Summary/Abstract: The article considers the main directions of the implementation of the current transportation and transit projects on thebasis of the institution of public-private partnership in Russia. This work is a continuation of the study of the theory and practiceof the application of public-private partnership in the investment projects aimed at the development and realization of thetransportation and transit potential of the country. On the methodological basis of evolutionary and institutional economics,historical approach, system-oriented analysis and the theory of firms, the main current projects for the development of Russiantransportation and transit system using public-private partnership are considered. They are the construction of a high-speedline of Moscow — Kazan with subsequent extension to the Chinese border; functioning of the transport and logistics in theChelyabinsk region; infrastructure of transit cargo by Northern Sea Route; participation of foreign investors in the developmentof Russian seaports and sea gates. It is shown that the competitive advantage of transit traffic by a particular route requiresmore traversing speed of cargo with a minimum of stops, handling and overloads in the way. Revenue from transportation andtransit potential implementation can be comparable to the size of the resource rent in the case of the development in Russia ofthe production and transit sector of the economy, and not only of a transit one . In this regard, the emphasis is placed on thedetermination of the possibility and necessity of organizational changes associated with the development of a large public-privatetransportation company, able to compete with global sea container services of the route of Asia — Europe. The main directionsand activities under the proposed national project «Development of transit economy in Russia: Uniting Eurasia» and its subprogram«Creation of innovative rolling stock for container and multimodal transport» are developed. The results of the studycan be used in the preparation of state programs and projects, containing a system of measures to develop and implement thetransportation and transit potential of Russia on the basis of institutional and organizational changes.
