Kurzfassung englisch:
Timetables are key control elements for railways. They determine all costs for operation
but also have a great effect on a railway company´s revenue, because the utilization of trains
depends largely on travel times and available connections. Within this paper, a fully functioning
system of so called integrated timetables within Serbia`s present inter-city railway network is
developed. The big difference to common timetables is, that all lines are served several times daily
with a fixed interval of two hours and all trains serving one junction have the ability to be
connected to all other directions there within short transfer time. So it is possible to reduce total
travel time between several Serbian towns up to three hours without major investment for
improving the tracks` maximum speed. The two-hour-interval has been decided to perform the
balancing act between working out ways to increase the attractivity of railway networks while
making best use of the modest rolling stock and infrastructure which are now available. Going
along with renovation of the tracks it might even be possible to shorten the intervals to one hour, to
increase the trains` speed and to integrate local traffic within this system in the future.
