MÁV Suspends Sleeping & Dining Cars On International Trains
Hungarian State Railways (MÁV) suspended the service of sleeping and dining cars on its international routes in line with government measures and in order to protect rail passenger staff, reports portfolio.hu.

The provision entered into force on all international routes on September 1, with MÁV-Start replacing sleeping cars with regular carriages.

For the time being, there are no restrictions in the international timetable for train traffic, MÁV said.

Due to the measures taken by the Hungarian government to restrict international travel, MÁV-Start will reimburse the price of international tickets for September without handling costs, regardless of the destination country, if the passenger chooses to cancel the trip.
