RegioJet to Launch Train from Ukraine to Czechia in 2024

The Czech carrier RegioJet is set to launch a night train service from Prague to Chop, traversing the border point of Čierna nad Tisou in Slovakia, commencing in early January 2024.

The newly proposed route will make use of a 37-kilometer Eurocol line, extending from the border to Chop and further to Mukachevo, according to reports from CTS.

Departing from Prague’s main railway station at 21:38, the trains are scheduled to reach Chop at 10:35, with return journeys originating from Chop at 17:30 and concluding in Prague at 05:07. Initially, the service will be facilitated by a three-car train, accommodating up to 140 passengers.

Due to the absence of a license for operation in Ukraine, RegioJet will collaborate with “Ukrzaliznytsia” (Ukrainian Railways) to deliver this new service. RegioJet will remit a fee for track access managed by the Infrastructure Management Department of Ukrzaliznytsia. The schedule for 2024, effective from December 10, outlines plans to establish connections with Ukrzaliznytsia trains in Chop.

Moreover, the Czech carrier envisions linking Ukraine with other Central European capitals via rail, connecting Vienna to Chop through Budapest and the border point of Zahony in Hungary. Collaborating with Ukrzaliznytsia, connections to Berlin are also slated, with routes passing through the border point in Przemyśl, Poland.

It’s noteworthy that RegioJet had previously disclosed plans for new trains running from Przemyśl to Hanover.
