A calendar coefficient of the indexation of tickets for passenger trains – 0.93 – will be in effect from October 1 to December 24, 2012.

Thus, compared to September 2012, when the coefficient was 1.02, the price of tickets for passenger trains will be reduced.

Tickets for all categories of cars (first class, second class, third class cars of ordinary trains and first class, second class, third class cars of high-speed trains), apart from suburban trains will be indexed.

For example, for the period until December 24, 2012 (with 0.93 calendar coefficient and 1.0 for days of week) the basic price of tickets (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) for train 91 Kyiv-Lviv will be the following: second class – UAH 162.33 and for third class – UAH 78.68. At present the prices of tickets for train 91 are UAH 171.54 and UAH 82.73 respectively.

The price of tickets for Intercity + trains will be reduced.

Thus, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, the prices of ticket for second class of the Ukrainian Express will be the following: Kyiv-Kharkiv UAH 214.79 (before October 1 – UAH 234.42), Kyiv-Lviv UAH 239.24 (UAH 261.23), and Kyiv-Donetsk UAH 285.63 (UAH 312.10).

For the first class the prices will be the following: Kyiv-Kharkiv UAH 316.06 (before October 1 – UAH 334.53), Kyiv-Lviv UAH 354.96 (UAH 375.76), and Kyiv-Donetsk UAH 421.79 (UAH 446.62).

In addition, the price of tickets is adjusted with coefficient for calendar periods and days of week. Thus, for Thursdays and Saturdays there is a 10% discount on the basic cost, and 10% extra is charged on Fridays and Sundays.

If a return ticket for Intercity + trains is bought, they are sold at a 10% discount.
