RegioJet, the private carrier that operates railway and bus transport, will boost its seasonal bus line between Bratislava and Croatia. It will operate twice a week, the TASR newswire wrote on May 1.

Buses will be dispatched from Bratislava on Fridays and Tuesdays and will return on Saturdays and Wednesdays.

RegioJet noticed an increased interest of passengers in these lines, and many buses are already booked.

“We expect to drive at least 50 percent more passengers this year,” economic manager of the bus company, Marcela Hamříková, told TASR.

Thus, the carrier, apart from increasing the number of buses, will also double their capacity. This means that instead of a single bus, there will be two buses operating one connection.

The tickets for additional buses went on sale starting on May 2. The seasonal lines will start operating on May 25 through September 6. Buses from Bratislava to Split will leave Fridays and Tuesdays at 21:00, arriving the next morning at 9:30. They will return from Split on Saturday and Wednesday evenings, at 20:30, while passing through other sea resorts (e.g. Zadar, Biograd, Vodice, Šibenik and Primošten), and return to Bratislava the next morning at 9:00, TASR wrote.
