Free services of "Ukrzaliznytsia", which passengers do NOT know about


• Passengers who have purchased paper or electronic tickets have the full right to use the toilets for free at railway stations and stations through which the train runs. It is noted that paid restrooms or paid waiting rooms with enhanced comfort services can work only if the station or train station has their free counterparts.


Clause 36 of the Procedure for serving citizens by railway transport establishes: it is forbidden to open paid toilets instead of free ones. It is also forbidden to expand the area of ​​the paid waiting room, if this will affect the comfort of passengers who are at the train station or station.

• Each passenger has the right to use the refrigerator and microwave oven, which are located in the conductor's compartment, free of charge.


• Every passenger who needs medication can access a free first-aid kit, which is usually kept by the conductor.


• If a passenger is afraid of heights or feels uncomfortable on the top shelf, he has the right to receive special seat belts free of charge.


• In the rules of transportation of citizens by railway transport, it is stated that the passenger has the right not to fold bed linen after use.

• Every passenger who, for any reason, has passed his stop, has the right to return free of charge. To do this, you need to contact the train conductor and present your ticket. After that, an appropriate act on the extension of the validity of the ticket will be drawn up, thanks to which the passenger will be able to reach the final destination indicated on his ticket free of charge.


• If the compartment is equipped with air conditioning, but it turned out to be faulty, each passenger, after notifying the conductor in advance, has the right to transfer to a car with working air conditioning, provided there are free seats there.
