A water bus will join Danube regions

IN THE NEAR future a new form of river transport called the Dunajbus will offer regular boat service on the Danube from Slovakia’s town of Šamorín to Hungary’s Rajka, on to Bratislava and Devín in Slovakia and ending in the Austrian town of Hainburg. The goal is to intensify cross-border contact and travel between people living along the Danube. The project has been green lighted by the EU operational programme Hungary-Slovakia, 2007-2013, and should boost cross-border tourism and commuting. The Trnava Region parliament discussed the project in mid October as it would be responsible for 5 percent of the total project costs of €122,850. Other partners are Bratislava Region, Hungary’s Győr-Moson-Sopron County, and regions in eastern Austrian, the TASR newswire wrote.
