Žeľezničná spoločnosť Slovensko a.s. (ZSSK) is Slovak state-owned passenger trains operated company, based in Bratislava.

In 2002 a company Železničná spoločnosť was established as a successor of personal and cargo transport part of the Železnice Slovenskej republiky. In 2005 this new company was further split into "Železničná spoločnosť Slovensko, a. s." [1] providing Passenger transport services and "Železničná spoločnosť Cargo Slovakia, a. s." (ZSSK CARGO or ZSCS) [2] providing cargo services.

In January 2011, ZSSK lost its monopoly on subsidised passenger transport, as RegioJet was awarded a contract to operate Bratislava - Dunajská Streda - Komárno services.[2]
