Przewozy Regionalne (przewozy regionalne means regional transport in Polish), formerly PKP Przewozy Regionalne, is a train operator in Poland, responsible for local and interregional passenger transportation. Each day it runs approximately 3,000 regional trains. During 2002 it carried 215 million passengers.

The company was founded after dividing the Polskie Koleje Państwowe national rail operator into several companies to meet European Union requirements.

Train categories[edit]

An ED59 unit in Skierniewice. This unit currently services InterRegio trains between Warsaw and Łódź
A typical InterRegio carriage
An SA133 unit as the Balice Ekspres train to Kraków International Airport
REGIO (R)
local passenger train, 2nd class only, stops (usually) at all stations
REGIOplus
semi-fast local passenger train, 2nd class only, stops at a limited number of stations, same fare as Regio
interREGIO (IR)
low-cost inter-regional fast train, 2nd class only, stops at medium and major stations only
REGIOekspres (RE)
fast trains on international routes; stop at major stations only; 1st and 2nd class, higher standard than IR; currently only on the routes: Dresden Hbf - Wrocław Główny and Frankfurt (Oder)-Poznań (both operated by DB Regio on the German part of the route as RegionalExpress)

There is also a special train service called Balice Ekspres, connecting the John Paul II International Airport Kraków-Balice with Kraków Main railway station with its own fare.

For domestic routes IR and RE trains share the same fare for the 2nd class (meaning you can board an RE train with an IR ticket and vice versa). With the exception of the two above-mentioned RegioEkspres trains, there is no reservation in any of the Przewozy Regionalne trains.

Until December 1, 2008 the company also used to run other 300 interregional and international fast trains (pociąg pospieszny), but per the government's decision, the interregional and international fast trains were transferred to its then-sister company, PKP Intercity S.A. and rebranded to "Tanie Linie Kolejowe".

Ownership[edit]

Until December 22, 2008 Przewozy Regionalne was a wholly owned subsidiary of the PKP Group, after that date all of its shares have been transferred to the 16 regional governments. Thus, the company is no longer part of the PKP Group and on interregional routes its InterRegio trains are competing with PKP Intercity TLK trains.

On December 8, 2009 it finally changed its name from PKP Przewozy Regionalne to Przewozy Regionalne.
