The cost of one-way ticket is 50 rubles (~ 1.7 USD). All hope that officials will introduce discount prices for students, old people and children:

The working time - from 7:00am till 8:00pm (workdays) and from 9:00am till 9:00pm (weekend). However, this schedule can be changed:

There is Bus station "Sennaya" near the Nizhny Novgorod station of cableway. In addition, by 2018 they plan to build Metro station "Sennaya Ploshchad" ("Hay Square") near this place.

With four trains per day in each direction, http://www.aeroexpress.ru/sochi.htm, I don't see the point.

The press release, http://press.rzd.ru/isvp/public/pres..._end=&id=79051, suggests that once Lastochka is introduced in 2014, frequencies will be increased.

Are passengers able to check in luggage at Adler or Sochi instead of lugging it with them to the airport?
