In response to TCDD Tasimacilik's “exorbitant hike” response regarding high-speed train (YHT) tickets, after the arrangement subject to the “discount arrangement” statement, the eyes were turned into new steps to be taken in railway passenger transportation.
Olcay Aydilek from Habertürk took the pulse of TCDD management. Accordingly, there is no step back on new tariffs. The new tariffs concern 7 thousand of around 350 million YHT passengers annually. The aim of TCDD Tasimacilik is to decrease the loss, which is 1 billion TL per year, gradually; To increase the number of passengers and the quality of service especially in the business class preferred by business people. No new regulation is envisaged in the YHT ticket tariffs after the "discount adjustment". After the increase in food service quality, the increase in “business class” ticket prices is viewed with certainty.
TCDD Tasimacilik took some important steps regarding YHT ticket prices, effective from the first days of this month. First, arrangements were made for business class tickets. As of January 3, "business class" discounts have been completely removed.
Then, the price advantage of the multi-round trip tickets used by those who travel on the same line (eg between Ankara-Eskişehir or Ankara-Konya) was eliminated and the discounts applied to these tickets were significantly reduced. After this arrangement, new tariffs were put into practice.
