Overview

Transport Company «Grand Service Express» was founded in 2002 and became the first transport company in Russia which has received the license of Ministry of Means of Communication of the Russian Federation under No. 0001-ПП for passenger operations by railway. Presence of private (individual) companies in sphere of passenger transportation became possible as a result of the structural reform of railway transportation system approved by governmental order No. 334 as of May 13th, 2001. The main purpose of such reform was increase in volume and quality of of railway transportation services, improvement of efficiency and investment appeal. The Company has specialized on VIP charter operations since our establishment. For three years Transport Company «Grand Service Express» has gained wide experience of the organization of railway transportation in Grand de Luxe cars in Russia, Baltic states and CIS. Our clients have had the opportunity of individual travelling and service of the highest level. This service appeared to be of great demand among our passengers and our next step for development of the company was the project of scheduled train at the most popular route in Russia: Moscow - St.-Petersburg - Moscow. At the first stage of this project new comfortable cars joined the structure of «Red Arrow» trains; at the next stage the private (individual) scheduled train was launched. The train was named «GRAND EXPRESS». It’s very important to mention that maintenance of such technologically complicated complexes – luxury cars - require special competence of porters and engineering personnel. For this reason Grand Service Express workers, dealing with technological systems of our cars, go through special training at the production plant. Today, the train "Grand Express" - is 10 classes wide train, from Economy to Grand Imperial. "Grand Express" - a combination of price competitiveness, modern technology and luxury, De Luxe overnight train affordable for each passenger! We are always glad to see you on our train!
