It is slated to start operating as of December 11, when the new train schedule is due to become valid, the company informed on November 9. Two pairs of trains should operate the route daily, departing from Bratislava and Prague in the morning and in the afternoon. The first connection from Bratislava and both connections from Prague should take less than four hours, and the second connection from Bratislava four-and-a-half hours.

The first train, leaving Bratislava-Main Station at 5:45 and arriving to Prague at 9:42 shall make stops in Kúty, Břeclav, Brno, Česká Třebová, Ústí nad Orlicí and Pardubice, the SITA newswire wrote. “With launching this train, we considered also the requests of travelling businesspeople who will arrive to Prague before 10:00 – and thus will have enough time to manage everything,” owner of RegioJet, Radim Jančura, said.

The second trains shall leave Bratislava at 15:10 and arrive to Prague at 19:42, stopping in Kúty, Břeclav, Brno and Pardubice. In the opposite direction, the planned departure from Prague is at 7:15 – with arrival at 11:12. The second train shall leave at 15:19 and reach Bratislava at 19:12.

Apart from this route, nine RegioJet buses shall continue to run between Bratislava, Brno and Prague – even 11 times per day total, in both directions. A new stop at Bratislave-Nové Mesto shall also be added.
