From December 12, Koleje Mazowieckie introduces a new train timetable. Ticket prices will also change, increasing by five percent.
“Along with the change in the timetable, ticket prices will also change. This is due to, among others, rising inflation – forecasted for the end of this year may amount to as much as 8% – a drastic increase in energy prices, an increase in the minimum wage, and an increase in costs related to replacement of parts, subassemblies, spare parts for the rolling stock. Therefore, Koleje Mazowieckie was forced to make a decision to increase ticket prices by 5%, from December 12, 2021. ” – wrote in the press release of Koleje Mazowieckie.
In the new timetable of the R1 Warszawa – Skierniewice line, some trains will run to / from the Warszawa Główna station. Due to the subsequent stages of modernization works related to the reconstruction of the Warszawa Zachodnia station, corrections to the timetable for this line will appear on December 19, 2021.
On the R2 Warszawa – Łuków line, selected accelerated trains will continue to start and end at the Warszawa Centralna station. Some of them will go directly to Radom Główny and Skarżysko-Kamienna.
However, on the R3 Warszawa – Łowicz Główny line, modernization works will continue at the Łowicz Główny station and on the Sochaczew – Bednary section. Therefore, on the Sochaczew – Łowicz section, replacement bus communication will continue to be launched for selected KM trains. On December 23, a timetable correction will come into force for this line, along with which more KM trains will reach Łowicz Główny.
As the carrier on the R6 / R61 Warszawa – Szulbor Wielkie / Ostrołęka line informed, due to the construction of the tunnel in Zielonka, trains on the Warszawa Rembertów – Zielonka section will be single-track, which will reduce the number of KM trains running. Trains to / from Szulborz Wielki will run directly from Warsaw Wileńska.
Modernization on the Warsaw East – Warsaw Wawer route
On the R7 Warsaw – Dęblin line, the modernization of the Warszawa Wschodnia – Warszawa Wawer section will begin. Along with the next stages of work, there will be restrictions on the running of KM trains.
The new timetable on the R8 Warszawa – Radom Główny – Skarżysko-Kamienna line will include two new pairs of accelerated connections connecting Radom Główny with Warsaw and an additional morning train (after 6 am) from Warsaw to Radom Główny. Moreover, the route of two inter-peak trains to / from Radom Główny will be extended. Currently, they start and end their run in Warka.
