Poland – Ukraine – Belarus and Russia sign agreement in passenger transport for UEFA 2012

On 13 April, 2012, railway companies in Belarus, Poland, Russia and Ukraine signed a memorandum of cooperation on transport services for the European Football Championship UEFA 2012.

“We are pleased that the task of providing mass transportation of passengers in Poland has enabled us to develop new technologies of transportation, which previously were not used. I am sure that new approaches will contribute to further growth in traffic between the two countries”, said RZD’s Vice President Mikhail Akulov.

According to the memorandum, parties agreed to provide additional passenger trains for carrying football fans between cities of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Poland. They will allocate special rolling stock, organise cooperation in order to optimise custom duties and border crossing procedures for participants.

Especially for the European Football Championship, parties developed a concept of connection railway traffic between Russia and Poland. In Terespol, passengers of a number of trains running from Moscow to Warsaw will change from JSC “FPK” trains to “PKP Intercity” trains, and passengers traveling from Warsaw to Moscow will take Polish trains to Brest, and then make change to Russian trains. This will assure more effective use of existing rolling stock and infrastructure capabilities.

By now, schedule for trains departing from Moscow has been already developed under the onditions created by the market demand for UEFA 2012.
