PKP Intercity has announced several changes to its annual timetable that will take effect from March 12, 2023. The changes will remain in effect until June 10 and will affect dozens of trains travelling to and from the capital, due to ongoing investment works at the Warsaw Railway Junction.

PKP Intercity is introducing a new metastation function in its app and online ticket sales system. This feature will allow passengers to enter only the name of the place where their journey begins and ends instead of the exact station name, saving them time and effort. The system will show all trains departing from various stations in the capital, making it easier to plan and book a trip. The rail company is also launching new commercial stops in Warsaw during the modernisation works. Selected trains will travel along the Warsaw ring line and stop at Warszawa Młynów station, providing passengers with a convenient connection to the M2 underground line, which will enable them to quickly reach the city centre and the right-bank part of Warsaw. Additionally, there will be a stop at platform No. 9 of Warsaw West, making it easier for passengers to transfer to other trains running through Warsaw West in both directions.

From March 12, PKP Intercity will launch an EIP train to connect Katowice with Tricity, stopping en route at Sosnowiec, Warsaw, and Malbork. This will be the 14th connection that will link Warsaw with Tricity. The rail company is also launching the IC Kinga train, which will be available from May this year and will complete the network of connections between Warsaw and Krakow, ensuring the cyclical nature of trains on this route. The service will run daily, with stops in Radom and Kielce, among others, along the way.

PKP Intercity advises passengers to carefully check connections to and from Warsaw during the modernisation works. Due to these works, more than 110 trains will be diverted via the Warszawa Gdańska station, which has been prepared to receive a greater number of passengers. However, some trains will run in a shortened connection to and from Warsaw Central or Warsaw East. The revised timetable also takes into account the end of modernisation works on railway line No. 358, where train traffic will be restored on the Poznań - Zielona Góra - Poznań section, and the connection between the cities will operate without substitute bus services.

PKP Intercity is committed to providing comprehensive information to travellers. Tickets can be purchased at ticket offices throughout the country, customer service centres at major stations, ticket vending machines, and online at or via the PKP Intercity app. Passengers can also buy tickets through the KOLEO mobile application, the website, the mPay application, and the e-podróżnik service. Mobile informers will be available on March 12 and 13 at railway stations in the biggest Polish cities, providing passengers with information to determine convenient transfers, find an appropriate platform, and provide any information helpful during their journey.
