The possibility to apply the price list in force in the previous timetable results from Article 33(22) of the Railway Transport Act 2003. According to this provision, the infrastructure manager may decide not to develop a draft price list, or part of it. In such case, the price list which was in force during the previous annual train timetable shall be applied. The infrastructure manager is only obliged to inform the President of Office of Rail Transport about their decision and update the network statement regarding the price list.
Moreover, PKP PLK updated Network Statement for timetable 2023/2024 in the part concerning the price list as amendment no. 4 of Network Statement of 7 November 2022. The current content of the Network Statement and information on the amendment has been published on PKP PLK's website https://www.plk-sa.pl/klienci-i-kontrahenci/warunki-udostepniania-infrastruktury-i-regulaminy/regulamin-sieci/regulamin-sieci-2023/2024.
