Key initiatives until 2025:

  • Building an efficient route network and train schedule;
  • Promoting high-speed and ultra high-speed railway transport (up to 600 new passenger cars planned to be purchased annually);
  • Improving passenger experience, introducing innovations and quality standards (by 2025, the share of e-tickets for long-haul trains will reach 70%);
  • Introducing the world's best practices for the development of multimodal transport;
  • Introducing standards to provide services to passengers with reduced mobility.
With these initiatives, passenger turnover under the base case scenario will grow to 152.4 bn pkm by 2025.
