Cross-border test sercive between Görlitz and Zgorzelec
Ideas and concepts for the reorganization of the existing line “P” and for additional cross-border bus services in the city center of Görlitz and Zgorzelec as well as for the connection of the Polish people with the German recreation area “Berzdorfer See” were worked out in spring 2019. For example, a rerouting of the line “P” in Zgorzelec from the central bus station to the railway station instead of the end point "Real" has been carried out. As a result, a better connection of Görlitz city center to trains to Poland was achieved.
On 1 July 2019, a test service between the two city centers of Görlitz and Zgorzelec, and with the use of interchanges, a connection to the recreation area Berzdorfer See based on an optimization of existing timetables and application of the German day passes also for the polish side.
This line has a length of 4.8 km and connects the central station as well as the inner city of Görlitz with the bus station of Zgorzelec and with some hypermarkets. The test run was operated by the polish regional bus company FHU Bielawa and took place during the summer period in the months of July and August 2019.
The next processing steps within the framework of the TRANS-BORDERS project will be:
- Creation of a timetable and circulation concept for the line "P" with the route Görlitz Central Station – Görlitz Demianiplatz – Zgorzelec bus station – Zgorzelec station
- Consideration of important train connections with priority at the Zgorzelec railway station
- Definition of further important connections at the other interfaces (Görlitz Central Station, Görlitz Demianiplatz, Görlitz bus station)
- If possible align the line "P" to these connection relationships
