Passengers traveling on trains operated by PKP Intercity will soon be able to buy tickets online, and ticket machines will be installed on some railway stations. The carrier has launched customer service centers and opened electronic information desks in the main railway stations. It has also installed 400 mobile terminals to allow passengers to pay for their tickets aboard trains by card.

The company's rolling stock is undergoing modernization. The carrier has bought 10 Siemens Eurosprinter multi-system engines, whose maximum speed is 230 kph, and is preparing to buy 20 articulated trains capable of traveling at a speed of over 200 kph.

PKP Intercity also offers its customers a conference car with the latest electronic gear. Manufactured in Poland, the car's main feature is a conference table for 20 provided with built-in sockets for portable computers. Another addition to the rolling stock designed to improve passenger comfort is a special car with 66 seats, two 26-inch LCDs and 16 speakers, allowing passengers to watch films throughout their journey.

PKP Intercity has been in business since 2001. At the beginning of last year, it was converted into a joint-stock company as part of preparations to float the company on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. At present, the company operates 555 trains.
