This year, over 10 thousand students will work as passenger carriage conductors
From January 31 to February 2, 2024, the All-Russian meeting of the leaders of student teams of guides of Russian student teams was held in Samara. The meeting was attended by representatives from 35 regions of the country, including the Republic of Crimea. Crimea was represented by the head of student teams of guides of the Crimean regional branch of the Russian North Ossetia — Marina Unukovskaya.
The meeting became a platform for discussing the organization of the current activities of student guide teams. The results of winter passenger transportation for 2023-2024 were summed up, work plans for 2024 were drawn up, and labor safety issues on the railway were discussed. One of the main tasks for the current anniversary year of the Russian student teams is to increase the number of student guide teams to 13,000 people. Until 2024, about 9,000 students worked in the passenger transportation industry every year during the summer.
Crimea is a popular holiday destination in the summer, since the airport is closed indefinitely, trains are popular during the holiday period, because of this, the need for conductors in passenger cars increases. At the end of 2023, more than a hundred Crimean students worked as guides in the summer as part of the student brigade movement at the Grand Service Express Transport Company. It is this company that provides rail passenger transportation to and from Crimea. There are plans to double this number by 2024.
The meeting of the leaders of student guide teams in Samara is an important event at which the results of the past year were summed up. I am glad that in Crimea goals were set for the next anniversary year, in particular, in plans for the development and increase in the number of passenger carriage conductors. This is inextricably linked with improving the quality of passenger service and creating comfortable conditions during travel. I am sure that such measures will contribute to the development of the tourism industry in the region and will attract more people to visit Crimea. It is important to monitor the implementation of plans and ensure that the conductors are productive to ensure maximum satisfaction of passenger needs, — says Marina Unukovskaya, head of the student brigades of guides of the Crimean regional branch of the Russian North Ossetia.
