Actual Train Times
Scans of historical timetables from 1988, 1944 and 1918 are available on the Zelpage website.
Železniční Jízdní Řád. All operators trains are included. Printed in Czech throughout but with general instructions in English, German and French. Timetable supplements are issued (June 2023) but from 2019 have been only issued online. A fold-out, near-geographic route diagram is included in the timetable, and there are enlargements of the Praha, Brno and Ostrava areas.
Additional Notes on reading the Timetable
- The "crossed hammers" working days symbol means "Mondays to Fridays" and not, as for most other railways, "Mondays to Saturdays".
- Two useful symbols exist which show the booked route for trains not calling at a station: in the middle of the train column, a vertical bar "|" means that the train passes through the station without stopping, whereas a vertical 'wiggly line' ">" and "<" means that the train does not pass through that station but instead takes a different route. This must not be confused with a vertical 'wiggly line' to the left of the time, which means that the train runs only on certain days.
ČD website Omezení provozu. Shows map of current engineering works; select "Omezení Provozu Podle Tratí a Kraju" or "Omezení Provozu Podle Vlaku" for Traffic restrictions by line ("Trať") or region ("Trať") or by trains ("Vlaku") respectively, then "Dnes" (today), "Zítra" (tomorrow) or "datum" (date), or by clicking on a region on the map.
Access the IDOS website and click on the English (or German) icon (given by small flags) in the bottom right hand corner. Enquiries can specify 'train only', 'bus only' or a combination of these (the default option), plus public transport in Brno, Ostrava and Prague.

ČD offers its own All-day ticket (Celodenní jízdenka). This is much better value than the standard One Country passes and includes tickets valid on the entire network for a time period, tickets valid only at weekends and also regional tickets. In addition, in recent years a highly discounted two-week ČD ticket Jízdenka na léto has been available during the summer (In 2023 from 01 July - 31 August). Note that CD tickets are not generally accepted on other operators services.
Since December 2020, the One Ticket has been available, allowing travel on most railway operators except Leo Express. A small supplement is required for certain long distance services operated by ČD and Regiojet. The ticket is available in one week up to one year versions, in both first and second class. An app is also available, with the benefit that only trains that are included in the ticket are shown. Reservations on RJ trains can be made in the Regiojet app by clicking the 'seat reservation' option.
It should be noted that the individual regions (‘kraj’) are increasingly encouraging tickets offered under their own individual regional integrated ticket systems, particularly in South Moravia where it is no longer possible to buy a ČD local ticket for travel only within the region. Local tickets to destinations outside of the area are unaffected.
Since 1 January 2003 infrastructure has been managed by a state organization, which is currently Správa železnic(SŽ). Prior to 1 January 2020 the name was Správa železniční dopravní cesty (SŽDC).

Standard, except for the 760 mm gauge routes from Jindřichúv Hradec to Obrataň and Nová Bystřice, and from Třemešná ve Slezsku to Osoblaha.
Part of the Liberec tram system is 1000 mm gauge.
Generally, lines to the north and east of Praha are electrified at 3 kV DC, whereas those to the west and south of Praha are electrified at 25 kV 50 Hz. The two systems meet at
- km 42,360 between Beroun Králův Dvůr and Beroun Králův Dvůr-Popovice on the line between Praha and Plzeň;
- Benešov u Prahy, on the line between Praha and České Budějovice;
- Klášterec nad Ohri, near Kadaň on the line between Chomutov and Karlovy Vary;
- Kutná Hora, on the line between Kolín and Brno;
- Svitavy-Lány, on the line between Česká Třebova and Brno;
- Nezamyslice, on the line between Přerov and Brno; and
- Říkovice, on the line between Přerov and Břeclav.
There is an isolated 1500 V dc branch in the south from Tábor to Bechyně which in January 2020 was approved by the Regional Government for conversion to 25 kv in 2023/24 but this needs to be ratified by the Transport Ministry.
Retz (Austria) - Šatov - Znojmo is electrified at 15 kV AC.
The Transport ministry decided in December 2016 that SŽDC (now SŽ) must convert all 3 kV DC lines to 25 kV AC in a programme to be implemented between 2025 and 2040. A 43 km section of the Břeclav – Přerov main line (Nedakonice – Říkovice) was converted on 14 Jul 2022. It seems Šatov - Znojmo will not be converted.
Rule of the road
Right-hand. Bohumín - Břeclav converted from left-hand to right-hand running on 9 December 2012. An unusual flyover arrangement existed at the eastern end of the Přerov avoiding line to effect a changeover, now no longer required. Most double-tracked routes are reversibly signalled and often used as such.
- Annex B of the Network Statement 2023 gives the total length of each line in column 5, in addition to other information.
- On the Atlaskolejowy website select the line from the drop down list labelled 'Wykaz linii kolejowych w Czechach' .
- The "Atlas Drah, Ceské Republiky 2006-2007” gives detailed distances. See Maps above.

