Since the railway is located in a flat area of the country, it could be potentially visited by all people, even with reduced mobility. There is no steep incline and it should be accessible by anyone.

At the moment, passenger transportation is cancelled on the railway but very rarely it is used to access the quarry in Žirany. No greenway conversion action plan is in place.
