HistoryEdit

The company was founded after splitting Polskie Koleje Państwowe (national rail operator) into several companies to meet European Union standards.

OperationsEdit

The company runs the following train categories:

  • Express InterCity Premium (EIP, EIC Premium) – domestic high-speed trains (ED250 New Pendolino) between major cities with obligatory reservation.
  • Express InterCity (EIC) – high-standard trains between major cities and popular tourist destinations:
    • domestic Express InterCity trains with obligatory reservation,
    • EuroCity (EC) – international high-standard trains, reservation obligatory on domestic routes,
    • EuroNight (EN) – international night trains with obligatory reservation.
  • InterCity – affordable express trains with obligatory reservation; higher standard than TLK but the same fare
  • Twoje Linie Kolejowe (TLK, "Your Rail Lines") – affordable express trains with obligatory reservation (with some exceptions); lower standard than InterCity. Some night TLK trains provide couchette and sleeper cars. A limited number of shorter-route TLK trains is 2nd-class only.
    • Międzynarodowy (M) – international fast train (lower standard than EuroCity)
    • Międzynarodowy nocny – international night train (lower standard than EuroNight)
