The kinetic integral equation for a quasi-one-dimensional organic crystal is solved exactly, and the expression for the electrical conductivity is presented as a transport integral. The latter has two singularities depending on crystal parameters. The possibilities to obtain analytic expressions in some particular cases and the general numerical calculations with pronounced singularities are analysed.
