    PKP Intercity with plans for the new decade of operation

    PKP Intercity celebrates its 20th anniversary. For 20 years, the company has spent 8 billion PLN on the purchase and modernization of rolling stock and upgrading technical facilities. These investments and more and more modern rolling stock on the tracks have contributed to a significant increase in the popularity of the carrier’s services – as recently as 2015, the company’s trains carried more than 31 million people and nearly 49 million in 2019 – as well as travel satisfaction.

    As part of the continuation of the largest investment program in the company’s history “PKP Intercity – Large Investment Railway” until 2030 the carrier will invest PLN 19 billion in modern rolling stock.

     

    The plans include investments in cars, modern locomotives, electric multiple units, and double-decker push-pull trainsets. By 2030, the carrier’s entire fleet will be new or upgraded, ensuring a high level of travel safety and comfort.

     

    Currently, PKP Intercity has contracted nearly PLN 5.2 billion for rolling stock and infrastructure. In recent years, as part of the implemented rolling stock strategy, PKP Intercity received a total of over 600 modernized cars. In the coming months, the company plans to order the modernization of another 321 cars.

     

    In parallel to preparing further tenders, PKP Intercity is working on a new concept of modern cars which will appear on tracks in the coming years. A new approach to train design aims to make tomorrow’s trains even more comfortable, friendly, and fully functional for travelers.
