The direct beneficiary is the Warsaw Commuter Rail Ltd. as the company receiving six new modern traction units and a state of the art Passenger Information and Monitoring System. Indirect beneficiaries are i) passengers benefitting from better connections, shorter travel times, higher comfort, better information and improved safety; ii) elderly and differently abled people benefitting from easy access to the new traction units; and iii) inhabitants of the south-western part of the Warsaw metropolitan area due to improved public transport services.
The project's overall objective is to increase the operational efficiency, reliability, safety, environmental sustainability and comfort of public passenger railway transport along the Grodzisk - Warsaw commuter line. This will be achieved by purchasing modern rolling stock and the introduction of a passenger information and monitoring system. The project contributes to the implementation of the Polish government's public transportation policy (particularly with regard to increasing the share of public transport, connecting sub-regional centers and establishing an effective and safe public transport system).
The goal of the project is to improve health and living conditions for the whole population in the covered region and to improve environmental conditions, particularly with regard to air quality, in the covered region.
