The current trend in passenger traffic is a sharp increase of individual passenger transport, resulting in substantial adverse environmental impacts such as congestion and traffic accidents. These negative impacts can be reduced by using an efficient system of public transport. Research realized at the Department of railway transport at the University of Žilina has showed high proportion of simultaneous connections between transport modes on the relation Žilina – Ružomberok. This state is inefficient and significantly increases the economic costs of public passenger transport.

The result of research is the proposal of optimization for passenger transport lines on the relation Žilina – Ružomberok, including the elimination of simultaneous connections. There are a major financial savings after this elimination that can be used to improve level of public passenger transport and creating integrated transport systems.

Another result of the research is the proposal of flow chart that use the predetermined criteria to assess the relevance of concurrent connections. The flow chart can be suitably adjusted according to various specified criteria and also expanded to more types of transport systems.
