VILNIUS - LTG Link, the passenger transportation arm of Lietuvos Gelezinkeliai (Lithuanian Railways), is relaunching its train service to Poland in late July.  

Trains will start running again from Kaunas and Bialystok and back from July 31, the company said on Wednesday. 

"We had watched the coronavirus situation, passenger flows within the country, and their needs for train travel abroad for some time before making the decision," LTG Link CEO Linas Bauzys said in a press release.

The railway operator halted cross-border passenger travel on March 16 when the Lithuanian government introduced a nationwide quarantine in a bid to stem the spread of the coronavirus.
