Online availability for Uzbek Afrosyob train

Postby Globusa » Thu Jul 05, 2018 9:30 pm

Hello,

a friend of mine in Uzbekistan will be buying for me train tickets online for August and I did a dummy search for one of the trains that I would like to take. Strangely, both now in July, and in the farthest days available for online purchase in mid-August (which have been online for only a few days now) on some days the daily Afrosyob train from Samarkand to Bukhara at 9:43 in the morning is missing. On other days it is available for purchase. Does this mean that the train is already sold out for those days when I do not see it in the online ticket purchase system? I know it is not an enormous train and that it is definitely the best option for city-to-city travel, but still I cannot imagine it sold out that quickly.

Thank you in advance

Doesn't mean it is sold out necessarily. It could be, but it's definitely possible that they put it on sold out online, so you would have to buy it at the kassa, where the sellers can take a percentage.

I had some indirect confirmations that the Afrosyob train is put for online sale only 2 weeks before the respective data. E.g. tickets for August 15-31 can be purchased only after August 1-2.
Local and international trains on the other hand are sold much more in advance.
