Czech carrier RegioJet intends to launch a train between Poland and Ukraine
At the end of March 2022, the Polish Railway Transport Authority received an application from the Czech private railway operator RegioJet to launch a commercial passenger service on the Przemysl-Medica (Poland)-Mostiska II (Ukraine) route.
This is reported by the railway magazine Railway Supply, citing the CFTS.
The carrier announced its readiness to provide a new passenger transportation service from June 12 to December 12, 2026.
It is noted that the stop in Medica will be made only for the purpose of passing the necessary border procedures.
Trips must be operated once a day for each direction.
For traffic, it is planned to use the infrastructure of the European railway track 1435 mm.
A Siemens Vectron or Bombardier Traxx locomotive and railcars with seating or sleeping places will be involved in transportation.
It is noted that the path of the European standard 1435 mm reaches the Mostyska I station in the Lviv region (following the Mostyska II station).
RegioJet has repeatedly planned to launch a train to the Lviv region, but earlier this was prevented by the pandemic.
