This report assesses Russia's transportation sector and offers courses of action to arrest its decline and to manage its transition to a system more suited to a market-based economy. The study covers railways, road transport, urban passenger transport, highways, ports, maritime and river transport, airlines and civil aviation, and transport equipment manufacturing. It reports on the infrastructure assets, the institutional framework, and the operating and financial performance of each mode. The study also analyzes the economic role and fiscal impact of each mode on the national economy and assesses how that role may change in the future. On the basis of this analysis, a strategy for change is developed, along with recommendations for the Government of the Russian Federation to help the transport sector adapt to its new market role.
