Free travel and new ways for tourists to travel: what CSPC is doing to prepare for visitors to the World Cup

21.02.2018

The Central Suburban Passenger Company has begun actively preparing its passenger infrastructure for the 2018 World Cup. During the tournament, from June 14 to July 15, the company is preparing for an increase in the number of passengers and plans to transport more than 120,000 fans and volunteers from both Russia and abroad. Travel for fans, volunteers and special delegations going to the matches will be free of charge. A distinctive feature of the CSPC infrastructure during the championship will be its tourist navigation. At the largest stations, as well as at those located near the stadiums, it will be presented in English. Tournament visitors will be offered tours of Moscow Region's historical places, as well as those of other regions: new audio guides will be specially developed and existing ones translated into English. CSPC is paying particular attention to measures to ensure transport and anti-terrorism security aboard suburban electric trains during the 2018 World Cup. To protect trains from acts of unlawful interference, a transport security unit has been established, which includes rapid reaction teams that will carry out searches, additional searches, repeated searches, surveillance and (or) interviews in order to ensure transport safety. It will carry out inspections of individuals, baggage , hand luggage and personal belongings held by individuals, and other material objects of an animate and inanimate nature in order to detect objects and substances (weapons, explosive substances or other devices, objects and substances where there exist prohibitions or restrictions on movement into the transport safety zone or in any part thereof). Railway transport to a varying degree has been used at all previous major football tournaments. For example, in Brazil, where the most recent world championship was held, there is no developed system of railways, so the burden was put entirely on air transport. Then, at Euro-2016 in France, emphasis was placed on the railways: specially branded trains traveled throughout the country. Russia is unique in that it is not only actively using rail transport, but it is also providing free travel to fans. The World Championship matches will be held in 11 Russian cities, including Moscow, which will host 12 matches, including the final, as well as the opening and closing ceremonies of the championship.
