Private carrier RegioJet is entering Ukraine with the new Košice – Michalovce – Uzhgorod – Mukachevo international bus line. It started operating on Sunday, April 15.

The connection to the Zakarpattia Oblast will run once a day and serve as a connection to the company’s trains between Prague and Košice. If the train is late, the bus will wait for the passengers, the SITA newswire wrote on April 13. The buses leave Košice bus station each evening at 23:00 and arrive to Mukachevo at 4:10 (local time). In the opposite direction, the buses will leave Mukachevo at 15:15 and arrive to Košice at 18:45.

RegioJet expands

RegioJet will operate bus routes with partner carriers Sanytour and TOV Zakarpateuroliniji, whose buses will be labelled with the RegioJet logo. The company expects the new bus route to be used not only by tourists but also working people who will travel by bus or train to Slovakia and the Czech Republic, or switch for other buses of the carrier and travel further to European cities, owner of RegioJet Radim Jančura noted.

The company also plans to increase its services in Germany and Austria.
