The Government of the Republic of Croatia has adopted a Conclusion on the introduction of a pilot project of free public railway transport for children and students of primary and secondary schools in the territory of the Republic of Croatia. The pilot project is being introduced in accordance with the Program of the Government of the Republic of Croatia 2020-2024, and is being implemented from 1 October 2021 to 31 December 2022.

The pilot project includes unlimited daily train journeys from the place of residence to the place of schooling and occasional trips, such as day trips, trips to the doctor, on holidays and other trips in the 2nd class of regular trains.

This project will significantly strengthen the development of integrated passenger transport
The implementation of the pilot project will contribute to increasing the mobility of children and students, stopping emigration to urban areas and supporting demographic revitalization, improving the living standards of citizens, revitalizing passenger train traffic in underdeveloped areas and encouraging the use of rail transport. In addition, the development of integrated passenger transport will be significantly strengthened.

The implementation of this project, along with the investment cycle in the reconstruction of railway infrastructure and the purchase of new trains co-financed by EU funds, will have a positive impact on increasing the use and sustainability of rail transport, thus contributing to reducing environmental impacts.
