Pupils benefit from monthly season-tickets to all trains. The discounts are valid for IInd Class trips, they are issued for distances of up to 300 km and the number of trips included is unlimited.

For example, a pupil pays only 75,60 lei for a Regio monthly season-ticket, IInd class on Bucharest North - Ploiesti South route, instead of 302,4 lei as it would cost the full price trip for 21 working days or 151,20 lei for a monthly season-ticket at a standard rate for Regio train.
