Bashkortostan President became the passenger of high-speed electric train «Ufa – Abdulino»


The high-speed electric train «Ufa – Abdulino» made its first trip on Saturday July 7. The President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitove and other officials took part in its solemn putting into operation.

Before the solemn ceremony the chief of Kuibyshevskaya Railway Shevket Shajdullin answered the questions of the President RB.

Making his opening speech before people gathered at the Ufa station, Rustem Khamitov said that we need modern, good, beautiful railway station. Therefore the reconstruction should be finished faster.

In the meantime boarding on the electric train «Ufa–Abdulino» was announced. Rustem Khamitov walked all over the train set. By his way he examined carriages, talked to passengers, asked about the level of comfort and service quality. Also the head of the republic visited a driver's cabin where he familiarised with transport technical characteristics. Such electric trains are manufactured by Demihovsky wagon works.

We should mark that the electric train of the ED4M series has high level of comfort: there are soft armchairs, air-conditioning system, plasma panels for watching films and video-clips, a dry closet in every carriage. TVs are not everywhere yet, but the Internet by Wi-Fi technology is already connected.

The main advantage of this train except comfortable conditions is speed. Now it takes four hours 10 minutes to get from Ufa to Abdulino station, not six hours as it was before. The buffet will work, sale of foodstuff and printed matters is organised.

Annually more than one million passengers travel in this direction. It is the second direction in the region on volume of passenger traffic.
