11 May 2015
One of the key objectives of the Belarusian Railway is to improve its services and to attract more passengers. For this purpose it aims to timely provide its customers with the latest reference information.
Thus, the Belarusian Railway has recently implemented the MERITS-PRIFIS databases, which contain information on train time table in Western Europe. As a result, passengers may visit a major ticket office of the Belarusian Railway and get to know, how to get from one place in Europe to another, for instance, from Warsaw to Rome, by train. They will be provided detailed information including that on interchanges, ticket price, etc. The system makes it possible to purchase a ticket for a definite train provided there is available accommodation therein.
The Belarusian Railway increases the availability of its services. It resulted in a significant growth of passenger transportation between Belarus and the states of Western Europe. The passenger transportation volume grew by 17.5% in March 2015 compared to February 2015, and there was also a 2.2% growth in April 2015 in comparison with March this year.
Passengers may get the information necessary to plan their trip to Europe at the following railway stations: Minsk Pasažyrski (international ticket offices, ul. Kirova, 2; ticket office No.5, railway terminal), Orša Centraĺnaja, Maladziečna, Baranavičy Palieskija, Baranavičy Centraĺnyja, Luniniec, Brest, Pinsk, Homieĺ, Žlobin, Mahilioŭ, Babrujsk, Asipovičy, Salihorsk, Viciebsk, Polack.
Today, the Belarusian Railway is including the data on the Belarusian trains in this international reference system.
The single customer database was developed under the MERITIS-PRIFIS project. The database allows the members to enhance the sales within their own booking systems all over Europe. Almost all European railway authorities are the members of the project. The data is upgraded on a weekly basis.
