Starting June 14, they will drive on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays on both lines. RegioJet informed on May 14 that this is reaction to growing interest of passengers on the most-used routes before and after weekends when the demand in travelling is biggest.

“ The daily couple of trains EuroCity RegioJet from Prague to Košice and back has become the absolutely most-used train connection on the route Prague – Ostrava region – Košice,” Radim Jančura, owner of Student Agency, which runs the Regio Jet brand, said for the SITA newswire. “We also want to offer a totally new concept of night travel by railway.”

The night train from Košice to Bratislava will depart at 23:23 and arrive at 4:21; in the reverse direction it will start at 23:28 and arrive at 4:45. From Košice to Prague, it will leave at 21:23 and come at 6:18; and depart in the opposite direction at 21:56 arriving to Košice at 7:00.
