Belarusian Railways to launch nonsmoking carriages on Mogilev-Minsk passenger trains

Belarusian Railways launch nonsmoking carriages on passenger train. The information is provided by the Belarusian Railways’ press service.
According to the specialists, nonsmoking trains are supposed to make railway trips more comfortable. Today the experiment starts with the train Mogilev-Minsk (№143/144).

Travel documents for these trains are sold differentially as either for smokers or non-smokers. The criterion is similar to the one that was introduced for some trains which got female and male compartments.

Today the passengers are allowed to smoke at appropriate places only – train carriages platforms. The experiment on Mogilev-Minsk trains supposes that the passengers of nonsmoking carriages are not allowed to smoke even on the train carriages platforms. Nonsmoking carriages will get information lists banning passengers to smoke. Train radio broadcasting will also be aimed at providing the passengers with corresponding information. Ticket offices will inform passengers on the situation, too.

The Belarusian Railways’ press service says that introduction of nonsmoking carriages corresponds to the world’s tendency to fight smoking habits.
