Uniform ticket for all trains is coming to the Czech railways on June 14 2020. The first ones to test it would be passengers from Usti, Liberec and Pilsen regions on selected lines.
Field tests begin on Sunday, June 14, and are focused on detecting possible errors and tuning the system to be fully functional on transition to live operation. The scope of the field testing is in line with previously published intention - 5 carriers, 2 tracks and 146 lines.
Fild tests are planned to begin this June, as the first opportunity for public to try OneTicket. This process is meant to technologically test the system in the real operation and debug all the issues, that may occur while deploying. As the system is going live this December, every functionallity needs to be tested.
At first, five carriers would be involved within two areas of the Czech republic. With OneTicket, you don't have to puzzle over which train you can take. No matter if it's green, yellow, orange, blue or dotted, OneTicket would be valid for all carriers, who are involved in field test. You also can switch between trains without buying new tickets.
Field test areas are chosen the way that on each railway is more than one carrier, so everyone could choose and test OneTicket well.
There are both field test areas shown on the map and diagrams above. You can choose to take either fast trains of Arriva or regional train of České Dráhy between Rumburk and Česká Lípa. For the ones regularly travelling to school or work is there line OneTicket, which saves you from being able to use trains of on carrier only. You simply choose the time and train, that suits your needs.
The second area of field tests goes from Plzeň to Most. You can switch from fast trains of GW Train Regio to local trains of České Dráhy while travelling from Plzeň. Travellers from Most, Chomutov and Žatec can choose between trains of RegioJet ÚK and the ones of Die Länderbahn CZ. More information regarding OneTicket, including pricing conditions, could be found in individual sections of this website.
