Revision as of 14:56, 30 September 2017


This list is based on the service valid from 11 December 2016. CP no longer publish a national railway timetable, so there are no table numbers.

CP's timetable periods nominally coincide with those in the rest of Europe, but in practice timetables are changed on an ad hoc basis, often with little notice.

Standard abbreviations are explained in General Information.
