Trains are to return to several lines on Sunday, in April they will arrive to Ostrava Airport
Prague, 12 December 2014 – Mid-December is usually a period of great changes in public transport. On the Czech railway, the new timetable is prepared by the Railway Infrastructure Administration, based on requirements from individual transport operators. Most of the trains – 8,457 of them – are operated traditionally by České dráhy (Czech Railways), the other carriers operate 477 trains in total.
What particular news will be brought by the timetable for 2015 which is valid as of Sunday 14 December? It is worth mentioning the renewal of regular operation on two lines. Four passenger trains will be servicing the connection between Moravská Třebová in Pardubice Region and Dzbel situated in the neighbouring Olomouc Region. Passengers will have the possibility to change trains there in direction to Prostějov. One additional pair of trains will be operated also in Pardubice Region on the line Holice - Borohrádek.
In the same region, railway stops at Vendolí, Květná and Pomezí on the line Svitavy – Žďárec u Skutče will be in use once again. A quite new stop will be opened for passengers at Kačerov in Prague as well as Chýně-Jih which is another stop being opened in a village near Prague after several months. More railway stops are planned for opening during the validity of the upcoming timetable.
On 13 April next year, railway operation is planned to start on the newly built railway line to Leoš Janáček Airport in Ostrava. Transport will be assured by České dráhy with suburban train-sets that will be running usually in two-hour intervals on the route Mošnov, Ostrava Airport – Studénka – Ostrava – Bohumín – Mosty u Jablunkova and back.
Passengers will surely appreciate a faster and more comfortable ride through the newly completed railway junctions in Břeclav and Ústí nad Orlicí. During next year, investments on many lines will be launched which will have an impact on trains’ regularity on the contrary; in many cases, substitute bus transport will have to be used.