Recent and future changes
Closures / Service Reductions
In response to the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic on its finances, in May 2021 the Central Bohemian Region (Středočeský kraj) planned closures or service reductions to regionally funded train services on various routes or sections details here.
Some lines on the list have now closed but those still open as at January 2023 are listed below, to draw attention to the threat of closure or reduction in service.
- 012 Plaňany – Kouřim: stoppage of service, replacement buses. (Weekend and weekday peak-only service between Bošice and Kouřim).
- 014 Uhlířské Janovice – Ledečko: only seasonal and recreational trains, otherwise replacement buses. (Still running in 2023)
- 076 Mladá Boleslav – Mělník: stoppage of service on weekdays, replacement buses, weekend service. (Sparse weekday service as well as weekend service still running in 2023)
- 110 Klobuky v Čechách – Peruc: stoppage of service, operation of seasonal trains only, replacement buses (Still running in 2023)
- 121 Hostivice – Podlešín: restrictions on the entire route except for trains to Amazon and operation of Cyklohráček (Still running in 2023 although summer weekend-only beyond Noutonice and extremely sparse beyond Středokluky)
- 124 Lužná u Rakovníka – Deštnice: restriction of traffic to weekend trains and weekly commute (Monday, Friday) (Still running in 2023 but was listed as at risk of closure in December 2023, including the section in Ústecký kraj through to Žatec, although this threat may have been lifted for the moment)
- 162 Rakovník – Kralovice u Rakovníka: stoppage of traffic, replacement by buses. (Only one summer weekend train pair operates, run by KŽC)
- 233 Čelákovice – Mochov: stoppage of service without replacement. (One train pair operates on 1 April only, run by KŽC)
Projects under way or planned
110 (part) Slaný – Louny was listed as planned for closure in December 2023, but this threat may have been lifted.
In May 2020 infrastructure manager SŽ republished a tender to prepare documentation on the alignment of the initial 23 km Prague-Běchovice - Poříčany section of the planned Praha – Brno high-speed line. It will connect with the existing Poříčany – Pečky and Sadská – Nymburk město lines.
260: Česká Třebová - Vyškov na Moravě: The route between Blansko and Brno hlavní nádraží is closed for reconstruction for the whole of the 2021/22 timetable period with train diversions in operation - see.
220: From 02 April 2022 to 30 June 2022 the 19.4 km section between Votice and Sudoměřice u Tábora was completely closed while final preparations were made for the commissioning the new line between the two. This opened on 30 June 2022 initially as single track, with the second track opening in August 2022. This involves several realignments, which shortened the line by 2 km. The work includes the Mezno (840m) and Deborec (660m) tunnels and three new viaducts between Heřmaničky and Ješetice. See.
087: Lovosice - Česká Lípa temporarily closed March - August 2022 for reconstruction of the line to increase the line speed up to 100km/h, with automation of manually operated level crossings. Žalhostice station will be completely rebuilt with new track layout and platforms.
238: Use of the Břevnice (odbočka Kubešův Mlýn) – Havlíčkův Brod (HB St. Tunel) connection was due to cease on 11 December 2021 and its continued use into the current timetable period is not confirmed. The regular route from Havlíčkův Brod towards Hlinsko / Pardubice is closed owing to replacement of the bridge over the Sázava River. Trains times will not be altered but will use Platforms 1-4 and depart in the Brno direction. See Zdopravy.cz.
089 Cross-border services operated by 'Trilex' (Die Länderbahn GmbH) between Varnsdorf-pivovar Kocour and Seifhennersdorf DB remain cancelled and replaced by mini-bus (SEV) until further notice (since 31 March 2015), despite various reports that they were to re-commence. Details of the SEV service can be found here.
254: Šakvice - Hustopeče u Brna: Electrification at 25kV inaugurated 12 December 2020 with a direct service S3 Hustopeče u Brna to Brno.
097: In February 2020 the CZ Ministry of Transport approved plans for re-construction of the flood-damaged section between Chotiměř and Radejčín, including a new bridge. SZ are to announce the results of tenders for the work in 2022.
132 Děčín hl.n.- Oldřichov u Duchcova: Dependent on Správa železnic, re-opening of the Děčín hl.n. - Telnice section as Line 139 for summer-only weekend services by KZC doprava from 02 April 2022. (See). The line was closed to passengers in December 2007, Telnice - Oldřichov u Duchcova was closed completely in 2011 and the track is now in very poor condition with rails stolen from some locations. Seasonal trains operated irregularly over the Děčín hl.n. – Telnice section from 2013 until 26 October 2015, after which the whole line was taken out of use due to the poor state of the track. See.
202 Tábor - Bechyně: Conversion of the electrification to 25kV AC from 1500V DC (originally 700V DC) was approved on 31 January 2020, for implementation in 2023-24.
