PKP Intercity, Poland's state-run passenger railway company, is stepping up its commitment to senior travelers with an increased discount on its Senior Ticket, rising from 30% to 35%. Available for purchase until the end of September, this discounted ticket can be used on all domestic trains, whether for single or sectional travel.

Seniors over 60 years of age are eligible for the discount, which extends to various types of accommodations including 1st and 2nd class seating, Comfort Zone, and even couches and sleeping places. These tickets can be purchased at ticket offices, e-IC services, and ticket machines. Senior passengers merely need a photo ID to confirm their age for the discount.

In conjunction with the Senior Ticket promotion, PKP Intercity is launching a new edition of its "We take care of good relations" campaign, targeting senior citizens. The campaign aims to highlight the joys and conveniences of rail travel for this age group and inspire more people to choose trains for their travels. Scheduled to run until September 30, the multi-channel campaign features 360 activities, including television, radio, press, digital, video, and social media promotions.

Taking accessibility seriously, PKP Intercity also aims to make its services more inclusive through the Accessibility Plus program. Coordinated by Poland's Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy, this initiative seeks to adapt public spaces and services for all citizens, including those with special needs. PKP Intercity has made strides in this direction by operating 60 COMBO wagons, which have received the "Transport without barriers" certificate from the Integration Foundation. This certification confirms that these wagons are adapted to serve not just seniors but also people with disabilities and parents traveling with children. As of July, PKP Intercity has announced a tender for the modernization of another 50 wagons to meet these inclusive standards.
