It turned out that the bridge often drive inhabitants of the Crimean Peninsula, Krasnodar territory, Moscow and St. Petersburg. Also frequent guests “of the Soviet resorts” who prefer to travel on personal cars, are inhabitants of Stavropol territory, the Rostov, Volgograd, Voronezh, Samara, Kaluga, Moscow and Leningrad regions.
The experts also held a small mathematical calculation, by setting the benefits of this kind of travel. It turned out that the owners and carriers who took advantage of the Crimean bridge instead of the ferry, from may 16, 2018 saved almost 26 billion rubles.
During one trip on the ferry (from the port “Crimea” to the port Kavkaz or in the opposite direction) you have to pay from 1.5 to 19.5 thousand rubles, depending on the type and dimensions of the car. Moving well under their own steam across the bridge, the drivers spent only on gasoline.
