The Czech private transport company, RegioJet, has arranged for a train connection two times per day between Bratislava, the Czech city of Brno, and Prague.

RegioJet received a letter on November 30 from the Czech administrator of railway infrastructure – The Administration of Railway Transport Way – which confirmed the timetable on this route, the spokesman Aleš Ondrůj informed the TASR newswire.

The RegioJet trains will launch operations on this route when the regular update of timetables becomes effective, i.e. from December 11 onwards. Trains will leave Bratislava early in the morning (departure 5:45 am, arrival 9:42 am) and in the afternoon (departure 3:10 pm, arrival 7:42 pm); from Prague later in the morning (departure 7:15 am, arrival 11:12 am) and also mid-afternoon (departure 3:19 pm, arrival 7:12 pm). The journey lasts for about four hours, with stops in Kúty, Břeclav, Česká Třebová and Ústí nad Orlicí.

Apart from this route, RegioJet will also launch a line from Prague through Brno and Břeclav to Hodonín in the District of Morava, and to the town of Staré Město near Uherské Hradiště, traveling once a day.
