Since August, four new two-carriage, barrier-free and air-conditioned RegioPanter units from Pilsen company Škoda Transportation in Pilsen have started to run on the Pilsen – Cheb – Karlovy Vary high-speed train line. Now these units have been solemnly baptized.

"RegioPanter trains offer similar comfort on West Bohemian lines as the most modern long-distance trains. Passengers have Wi-Fi internet access, electrical outlets, and USB ports for charging travel electronics such as mobile phones, tablets, or laptops in air-conditioned compartments. Passengers with infants have a changing table and people in wheelchairs have comfortable wheelchair travel. A complete novelty in the Czech Republic is also a special socket for charging electric wheelchair," says Jiří Ješeta, ČD's Deputy Director-General for Business.

České dráhy already operates 9 RegioPanter electric units in the Pilsen Region on the P1 Horažďovice line in the suburbs – Pilsen – Pňovany. Already in December, another 11 new RegioPanter units will be added to the P2 Klatovy – Pilsen – Beroun line. The acquisition of new kits fits into the České dráhy Strategy for 2030, which envisages expanding services and removing barriers to travel. 

Passengers from the Pilsen Region will also see new trains in long-distance transport. From This December, InterJet trains will be gradually deployed on the Ex6 West Express line Prague – Pilsen – Cheb. These will also offer passengers maximum comfort, including air conditioning, Wi-Fi, electrical outlets, and USB ports. In addition, these cars will be the first in Central Europe to be equipped with special windows that better transmit mobile signals to make better phone calls.
