The trains travelling on the route between Nitra and Prague will be quicker and carry more people.

“Regarding the big interest of passengers we will use double, and in some cases even triple train sets,” said László Ivan, head of the route’s operator in Slovakia, the Arriva company, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

The very first connection between these two cities was launched last year.
