Scandria Workshop in Świnoujście: Optimisation and revitalisation of “rail-sea-rail” passenger transport from Berlin to Scandinavia
In the result it became clear that Rostock started to improve for "foot passenger" by setting up a bus shuttle from Rostock main station to the ferry terminal and additional offers around the easyway ticket (http://www.easyway-ticket.com). The relation Sassnitz - Trelleborg is only private operated by a direct night train Berlin - Malmö, however there will be no regional train service to the station of Sassnitz (Mukran) to reach the ferry-connections to the island of Bornholm and the daylight-connections to Trelleborg. Świnoujście could offer an excellent interface for Berlin train passengers going to Ystad and Bornholm, but additional measures are needed like time table coordination in Szczecin, upgrading the railway line Berlin-Szczecin, and better access to tickets from polish ferry-operators. The Polish State Railway Company PKP and the Voivodship Western Pomerania will continue to cooperate with Berlin to realize further improvements.
