The paper presents the perspectives of suburban traction units with tilting system particularly in regional transport to decrease the travel times and increase the competitiveness of railway transport. It aims to outline the importance of its use in this mode of transport, especially in the case when the condition of infrastructure is unable to provide higher efficiency possibilities for railway enterprises and investments for tracks optimization are not available or insufficient, i.e. enterprises cannot be more efficient in utilization of classic traction units of conventional design. The paper is focused especially on using traction units with tilting system within a selected regional transport section when analyzing the operational and technical characteristics and comparison of time savings after these units deployment.
