How to Read a Sapsan Train Ticket
Sample of Sapsan Train Ticket
Below you can find an example of how a Sapsan train ticket looks like. Such Russian train tickets may be hard to understand, that's why in the guide below there's everything you need to know about what is written on such an E-ticket.On the very top of the E-ticket you can find the ticket number in red in the center, and on the right the order number which is usually the same as your ticket number
A little below on the right you can see your last name, first name initials. Then two letters "ЗЗ" that stand for your travel document code after which you see your passport number info (partially) and date of birth.
In the first column of the table, below the calendar image, you can see the departure date (first the day, then the month). The fourth column with the other calendar image shows the arrival date. The second column, under the clock image, displays departure time. The fifth column under the other clock - the arrival time. Note that the time is indicated in the 24-hour clock, instead of a.m. / p.m.
! Importantly, keep in mind that the departure and arrival time is always indicated in local time and is duplicated in Moscow time below the table.
