Strengthening connections from Croatia and Slovenia to Italy

International Memorandum of Understanding on timetable harmonization signed in Ljubljana.

On annual SEE event in Ljubljana on 24th and 25th September, Croatian and Slovenian national railway operators, HŽ Putnički prijevoz and SŽ – Potniški promet, signed a Memorandum of Understanding on timetable harmonization, on line Zagreb – Ljubljana – Trieste.

Memorandum was signed by Mr. Renato Humić (HŽ Putnički prijevoz) and Mr. Miloš Rovšnik (SŽ – Potniški promet), within a Rail4SEE field trip, on the first day, in Ljubljana Castle.

What does it mean for passengers? More quality transportation service on Zagreb – Trieste line in timetable 2014/2015, including the change of trains in Ljubljana, to Villa Opicina, where bus transportation is available to the final destination – Trieste. Transfer time in Ljubljana will take about an hour for both directions, which will enable passengers from Zagreb to reach Italy with minimal number of transfers and shorter travelling time. The same applies to return journey, when, also, train number 410/411 continues its journey to Belgrade.
