RegioJet to limit its summer trains to Croatia to three times a week
The company expects the timetable adjustment will increase service stability. Trains will have more time to turn around.
RegioJet confirmed its plans to resume services to Croatia this summer, but with fewer connections than last season’s daily service. Trains will run three times a week from June 16 to September 30.
In addition, the Split connection has been discontinued and trains will only run to Rijeka. Connecting buses will depart from Ogulin and Rijeka to destinations along the Adriatic coast. Ticket sales will begin in the coming weeks, RegioJet said.
The 15-car train will depart from Prague on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, and from Rijeka on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Passengers can take connecting buses to Split.
From June 16 to 30, trains will run via Havlíčkův Brod and Žďár nad Sázavou, and from July via Pardubice and Česká Třebová. The trains will also stop in Celje, Slovenia. With Croatia now in the Schengen zone, border controls are a thing of the past.
Trains will depart from Prague around 5 p.m., from Brno before 8 p.m. and from Bratislava just before 9:30 p.m. Arrival in Croatia is scheduled for the following morning. Return trains to the Czech Republic will leave Rijeka shortly before 3 p.m. and arrive in Brno, Prague and other Czech cities the following morning. The capacity of the trains will be approximately 550 passengers.
