November 2018 : further increases in passenger transport


Over 27 m passengers travelled by train in November 2018. It is more than 2.5 m more than last year. In the second half of the year, the results were better than in 2017 each month. Therefore, it can be estimated that the number of passengers will exceed 300 million this year.

From the beginning of the year to the end of November, a total of 284.6 million passengers traveled by train. Transport performance in this period amounted to 19.4 bn pass-km, and operational performance over 151.7 m train-km. These values ​​are respectively by 1.9%, 3.5% and nearly 2.1% higher than in the same period of 2017. Compared to November 2017, the number of passengers was over 2.1 m higher, transport performance by 0.13 billion pas-km, and operational by 0.6 m train-km.
In 2018, only in October more passengers traveled by rail than in November. This is a unique result, because in recent years November was not the month when travelers were so eager to use the railway services so frequently. It is worth mentioning that the first half of 2018 was similar to the results from 2017. A significant increase is observed in the second half of the year. For the last five months, the average increase was over 6.5% year-on-year.
The average distance traveled by 1 passenger in November was 62 km which is similar to the previous year.
