Fast trains

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

Fast trains (R) and express (Ex) trains stop only at the most important stations or stops, and provide fast connections between regions in the Czech Republic, as well as to foreign destinations. They offer travel in 1st and 2nd carriage class as well as optional seat reservations. The trains are able to transport bicycles, prams and strollers, as well as other bulky luggage. On selected express (Ex) trains, you can purchase refreshments using the in-seat service. Fast trains (R) and some express (Ex) trains are commissioned and co-financed by the Ministry of Transport of the Czech Republic. Other express (Ex) trains have not been commissioned and are co-financed at ČD’s own commercial risk.
