PKP Intercity has scheduled its new annual schedule while bringing new products to the community living in the Podkarpackie Province. It is another season in which the network of connections for Podkarpacie is developing. Upcoming years and further investments will bring improved offers of services. New timetables will increase the comfort of traveling. They will get increased, thanks to the strengthening of the PKP Intercity fleet with new cars. The cars got modernized under the most crucial investment program in the company's history. The number of IC connections to and from Rzeszów will increase from 9 to 14, and Przemyśl - from 7 to 13. All the connections from Przemyśl or Rzeszów will be in the IC or EIP category (service by Pendolino vehicles).

"We are witnessing a huge acceleration of the Polish railways. Thanks to the huge modernization program, more and more new or modernized rolling stock appear on the tracks, ensuring better travel comfort. Modern trains use modernized railway lines, offering ever-faster journeys. I am delighted that the inhabitants of Podkarpacie are beneficiaries of the development of Polish railways and that they are so eager to use the services of PKP Intercity. Meanwhile, we are not slowing down even for a moment, planning the further development of railways in the region, and striving to achieve the goal of a safe, comfortable, predictable, accessible, and ecological railway," declares the Minister of Infrastructure Andrzej Adamczyk. 

"The last few years have brought a great development of railways in Podkarpacie, which is especially pleasing. Thanks to this, the inhabitants of Przemyśl can safely and comfortably travel in Poland and abroad. Thanks to the railways, the local economy and labor market are growing. All this shows us that it is worth investing in PKP and that it will continue to do so. Our national carrier will spend many billions of zlotys on modern trains and modern infrastructure in the coming years, giving Poles better and better travel opportunities," announces MP Marek Kuchciński.

According to the new timetable, commuters traveling between Przemyśl, and Kraków will have a choice of 12 connections. It is worth mentioning that in the 2014/2015 season, there were only 6 of them from Podkarpacie to the capital of Małopolska, and in 2015/2016 schedule - 9. The year after brought a systematic development of the service offers.
