The seasonal tourist train will run once a day on the route Osijek-Virovitica-Bjelovar-Zagreb-Split. It will depart from Osijek at 8 pm, it will arrive in Bjelovar at 11:35 pm, and its final destination is Split when it should arrive at 8:42 am.
Return from Split is planned every day at 10:06 pm, the train would arrive in Bjelovar at 8:11 am and in Osijek at 11:36 am.
This line will run until August 27, and it is important to note that children and students of primary and secondary schools will be able to travel for free, in accordance with the Croatian Government’s conclusion on the introduction of a pilot project of free public rail transport.
To remind, this pilot project includes unlimited daily train journeys from the place of residence to the place of schooling and occasional trips, such as day trips, doctor’s trips, vacations and other trips in the 2nd class of regular trains.
Bjelovar-Bilogora County Prefect Marko Marušić points out:
The direct railway line that will connect Bjelovar to the Adriatic for the first time is the result of our efforts and the discussion we started last autumn. We are extremely satisfied with the agreement reached with HŽ Putnički Prijevoz and we consider it important progress in connecting Bjelovar with other parts of Croatia.
