Restrictions introduced to prevent the spread of Covid-19 are clearly visible in the transport results on the railway. In April 2020, slightly more than 6 million passengers traveled by train – 77 percent less than a year ago – Poland’s Office of Rail Transport (UTK) stated on May 29. A year ago, in April, 26.5 million travelers used rail services.

According to the UTK, the restrictions introduced have reduced the average traveled distance to 46km. It is 9km lower compared to March 2020 and 19km lower than April 2019.

Furthermore, UTK data shows that rail freight transported over 16.7 million tonnes of cargo in April, less than 13.2 percent less as compared to March 2020 and over 17 percent less compared to April 2019.
