The organizers of public transport in the Liberec Region (KORID LK), the Central Bohemian Region (IDSK) and Prague (Ropid) will receive a new concept of interregional lines, the aim of which is to improve the accessibility of public transport. What have these changes brought from the perspective of the Liberec Region since 12 December this year?
Jointly prepared interregional lines will be involved in both integrated transport systems, ie IDOL in the Liberec Region and PID in the Central Bohemian Region and Prague. “Passengers will thus be able to combine the travel documents of both IDS, and thus take advantage of time or network tickets,” says Jan Sviták, the statutory deputy governor in charge of managing the transport department.
The backbone of the entire connection will be long-distance lines that connect various parts of the Liberec region with Prague. For example, lines from Českolipsko, Jablonec nad Nisou or Turnov will run in Prague about every hour. Selected connections will then continue from Turnov towards Tanvald or Semily and further into the mountains (to Harrachov or to Mísečky). From Jablonec, part of the connections will continue in the direction of Harrachov and Rokytnice nad Jizerou.
The connection between Liberec and Mladá Boleslav will also change. On the one hand, there will be a strengthening of offers, but it will also be mostly connected to Prague. “The goal is not to compete with the express connections of commercial carriers, not even in terms of price. But in cooperation with the Central Bohemian Region, we want to effectively connect the lines from Liberec to Mladá Boleslav and from Mnichovo Hradiště to Prague, “but Otto Pospíšil, CEO of KORID LK.

The interconnection of lines offered the possibility of a better connection of municipalities between Liberec and Mladá Boleslav with Prague. For passengers from Liberec, however, an interesting novelty will be the marginal connections before 4 am and after midnight from Prague. A partially low-floor bus will be used on most connections. “And we still believe that the connection will also be used by people with limited mobility and orientation. After all, we record comments on this in the past, “added Pospíšil. On the connections to Škoda Auto, a comfortable 15 m bus will continue to operate, which passengers are used to.
Improving the offer of connections with passengers by waiting also on regional routes, eg between Mnichový Hradiště and Turnov, or Český Dub. “We are very pleased that this project, which we have been preparing since 2019, has approached a successful goal. At the same time, we believe that improving the connection will also help people in the time of “pocovidové”, for example, we will allow people to travel better for work or for their relatives, “concludes Sviták.
