RegioJet, leading Central European open-access train operator – has plans for further expansions of its long-distance international trains’ services. As of June 2020, Budapest should become the new destination for RegioJet trains.
Two train couples a day should operate on the line Prague – Brno – Vienna – Budapest as a prolongation of already existing Prague – Vienna train services. Partners for operating the RegioJet trains will be Continental Railway Solutions in Hungary and WESTbahn in Austria. Business and customer service responsibilities will remain RegioJet´s competence for the whole journey from Prague to Vienna and Budapest – with no change of the board or scope of services after crossing the border.
RegioJet trains are NOT available for domestic travels within Hungary, only for international travels from and to Budapest.
On all lines, RegioJet trains offer passengers the best prices in combination with the most extensive scope of board services.
Prices are not any limited “special price offers” (Sparschiene) – just for few exclusive passengers only – booking tickets weeks in advance. They are available to all passengers – even few minutes’ prior the departure of the train if the capacity of the train has not been sold-out.
In 3 classes, Standard, Relax and Business, passengers get the full RegioJet board service scheme:
Passengers also have the possibility of purchasing fresh refreshment selection from the RegioJet board menu – including sushi, salads, snacks, cakes and other items – for the best prices.
“Our policy is to be the best value for money for passengers on rails. For example, on Prague – Vienna line we have proven, that it is possible to bring much higher quality of service on trains for much lower prices in comparison to the traditional train operators,” says Ivana Kašická, general manager of RegioJet trains and buses.
Besides the connections between the Czech Republic and Hungary, the new RegioJet trains will offer better train connections also between two Danube capitals – Vienna and Budapest.
Hungarian train operator Continental Railway Solutions will be technically responsible for operations of RegioJet trains on the Hungarian territory. It means that CRS lok-drivers and train-chefs will be responsible for all traffic obligations on the Hungarian railway network. The same will be provided by WESTbahn on the Austrian territory.
For many years, Budapest has been a traditional destination for RegioJet buses. On a daily basis RegioJet operates 14 bus connections to and from Budapest connecting it with Prague, Vienna, Brno and Bratislava.
