Exceptional passenger transport timetable change as of 7 September 2015
Prague, 21 August 2015 – The Railway Infrastructure Administration prepared an exceptional passenger transport 2015 timetable change as of Monday, 7 September. This occurred based on a request of České dráhy, joint stock company.
Within this change, only one modification occurs in long-distance passenger transport for seat reservations in trains No 242 and 243 “Košičan” where seat reservations are no longer obligatory. On the contrary, obligatory seat reservations have been introduced in trains No 444 and 445 “Slovakia” (this measure is already valid based on a notice of České dráhy).
In regional transport, the regular train No 20201 in Hradec Králové Region on the line 021 in the section Častolovice – Týniště nad Orlicí rides by 8 minutes sooner due to a connection to the through train No 1871 in direction to Choceň. In Pardubice Region, all trains on the line 024 stop at the new railway stop Červená Voda-Pod rozhlednou which is to be built and put into operation this September.
One change occurred on 19 August already which however did not show in the timetable as such. Upon completion of the continuous closure on the line 173 Praha-Smíchov – Rudná u Prahy – Beroun, all regular trains started stopping at the newly built railway stop Praha-Hlubočepy which replaced a railway station of the same name situated further from the centre of the Prague suburb and newly serving only for trains’ crossings.
Although this change is minimal we recommend passengers to verify current information about their train connection before boarding the train. Adapted timetables will be published on the website www.szdc.cz or www.cd.cz as well as at the respective railway stations. More information can be acquired at passenger cash desks and information centres of České dráhy.
