European Train Control System defines standards for future train control systems, allowing direct services between different member states in Europe. But due to the high costs of their implementation these approaches in the first step focus on long distance services and bilateral solutions are needed for regional railway services which for financial reasons cannot fulfill these requirements on a short and mid-term basis. This study focuses on such bilateral solutions especially for the German-Polish border. Nevertheless similar problems occur between other member states as well and therefore a transfer of experiences can be useful for other regions as well.
