Ukrzaliznytsia made a statement about why separate compartments for men and women
In 2010, such an experiment was carried out by Lviv Railway, which offers separate compartments for men and women on 12 trains. There was also a “divided” wagon on the train.
Today, Ukrzaliznytsia (Ukrainian Railways) thinks that it is not appropriate to provide such a departure for several reasons.
It is not always possible to determine the gender of a person when purchasing tickets online. There are names and surnames that are difficult to identify by gender: there may be aliens or double names and so on.
Also, such an innovation can be perceived as discrimination against passengers.
Ukrzaliznytsya said in his statement on his Facebook page “From a legal point of view, we cannot refuse a passenger to buy a ticket. For example, Ukrzaliznytsia cannot refuse such a passenger if a male passenger has to go and empty seats are located only in the "women" compartment. " said. (Ukrhab is)
