O článku:
Multimodal passenger transport is an essential component of long-distance travel by public transport. It is not possible to establish direct rail or bus connections between all regions of a given country and it is even more difficult to ensure the communication between regions of various countries. However, in order to ensure relatively efficient accessibility and at the same time to maintain profitable connections, possibilities of convenient changes of ways of transport are possible at multimodal interchange nodes, which is the most important element of the infrastructure of multimodal passenger transport. Examples of potential applications of this type of mobility include tourist trips from Slovakia to Baltic Sea resorts in Poland. Over a dozen Polish seaside resorts located on the Baltic coast can become travel destinations for Slovak tourists. The article discusses the capabilities of public transport between Slovakia and the Polish Baltic coast. It also analyses its real-life effectiveness and identifies problems requiring support and implementation of an integrated multimodal passenger transport. This discussion is based on the analysis of timetables, including the basic timetable assumptions. The results of the analysis will include maps showing the differentiation of accessibility of the Polish Baltic coast and an exemplary model improving the performance of public transport between Slovakia and the destinations located on the Polish coast.
