Accommodation wagons and night trains have a relatively long tradition in Europe and have been a popular and developed segment of transport for decades. However, at the end of the last century, the trend began to change, and long-distance night traffic began to stagnate. The consequence was the significant restriction and cancellation of several di...

Rozšírenie krízy COVID-19 malo vážny vplyv na železničných dopravcov z dôvodu výrazného zníženia dopytu po službách železničnej dopravy. Niektorí dopravcovia čelili značným problémom s likviditou, veľkým stratám a v krajnom prípade riziku úpadku. V tomto období bola koronakrízou postihnutá najmä železničná osobná doprava. V prvej vlne pandémie, keb...

The COVID-19 pandemic crisis has had a major impact on the supply, demand, and economic performance of rail transport. The largest impact was recorded in the second quarter of 2020, from April to June. Passenger transport was more affected than freight transport, with international transport falling by an average of 85% in the second quarter of 202...

The issues that determine the capacity of railway infrastructure are topical in situations that are reaching operating limits. According to the objectives of the European transport policy, it is assumed that up to 30% of road freight over 300 km should shift to other modes such as rail or waterborne transport by 2030. The transport system should be...

The analysis of technological procedures in transport and logistics aimed at innovating established procedures is an ongoing process not only in the present. Constant innovation can significantly reduce the operating costs and dramatically increase transport speeds. Continuous modernization reflecting customer needs keeps the rail sector competitiv...

Trh služieb železničnej dopravy v krajinách EÚ bol dlhodobo neprístupný súkromnému sektoru. Dopravné služby boli poskytované národnými dopravcami, čo viedlo k zamedzeniu podieľania sa na spravodlivej a nediskriminačnej hospodárskej súťaži pri poskytovaní dopravných služieb železničnej dopravy. Hlavným cieľom objednávateľov dopravných služieb vo ver...

Rail transport has a crucial role to play not only in the EU’s strategy for a sustainable transport sector, but also in terms of economic and social cohesion. It contributes significantly to the mix of transport modes in the EU, while providing clean mobility and a high degree of efficiency. Following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the volu...

Since the beginning of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had a major impact on rail transport in the EU. The slowdown in the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has been achieved by reducing the mobility of the population. The reduction in mobility has had an impact on passenger transport performance. The number of national rail passengers fell by as much as...
Conference Paper
The technology of augmented reality is often confused with virtual reality and differs fundamentally. While augmented reality complements the real environment with virtual elements, virtual reality completely replaces this environment. Complicating the currently used technological process due to incorrectly or "violently" augmented reality can resu...
Conference Paper
The compilation of the periodic timetables in rail passenger transport is currently a new evolving trend that increases the efficiency of rail transport. However, for the development of transport science, it is necessary to constantly develop this system. The paper offers one way to contribute in this area and thus raise and improve this system of...

Koľajová doprava v okolí Bratislavského letiska funguje len pre účely nákladnej prepravy primárne v podobe dovozu pohonných látok, čomu je uspôsobená aj daná infraštruktúra. Potenciál Bratislavského letiska M. R. Štefánika v súčasnosti nie je vyčerpaný, avšak možnosti prístupu k tomuto letisku sú značne vymedzené stupňom rozvinutia jednotlivých dru...

The current conditions of the railway infrastructure near the M. R. Štefánik Airport is analysed as unsatisfactory. The current form of the railway infrastructure of the monitored area is not adapted to the creation of a suitable place for boarding and alighting of passengers. The point determined for boarding and alighting of passengers must be at...

... In connection with the declaration of a state of emergency in the Slovak Republic, international train traffic with all neighbouring countries was temporarily stopped, and the operation of IC trains was also stopped. The operation of all customer centres and the reservation workplace for personal equipment or selected points of sale was also suspended, the sale of national reservations was suspended, and the queuing of restaurant, sleeping and couchette wagons as well as car carrier wagon was also limited (Dedík, et al., 2022). ...
... The second wave of the pandemic in the fall of 2020 forced many countries to adopt further restrictive measures in connection with population mobility. The outbreak of the third wave of the pandemic prevented the rapid revival of rail transport, especially in the case of passenger rail transport services (Bulková, et al., 2022) The introduction of individual measures, which gradually led to the restriction of mobility and the meeting of people, significantly contributed to the mentioned trend, as many people considered individual car transport to be not only more comfortable, but also significantly safer than public passenger transport. Although the gradual relaxation of measures has slightly increased its attractiveness, nothing has changed significantly in the mentioned trend (Marra, et al., 2022). ...
... Due these effects, not only human well-being is put at risk, but also the level of food, water and energy security, driving to a potential disruption of the economic structure of cities (Faivre et al., 2017). Holistic, systemic approaches are needed that are not tackling these issues with only one solution, but rather apply a cognitive sustainability approach: utilizing the biological and artificial systems with technological solutions to create a more comprehensive web of tools (Zöldy et al., 2022). Dorst et al. (2019) states that so called nature-based solutions (NBSs) have the potential to incorporate several disciplines and aspects of urban adaptation processes together, enabling a more holistic, systematic approach. ...
... For focused research on the operational reliability of a railway line operated by a periodic timetable, refer to [39]. The authors of [40] offered one way to contribute to this area, and thus raised and improved this method of organising rail transport. The authors proposed a methodology that evaluates the level of stability of periodic train traffic diagrams based on operational and infrastructural factors. ...
