Zagreb Commuter Rail is the suburban/commuter railway network that provides mass-transit service in the city of Zagreb, Croatia and its suburbs. This suburban rail system is operated by Croatian Railways (Croatian: Hrvatske željeznice, HŽ), and has been in development since 1992.
With 21 old trains and 11 new the Suburban Railway mainly covers the eastern and western parts of Zagreb. The railway stations have been renovated and the train services have been made more regular in Zagreb. These measures have contributed to the betterment of the suburban railway service.
During rush hours train frequency is 10 min. Since 2010 route was extended for 3 more stations Sutla, Laduć and Harmica.
In planning are more stations between Zagreb Central station and Dugo Selo.
A new link to the nearby town of Samobor has been announced. This link will be standard-gauge and tie in with normal Croatian Railways operations (the previous narrow-gauge line to Samobor was closed in 1979).
