About the company
As if at the luxury hotel suite
JSC TC "Grand Service Express" was found in 2002 and became the first Russian transportation company to have obtained license of the Ministry of Railways of Russia # 0001-PP for passenger transportation on the railway transport. The emergence of private companies in passenger transportation was enabled by the structural reform of the railway transport approved by the Government Decree #334 of May 13th, 2001. The reform was aimed at increasing the scope and improving the quality of service provided by the railway transport, at increasing its efficiency and investment attractiveness. The company has been specializing in charter transportation of VIP passengers from the moment of its foundation. It took JSC TC "Grand Service Express" tree years to gain substantial experience in organizing railroad trips on the territory of Russia, CIS and Baltic states with "Grand de Luxe" cars. Clients were provided with opportunity to organize individual voyages and a superior level of service. The service was highly demanded by passengers. Thus the project of a scheduled train on the most popular Russian route Moscow - Saint Petersburg - Moscow became the next step in the company's development. New high comfort cars were added to the "Red Arrow" train as the first stage of the project's implementation. On the next stage the fully functional regular private train was made up. The train was named "Grand Express" and departed for its first scheduled daily voyage on June 17th, 2005.
Not only train stewards, but also technical staff must have special expertise in order to operate the complicated technological complex of luxury cars. Thus all technical staff of the "Grand Service Express" undergoes special compulsory training at the company where the cars are manufactured.
We are always glad to see You among our passengers.
Have a good trip!
