In the direction to Kačerov the service on this line will be reinforced by the inclusion of XC1 buses that will not serve the Roztyly stop, and during work day morning rush hours also by XC2 buses that will be in operation on the Háje – Opatov – Chodov – Budějovická route (in this direction only) and that will not serve the Roztyly and the Kačerov stops.
