The Czech state-owned passenger train operator České dráhy has announced a public tender for the supply of up to50 electric trains for regional transport, the company announced in a press release on Wednesday.
The value of the tender is expected to reach over six billion crowns. The tender is expected to give the company a better chance of winning regional train contracts when the existing contracts expire at the end of 2019.
České Dráhy operates over 7,000 trains a day on average. Last year they transported nearly 175 million passengers.
