POLREGIO is the new brand of Przewozy Regionalne, the biggest Polish passenger rail carrier. It is related to changes that have taken place and will take place in our company. Formal name of the company, used in court registers, acts and corporate documentation, will not change.
Most of our connections are regional and agglomeration trains. They meet the transport needs of residents of most provinces in Poland. With POLREGIO you can get to your work, at the University, to school, doctor, shopping, office or to your family or friends. PolRegio also offers trains connecting neighbouring regions, which are attractive price alternative for other bus or rail carriers. Together with foreign partners we also cross-border trains to Belarus, Czech, Lithuania and Germany.
*REGIO – regional and agglomeration trains running within one province and between neighbouring regions, most of them stop at every station, only some of them are “speeded up” (stop at main stations only)
*interREGIO – fast train running between Łódź – Warsaw stops only at selected stations.
Timetable is set according to provincial government order. In the process of planning connections and determining the train frequency, organizers take into account financial abilities, citizens opinions and suggestions and technical and organization conditions. Together with provincial government we seek to create such a timetable, that will satisfy local citizen needs. Marshal office decides on which routes our train run, and how often.

Our timetable is set to enable our passengers travel with changes on main stations. However in rail traffic, like on roads, sometimes difficulties happen and not always a train can wait for the delayed one. If your train is delayed immediately report it to the conductor on which station you want to make a change. Train staff will contact the traffic controller and inform you about possibilities to continue your trip.
Some of our vehicles and objects of railway infrastructure (stations, bus stops) are fully accessible to service passengers with limited mobility. However sometimes at some parts of your journey you will need help of our staff. We ask you to inform us earlier that you plan your journey on a given route.
