RegioJet becomes member of MERITS-PRIFIS

  • Passenger

In June 2014, RegioJet became a member of MERITS-PRIFIS.
Merits is the UIC central timetable database with all train data and all station data within wider Europe, including Russia and Turkey. Prifis is also a UIC central database which contains all tariffs and fares for Non Integrated Reservation Tickets (NRT) and Integrated Reservation Tickets (IRT). All these databases are shared between all the members of the Merits-Prifis community in order to fill their own journey planners with the aim of giving timetable/fare information and/or selling tickets in another country.

RegioJet is an independent private operator (part of Student Agency Holding), which became Central Europe’s first international open-access passenger operator in 2011 by running services on the Prague – Ostrava route.
Regiojet now operates nearly 100 coaches and owns 9 locomotives operating 9 return trains per day.

From March 2012, RegioJet was awarded a contract to operate the subsidised Bratislava-Komárno line in Slovakia. The number of passengers doubled after RegioJet replaced national operator ZSSK on this line.

Overall in 2013, RegioJet carried over 3.4 million passengers in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
