Ride in Volgograd on a high-speed tram. I am telling you what a miracle it is

When a high-speed tram appeared in Volgograd in 1984, many city residents were simply at a loss … Everyone was waiting for the metro, of course, but got something in between # metro and tram.

Apparently even then the city was not held in high esteem, despite the fact that it was considered a large industrial center with a million population.

Recently, all the tram and trolleybus facilities of the city, or as it is also called MUP Metroelektrotrans, as well as the entire city as a whole , are going through hard times.

Over a hundred conductors and drivers were dismissed at the enterprise, and they immediately issued new job advertisements.

If necessary, you can use the phone number. No need to thank!

But you cant get a job there without special certificates, and there are not so many people who want to have them. and a lot.

Why, now there is one conductor for two high-speed tram cars instead of two, who simply does not have time to sell tickets to everyone.

So recently I rode the tram for free, because I entered the second car, and the conductor was in the first, but in our car for the entire journey, he never appeared. Such is the attraction of unprecedented generosity.

Apparently 25 rubles (fare) for the city is no longer money.
