Fast trains

Fast (R) trains will transport you quickly from city to city and between regions.

Fast (R) trains stop only at more important stations or stops, and provide fast connections between regions in the Czech Republic. They generally offer travel in 1st and 2nd carriage class, as well as optional seat reservations. The trains are able to transport bicycles, prams and strollers, in addition to other bulky luggage. Modern carriages are being deployed gradually, and the category of train then changes to that of higher-quality fast (Rx) trains. Fast (R) trains are commissioned and co-financed by the Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic.
