  The selected trains and routes:
  • Moscow – St-Petersburg (trains № 55/56, 23/24, 3/4, 159/160, 165/166),
  • Moscow –  Nizhny Novgorod – Moscow (trains № 61/62, 119/120),
  • Moscow – Kazan – Moscow (trains № 49/50).

3. These trains won’t be reflected in our online system and e-tickets may only be obtained by contacting our operators and specifically requesting them.

 

4. E-registration will work only for direct routes and stop-overs are not allowed. 

 

5. If a passenger exchanges an e-voucher for a physical ticket at a rail station their e-registration is automatically cancelled.

 

6.  E-registration can be cancelled at a railway station in the booking office or by an e-terminal machine not later than one hour  before the departure of a train.

Real Russia will have the capability to provide e-registration for passengers but this will be by request only.

Delighted to see this development and your involvement in it. (I expect you pushed them into the idea!)
Congratulations.

Any chance of Moscow / St P <--> Helsinki coming any time soon?

(We bought family tx SPb >--< Helsinki the other day over the phone in SPb, and apart from the courier delivery charge the tickets were wrong when they came!

Well you can always order e-voucher from us, that is we book the tickets and send you a voucher by email that you print and exchange for tickets at the station. That is available for all routes out of Russia - but not all into.
