We are responsible for the timetable construction for passenger, freight and special-purpose trains, which is prepared at the request and in line with the guidelines provided by our customers - railway undertakings.
In 2015 1 431 391 passenger trains and 618 180 freight trains travelled their routes on the Polish railway tracks.
To correlate such a high number of connections we use an electronic system for the timetable construction - SKRJ, which has been the only tool in the process of the timetable planning since 2013.
Trying to respond to Passengers' needs we also provide our ready-made product in the form of the Passenger Portal.
Thanks to the connection search engine, network and poster timetables published on the Internet website we make it possible to obtain access to the data that are always up-to-date.
Safety is our priority!
We have been carrying out a social campaign entitled Bezpieczny przejazd [Safe rail-road level crossing], since 2005, which has been raising and improving awareness of risks resulting from one's failure to preserve special precautions on railway grade crossings and railway areas. We encourage you to get acquainted with our campaign and the way we work at the campaign website:
At the same time we must live up to our own standards. Replacement and modernisation of traffic control equipment, installation of new points, purchase of simulators or offering training for rail traffic controllers and people responsible for safety is only a part of our safety improvement program on a broad basis.
We know that human life depends on our engagement and professionalism, therefore we perform our professional duties in accordance with applicable procedures and utmost care.
