Russian Railways: Only 3 hours from Moscow to Kazan by high speed train
High speed trains will take passengers from Moscow to Kazan for approximately 3 hours. It will be possible only if the trains will make no stops on the route. They plan to have four different classes on these trains. Both budget low cost and more expensive options will be available in each train set. Room in a budget class will be optimized due to using special chairs and cheaper material. The exact price for travelling in low cost carriages is not determined yet though it will probably be at the level of third class ticket price. For example an average price of third class ticket from Moscow to Kazan last year was 1375 rubles which is about USD 40.
