It says people will be able to arrive in the capital an hour earlier.

As of Sep. 3, Vilnius-Klaipėda and Klaipėda-Vilnius trains will leave at 5.10 a.m. on workdays. Other early trains will also remain, including the 6.40 a.m. train leaving Klaipeda and the 6.50 a.m. train from Vilnius.

Mantas Dubauskas, spokesman for Lietuvos Geležinkeliai, says the evening schedule will be also more convenient for passengers.

"The later return will also be resumed on Sep. 3 as the trains will leave Vilnius at around 6 p.m. to Klaipėda. The trains will be more adapted to business clients who need to go to Vilnius on workdays," Dubauskas said.
