Private carrier RegioJet may soon join the integrated transport system in Bratislava Region.

The talks started in November 2016, and during the first few months of this year both parties assessed the impacts on the carrier and on the ordering parties. Most recently, the deputies of Bratislava Region approved the possibility of the carrier’s entry into the system, the TASR newswire reported.

The next meeting is scheduled for mid-July, with the representatives of the system's coordinator awaiting the official statement to RegioJet’s request to join the integrated transport system, according to Zuzana Horčíková, head of Bratislavská Integrovaná Doprava (BID) company.

It will be then necessary to agree on price lists and timetables, and RegioJet will need to change its tariff and information systems, which is expected to take at least three months.

“We believe that the processes will move ahead,” Horčíková said, as quoted by TASR.
