“Passengers travelling from Banská Bystrica and Zvolen will have the opportunity to travel directly to the Czech Republic without the need to change trains,” RegioJet head Radim Jančura said, as quoted by SITA, adding they also plan to add a bus service from Rimavská Sobota to the Horehronie region, which will depart from Banská Bystrica.
