Passenger Rail Linking Szeged, Subotica Restarts After 8 Years
Passenger rail transport between Szeged (170 km southeast of Budapest) and Subotica, Serbia, has restarted after eight years with five trains per day, Hungarian State Railways MÁV announced earlier this week, according to profitline.hu.
As part of the railway line development between Szeged-Rendező and the Röszke (190 km southeast of Budapest) border, more than 13 kilometers of the track and its surroundings have been renewed.
Freight trains have been running on the section since August last year, and passenger traffic resumed on Tuesday.
The journey time between Szeged and Subotica is roughly one and a half hours, including the border police checks.
