The paper deals with a proposal of the connection quality evaluation on a particular transport network within passenger transport. Currently, there is no relevant methodology for a comprehensive evaluation of timetables in general and no selected indicators for evaluating the connection quality on a transport network. The aim of the paper is to outline the way to evaluate the timetable in passenger transport in terms of connectivity and connection. From a passenger's perspective, it is necessary to evaluate the availability of opportunities to travel between selected locations on a railway network. The transport offer from the place A to the place B basically affects the transportation time, the number of transfers and the number of travel opportunities. This represents the starting point for designing a set of criteria in order to evaluate the overall connection quality.
