    In our modern world mobility is a matter of course. Mobility links town and country. It brings people together, transports goods from A to B. Mobility is the basis for progress and development of a country. But mobility needs a functioning infrastructure. Only infrastructure makes mobility possible. It is our job to create this possibility. And we do it every day: 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

    We ensure mobility,
    punctually and reliably.
    170 million passengers per year,
    6,400 trains daily.

    Switches, signals, information systems and specialists with professional training - we ensure that people reach their destination safely. Thanks to modern operations management and leading technology, we are among the leaders in Europe when it comes to infrastructure and punctuality.

    New stations as hubs of urban life - lines, tunnels and bridges connect countries and regions. Every euro that we invest in railway expansion brings twice as much added value for the domestic economy. By investing in infrastructure, we create value for the entire country.

    We build for generations.
    Planning for tomorrow, today.
