RegioJet inaugurates new international train
Czech open-access railway operator RegioJet has inaugurated the new international train in Central Europe. It connects Prague with Vienna and Budapest. This train is a part of RegioJet’s expansion in the region.
RegioJet performed the first train connections on the Prague – Vienna – Budapest routes on Friday, 31 July. The first train departed from Prague early in the morning. It arrived at the final destination at noon. “This is the end of expensive train travel between Czechia, Hungary and Austria,” said Radim Jančura, owner of RegioJet. The minimal single ticket in the Low-cost class from Prague to Budapest costs 16 euros and from Vienna to Budapest is 9 euros. RegioJet also offers three more classes of service: Standard, Relax and Business. In these cases, the ticket prices vary from 19 to 35 euros for the entire route and from 9 to 29 euros for the Vienna – Budapest section.
The new international train stops at 10 intermediate stations on the way from Prague to Budapest (Déli station). In Czechia, it halts in Pardubice, Brno-Židenice, Brno Main station, Břeclav. Only two stops are available for the passengers in Austria: Vienna Main station and Vienna Meidling. This train stops at four intermediate stops in Hungary: Hegyeshalom, Mosonmagyarovar, Györ, Budapest-Kelenföld. The travel time between the termini takes 6 hours 46 minutes. RegioJet provides the Prague – Budapest train service twice a day in each direction. This connection was organised in a partnership with Westbahn (Austria) and Continental Railway Solution (Hungary).
