“The trains will leave at hourly and half-hourly intervals,” said Árpád Érsek, a deputy minister at the Transport Ministry, as quoted by TASR.

Passengers will travel between the two cities in modern, air-conditioned trains made by Bombardier, a Canadian manufacturer.

The company hopes to transport 1.9 million passengers on this route each year, the SITA newswire reported.
