It also plays a key role in the development of transportation services being a determinant of performance from the transportation sector. The purpose of the article is to present the impact of road infrastructure development and the economic situation on the performance of selected transportation companies. A total of more than 100 entrepreneurs operating in the transport services sector, who had been in the market for a period from one year to more than 21 years, participated in the study. A diagnostic survey was conducted and the results were developed through the use of statistical methods, including selected non-parametric tests (Mann–Whitney U, Kruskal– –Wallis H) and a correlation study. This allowed verification of the opinions of company representatives as to the quality of road infrastructure and its impact on the development of the industry over the years.
