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 accordingly.
PKP PLK has already updated the network statement. This is an amendment to the network statement no. 1 dated 11 December 2023. PKP PLK has also published the amended document on their website.
The average unit rate of the basic charge depending on the weight of the train and the category of the railway line is PLN 8.01/train-km (in passenger transport PLN 6.31/train-km, in freight transport PLN 12.77/train-km). The average unit shunting fee for vehicles using traction energy is PLN 3.66/train-km and for vehicles using other type of traction - PLN 3.37/train-km. The infrastructure manager decided not to change mark-ups for this timetable.
