The Turkmendemiryollary agency (Turkmen Railways) launched an online ticket sales service for passengers. This is the official website of the agency.
Now passengers will be able to purchase tickets for domestic trains without leaving their homes through the official website or the Turkmenistan Railways mobile application for Android platforms and iOS (still in development).
To do this, just select the date of the trip, fill in the required fields and confirm the purchase. Tickets are paid through the national payment system Altyn Asyr.
The entire history of online ticket purchases and travels is stored in the app. If necessary, they can be demonstrated to the conductor.
For the convenience of all residents of Turkmenistan and guests of the country, the developers also plan to translate the application into Russian and English.
Since the beginning of the year, residents of Ashgabat have already had the opportunity to buy tickets at the offices of the postal service company Turkmenpochta. New service will expand the reach of users and definitely facilitate the process of buying tickets.
