Private company RegioJet will start selling train tickets for the route Bratislava-Komárno from February 20. The initial trips will be part of a test schedule, so various reductions will be offered, the Sme daily reported.

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.
