PKP PLK, a few days before the President of the Office of Rail Transport was due to issue a decision on the draft price list for 2021/2022 train timetable, informed that from December 12, 2021 they are going to apply the basic network rate and shunting fee at the level on which they were in 2020/2021 timetable. PKP PLK also withdrew its application of December 18, 2020 for approval of the draft price list in the part on the method of calculation of unit rate of basic and shunting fee for 2021/2022 timetable. The President of the Office of Rail Transport discontinued all administrative proceedings in this case.
Thus, the charges approved by the President of the Office of Rail Transport in the decision of August 22, 2018 are in force on the PKP PLK's network since 2018. PKP PLK also announced its intention to update the Network Statement for 2021/2022 train timetable regarding the price list.
Infrastructure managers are required to submit new draft price lists for approval to the President of the Office of Rail Transport. The President of the Office of Rail Transport verifies the correctness of establishment and collection of infrastructure charges by infrastructure managers. The draft price list submitted for approval by an infrastructure manager is verified on several points: the method of calculation of unit rate of basic and shunting fee and the calculation of applied sub-rates and coefficients. The President of the Office of Rail Transport may approve a draft price list or refuse to approve it.
An infrastructure manager may also, after informing the President of the Office of Rail Transport, decide to use for the next train timetable a part of a price list which they applied during the previous train timetable and update its network statement accordingly.
