The Czechs has been traveling by train more often these days than ever. Private carriers as well as the public one have reported record increase of their passengers.

There is a need to book tickets for placement links at least in one day advance especially at peaks such as Friday afternoon and Monday morning. In these time slots trains are full particularly at busiest lines.

Growing number of travelers is attributed to improving services on trains and growing competition from carriers. Ongoing repairs of motorways have obviously impacted increasing interest in other forms of transport such as traveling by train.

There are three carriers serving all the Czech railway stations and two of them ensure connection with European cities. The only public one called the Czech Railways with its densest rail network is the main carrier for journeys within the Czech Republic as well as to the European cities. The RegioJet serves track on the railway route Olomouc–Ostrava–Třinec–Zilina (Slovakia). The Leo Express ensures the connection between Prague and Ostrava.

The Czech Railways has transported two million more passengers from this January to September comparing to the same period last year. The private carriers such as the RegioJet and the LEO Express reported twenty percent respectively ten percent year-on-year increase of passengers. While doing so the LEO Express reduced the number of train sets from five to four being used this year.

To ensure superior comfort for travelers the Railway Infrastructure Administration has included repair of a wide range of railway lines to its working schedule.

Moreover the Czech Railways might suffer from a lack of train sets in near future. To help improve the situation its management had already approved the intend to invest twenty billion Czech crowns into infrastructure. They plan to buy one hundred and sixty four new train sets in the upcoming years.
