A total of 29 used railcars will be delivered to the Czech carrier. They are planned to be modernized with an almost complete replacement of the interior.

In the future, the cars will be used for long-distance trains in the Czech Republic, as well as on international routes to Slovakia, Poland, Austria and other countries.

In the future, RegioJet intends to focus more on purchasing new wagons for its trains. In the second half of this year, 6 cars from the Romanian manufacturer Astra Rail (owned by the American company Greenbrier) will be delivered.

The locomotive fleet this year will be replenished with a total of 15 multi-system Bombardier Traxx locomotives.
