Polish railway market in 2019
The President of the Office of Rail Transport (Pol. Urząd Transportu Kolejowego, UTK) has published the "Report on the state of the Polish railway transport market in 2019". The report shows that last year was the year of passenger transport - their number rose by 8%. It was also a good year for intermodal transfer with a more than 10% rise in transported mass.
June 2020 transfer results
Railway carriers transported 14.5 million passengers in June. That's almost 47% less than in June of 2019. However the decline in the number of passengers, caused by the COVID-19 epidemic, is lower than in April and May, when it reached the level of 77% and 66% respectively. Railway freight transport amounted to 17.5 million tonnes of goods - 1.1 million tonnes less than in June of 2019. That means the lowest decrease when comparing year to year results.
