RegioJet, which also operates transport services under the Student Agency brand, promised that railway tickets to southern Slovakia will be cheaper, especially for passengers travelling more than 60 kilometres. The company also promised to increase the number of trains travelling between Bratislava and Komárno.

Operation of the trains will be party financed by the state, which will pay a certain amount to RegioJet for every kilometre travelled. The Transport Ministry wants to use the same approach to select carriers on other routes.
