Pets can travel unaccompanied by their owners, but you still have to buy a ticket. These passengers can’t be called stowaways.
According to RIA-Novosti, a couple of dogs and a cat became the discoverers of independent train travel in Russia. To do this, you only need a paid ticket indicating the route. The preferred destination without escort was Moscow - St. Petersburg.
But for now, this campaign is in test mode and controlled by train conductors. To send your pet on a trip without a personal presence you need:
- Fill out the application, where to indicate: name of the person meeting, contact details.
- Place the animal in a special cage for transportation.
- Give water, some food.
- As well as filler for the toilet or diaper.
Cell size must also be considered. In total, its parameters should not be more than 180 cm, and weight should not exceed 75 kg.
More than 3 places for cages cannot be registered per sender, and more than 2 animals cannot be transported in one cage.
It is important to consider the psychological state of the pet. Aggressive or sick animals will not be transported.
