In October of the current year, the private Polish railway company SKPL plans to launch a new railway route from Rava-Ruska to Warsaw.
This announcement was made by the Chairman of the Board of the Joint-Stock Company “Ukrzaliznytsia” (UZ), Yevhen Lyashchenko, in a joint interview with “Interfax-Ukraine.”
This project is of significant importance as Ukrzaliznytsia is collaborating with a European company in the passenger transportation sector for the first time.
As part of the collaboration with SKPL, UZ will pay for passenger transportation services using the rolling stock of the Polish company. At the same time, the Ukrainian railway company will generate revenue from ticket sales, as explained by Lyashchenko.
In addition to the Polish company SKPL, Ukrzaliznytsia also plans to cooperate with the Czech carrier company RegioJet. With this company, UZ plans to launch two projects: passenger routes from Chop to Prague and from Przemysl to Berlin and Hanover.
