“In April 2018 online ticket sales accounted for 21.3% of the total number of travel documents performed through the automated system Express at the Belarusian Railways ticket offices. The ongoing efforts of the Belarusian Railways to improve the sales system contribute to the gradual increase of online ticket sales,” the press service said.

Passengers have been actively using self-service ticket machines as well. In January-April 2018, a total of 348,800 tickets were sold through them. Last year, a new service was added to the software of self-service terminals allowing people of the retirement age, to buy travel documents (tickets) at a reduced price from 1 May to 30 September. By the end of 2018, the plans are in place to install 26 multi-language self-service ticket terminals.

In April 2018, a new fare payment service was introduced with the help of smart cards. Smart cards can be replenished at any railway ticket office along the route. In April 2018 the service was used by more than 2,100 passengers.
