\r\nBoth Regiojet and Czech Railways (CD) applied for the paths being used by the new services, with Czech infrastructure S\u017dDC ultimately ruling in favour of the open-access operator.\r\nRegiojet will operate two return services per day with a journey time of 3h 57min for the 396km trip. Services will call at Pardubice, \u00dast\u00ed nad Orlici, \u010cesk\u00e1 T\u0159ebova, Brno Main Station, B\u0159eclav, K\u00faty and Bratislava Main Station. Prague - Bratislava fares will start at \u20ac14.\r\nPrague - Bratislava is Regiojet\u2019s second cross-border route between the two countries after Prague - Ko\u0161ice, which is served by two return services per day, one of which runs overnight.\r\nFrom December 11 RegioJet will also operate a third service between Prague and Brno, which will run as far as Uhersko Hrad\u00ed\u0161t\u0115 on the Czech-Slovak border.\r\nDue to low demand, Regiojet is reducing the length of Prague \u2013 Havi\u0159ov services from nine to six coaches, which will release rolling stock for the Brno and Bratislava services. Traction will be provided by multi-system Siemens Vectron locomotives leased from ELL, which are equipped to operate on Slovakia\u2019s 25kV 50Hz ac electrification system.\r\nCD filed a legal complaint with the Czech rail regulator in August seeking to block Regiojet from operating Prague - Brno services, but the regulator has not reached a decision on the complaint. At the same time CD petitioned the Court of Justice in Prague to forbid S\u017dDC from allocating track capacity to Regiojet, but this request was rejected.
