Workshop Paper / Transport
Integrating the Railway with the Public Transport System of Warsaw
The European Transport Regulation Spotlight is a series of Workshop Papers which highlights exemplary cases from the European Transport Regulation Forums. This case, titled "Urban Mobility Systems – Integrating the Railway with the Public Transport System of Warsaw", was written down by Maciej Florczak (Zarząd Transportu Miejskiego).
The transition process in Poland in the 1990s brought a number of changes, also affecting the transport system in Warsaw. The increased road traffic forced transport planners to modernise and improve the public transport system. The lack of common legislation and strategies for Polish metropolitan areas is an obstacle for the creation of a well-functioning public transport system, especially when the catchment area covers a number of independent cities and municipalities, and different owners of public transport providers. The Warsaw Transport Authority (ZTM) works towards integrating all public transport modes into one single system. This case study describes the development and steps taken towards an integrated system.
