Two trains operate daily in each direction with a journey time of 1h 55min. Each train is formed of a Siemens Taurus electric locomotive provided by Italian operator Ferrovie Udine Cividale, two coaches accommodating up to 150 passengers, and a bicycle car with spaces for up to 100 bicycles. The coaches for the service are provided by Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB).

The Micotra service has been launched under the EU's Interreg-4c programme, which provides funding for projects promoting regional cooperation. The service will operate until next June under the €1.3m initiative.
