The end of 2014 brought big changes for the Slovak rail passenger transport market. On November 17th, the state began to cover the full cost of tickets for selected passenger groups, which caused a significant increase in passenger numbers from these groups. It is a European rarity. This social initiative made many people happy, but also brought a lot of displeasure. The aim of this paper is to analyse, on the basis of primary research, impacts of zero- fare transport services on the segment of students. The paper also provides an overview of zero-fare transport conditions and basic characteristic of Železničná spoločnosť Slovensko.
