MIRT

Manual for International Rail Tickets (MIRT)

The MIRT provides CIT members with an introduction and the necessary standards to issuing international tickets. It is primarily addressed to the staff of railway undertakings who have to deal with the law of carriage, with the issuing of international tickets, with checking those tickets and with customer service.

The MIRT is now available in the three CIT languages English, French and German on the CIT website under the heading “ Passenger traffic > CIT documentation ” (member-restricted area).

Applicable with effect from 13 December 2015
