Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) – French group wants to transport passengers by railways. Its Polish subsidiary Connex Koleje Polskie is waiting for registration.

Veolia Transport Polska (VTP), the subsidiary of Veolia Transport Central Europe, part of French group Veolia Environnement, has so far offered only bus transport services in Poland. Its subsidiary Connex Koleje Polskie, however, is being registered and is collecting documents to receive license. If its plans go well, the Polish railway market may change dramatically. So far none of the licensed companies, including PTK Rybnik, CTL Regio, or CTL Express Koleje Nadwislanskie, had a chance to compete with PKP Przewozy Regionalne and PKP Intercity, state-owned railway giants. Veolia Transport is one of the world’s biggest private transport companies. It operates in Germany, Switzerland, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia and Slovenia. It is the second largest railway operator in Germany, after Deutsche Bahn, and in Sweden.

In Poland, Veolia Transport bought 14 privatized passenger transport companies within eight years of operations. The company had PLN 155m (EUR 39.4m) of sales last year. In 2001, it was PLN 58m.

(PLN 1 = EUR 0.254)