180 Doubling and electrification of this route from Plzeň to Furth im Wald is planned. Work on the first section, from Plzeň hl.n - Vejprnice involving re-alignment of the Route 170 flyover at Plzeň-Skvrňany commenced on 01 March 2018, this double track section opening on 30 June 2019. Between Plzen and Zbuch a new 200km/h line will be built, the old line through Nýřany being retained and electrified, while between Stod and Holýšov and Blizejov and Domažlice new lines will be built and the old alignments abandoned. See.
Despite considerable opposition to the closure of Brno hlavni nádraží and the main line running through it, the City of Brno and the Region of South Moravia have decided to site the new main station in the Trnitá urban redevelopment area by the Svratka River. This is close to Brno dolni nádraží on the freight line between odb. Černovice and Horní Heršpice. The new station will have 14 platforms and a regional bus station. This will presumably require the quadrupling of the existing line. It will cost €1·8bn and completion is envisaged in 2032-35.
The decision is clearly driven by a wish to redevelop the land released by the closure of Brno hl n. As at June 2018 the Central Committee of the Ministry of Transport was considering the four suggested alternatives for an underground transport connection from the new station. This new transit connection, which some people are calling “Brno’s subway”, is to connect the north of the city with the centre and the south but this is not yet funded.
The long planned rail link from central Praha to Ruzyně Airport will involve double-tracking and 3 kV DC electrification of the Masarykovo - Dejvice - Praha-Ruzyně line, with a new branch to the airport. (See). Reconstruction started in June 2017 of the 1850-built 'Negrelli' viaduct over the Vltava river, just north of Praha Masarykovo, involving a total closure from 04 July 2017. The line reopened on 01 June 2020, when the temporary station, Praha-Bubny Vltavska, located south of Praha Bubny and connected to the Metro Line C Vltavska station by a new entrance opened 15 August 2017, was closed.
312 (Bruntál – Malá Moravká), previously at risk of total closure, now appears in the new timetable as Table 312. A measuring train visited the line in July 2015 and a railtour in February 2016. However, following track repairs, services operating during summer weekends and on public holidays began on 30 June 2018, operated by MBM Rail and Slezsky Zeleznicni Spolek, after funding for seasonal services for at least seven years was secured.
Significant realignment work has been a theme in recent years with completion of a higher speed allowing curve immediately to the east of Usti nad Orlici on the Praha - České Trebova main line and a new 2km section south of Veseli nad Lužnici on the Praha - České-Budějovice line. In the future there is a proposal to upgrade between Česká Lípa and Mimon on the line to Liberec by 2022 which would involve around 2km of line straightening plus the relocation of Zákupy station.
143 In July 2018 SŽDC announced electrification of JR143 Kadaň-Prunéřov - Kadaň at 25kV, the work to be completed in 2021/22, 26 months from signing of contracts.
070 Proposals announced in August 2018 to build a new electrified double track beside the D10 motorway line around the east of Mladá Boleslav from JR071 at Bezděčín to allow freight trains from Nymburk to reach the Skoda auto plant at Mladá Boleslav město without going through Mladá Boleslav hl.n. Construction could begin in 2019-2020. A new station, Mladá Boleslav východ, is proposed on the link which would form part of a future Praha - Mladá Boleslav passenger route if the Všejanská spojka (Lysá nad Labem - Milovice - Čachovice) projected line is built in the future. Mladá Boleslav hl.n is proposed to be completely rebuilt under the proposals. A direct curve from Mladá Boleslav město to line JR070 to avoid reversal at Mladá Boleslav hl.n is also planned. See.
Praha Metro Line B is to be extended from Zličin to Zličin metro depot. See.
Closure of the western section of the metre gauge Liberec tramway interurban branch to Jablonec nad Nisou, between Liberec and Vratislavice from 18 July 2021 up to 19 November 2021, for conversion to standard gauge [1435 mm]. The remaining metre gauge section; from Vratislavice to the terminus at Jablonec nad Nisou also closed on 18 July 2021, for conversion to standard gauge, but this is expected to reopen at the end of 2022. During the closure, metre gauge tramcars are being converted to standard gauge.

At busy junctions in country areas it can sometimes be difficult to ascertain which is which train. Most units have a digital display on each side of the train but some older units only have a paper notice or laminated card in the door window. If there is any doubt, the departure indicator in the station should give the track number; these are numbered outwards from the station building starting at 1. Track numbers are often not given until shortly before departure to prevent people walking across the tracks when there may be train movements. Platform numbers can also be found by using the ČD app ("Můj Vlak").
At certain branch line termini or reversal points when the stock used is a railcar and trailer coach, the railcar will run round its trailer. By remaining on the railcar during this manoeuvre, a considerable extra distance beyond the terminal station platforms may be covered.
At the following locations trains on the indicated route make a reversal manoeuvre away from the main station area:
- 041: Turnov (twice)
- 074: Neratovice
- 076: Mladá Boleslav
- 144: Chodov (twice)
- former 164: Kaštice ("Doupovská dráha" services from Kadaň and Krásný Dvůr)
- 235: Kutná Hora hlavní n.
