Starting 1st September, PKP InterCity has cut 10% of its long-distance services. Most of the slashed trains are pospieszny (semi-fast) trains which PKP IC had taken over earlier this year from PKP Przewozy Regionalne.

Many trains have been cut back and no longer run the full distance forcing passengers to change trains or take a bus for part of their journey. Other trains only run on one or two days a week. Slupsk and Rybnik have lost their direct services to Poznan, Katowice and Gdansk. Lodz has lost its direct train from Szczecin as well as trains to Czestochowa and Cracow. While Zamosc, with 66,600 inhabitants and a UNESCO world heritage site has lost all its rail passenger services.

    Is it just me, or does it seem like the plan all along was for InterCity to drop as many pospieszny services as they could get away with? I don’t believe all the tales about how InterRegio is hurting their business – did InterCity really want to keep paying for unprofitable services, such as those between Jelenia Gora and Wroclaw? I don’t think so.

    Incidentally, it seems that PKP PR have pulled InterRegio services between Poznan and Wroclaw – I can’t find any information online, but they’ve vanished from the timetable somewhat inexplicably.
