New trains are to be added in the areas surrounding Bratislava, Žilina and the High Tatras as of Sunday, June 10, the national rail transport operator ZSSK announced as part of its regular change of timetables. In the vicinity of Bratislava, 56 new connections are to be added, of which 27 will be on the Bratislava - Trnava route, with 29 trains destined for the Bratislava - Senec route. For both routes, trains will run every 30-minutes. "In this case, we're talking about adding 17,000 seats," said Transport Minister Arpad Érsek (Most-Híd). A new connection will also be introduced from the Bratislava-Nove Mesto station to the Bratislava-Petržalka station, traversing Prístavný most (Port Bridge), where passenger trains have not run for six years. New train connections will also be added for the inhabitants of the Kysuce area and on the line between Žilina and Čadca. Transport will also be strengthened in the High Tatras during the summer season with sixteen supplemental trains being added.
