New RegioPanters will be deployed by České dráhy on the line from Prague via Kralupy nad Vltavou to Ústí nad Labem starting this December. On the track, the test operation of the first unit in sharp operation began. By the end of this year, a total of 22 new RegioPanter PID units, which will increase the capacity of suburban electric trains by 4,950 seats, will hit the tracks in Prague, the Central Bohemian and Ústí Regions. These units are fully air-conditioned, barrier-free and equipped with on-board Wi-Fi network.

According to Michal Krapinec, Chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO of Czech Railways, RegioPanters will form the new backbone of the regional fleet of Czech Railways. “Thanks to them, passengers will experience comfort that has so far only been a standard for long-distance trains. This year, we will carry out the largest renewal of regional and long-distance trains since the creation of Czech Railways. We will put about 440 individual vehicles into operation. Without much exaggeration, we will literally experience a qualitative revolution in domestic colleges,” he promised.
