From 10 December, after the changes in the train timetable, we will use new routes and routes to the Czech Republic. New trains will go on the route Wroclaw Główny – Kłodzko – Lichkov, and from April to Adrspach.
Passengers of the Lower Silesian Railway to the Czech Republic will go with new 5-wire electric traction units produced by Newag. All warehouses are equipped with state-of-the-art security systems. Additionally, in order to be able to travel on the paths of our southern neighbors, it was necessary to equip trains on the Czech radio and Czech security devices (MIREL).
– The tests of our five-member EZT in the Czech Republic were necessary if we wanted to ride on the tracks there. The main objective was to check the compatibility of vehicles with Czech infrastructure. In particular, the pantograph was co-operated with the traction network and the sliding steps facilitating the removal of the vehicle. The tests were a success, especially because the tests were supervised by Drážni úřad (Czech Security Authority) and SŽDC (Czech National Infrastructure Manager) – emphasizes Piotr Malepszak, vice president of the Lower Silesian Railways Board.
– The cooperation with our Czech partners is exemplary, so we decided to go ahead and offer our passengers further connections. With the use of modern vehicles of the Lower Silesian Railway, passengers gain not only new possibilities of travel but also greater comfort – notes Jerzy Michalak, member of the Lower Silesian Voivodship Board.
Currently, the Lower Silesian Railway operates two connections with the Czech Republic: Jelenia Gora – Trutnov and Szklarska Poręba – Liberec. From the new timetable, passengers will be able to use the train from Wroclaw Główny -Klodzko – Lichkov. On the other hand, from 28 April, the weekend will be connected Wroclaw Główny – Adrspach. Visitors of the region will be able to visit the famous Czech Rock City.
There will also be a new offer “Tariff Poland-Czech Republic”, which will replace the current “MPS Tariff” and offer “Prague with KD”. Under the new tariff will be available two types of one-way tickets for the “go” and two-day tickets for the “go back and forth”.
From December this tariff will cover two sections:
Wroclaw – Szklarska Poręba Jakuszyce – Harrachov – Liberec / Josefův Důl / Železný Brod – Praha hl.n. and Wroclaw Głogów – Międzylesie – Lichkov – Ústí nad Orlicí – Brno hl.n. / Praha hl.n.
For each section of the border will be charged the same fee of 4.00 zł (with 50% relief for children). From Wroclaw to Prague you will be able to go for 50 zł – every day of the week and throughout the year.
