PKP Introduce Co-working Carriages On Selected Trains

PKP Intercity have introduced a new co-working carriage to some trains on selected routes, including Wrocław-Warsaw.

Polish Rail have inherited the new carriages as a result of cooperation with IdeaBank, who are presumably happy to fund the project in exchange for the opportunity to promote their brand.

The so called "IdeaHub" carriage will be available on selected services running between Warsaw and three other major Polish cities: Wrocław, Poznan and Kraków.

Anyone with a valid ticket for the train can use the special co-working carriage, which is equipped with a work-table, sockets for charging phones and laptops, a scanner, printer and even a tv monitor for presentations. However, IdeaBank customers are to be given priority when it comes to securing a seat.

According to the picture provided by IdeaBank, the carriage will also have Wi-Fi, although this information was curiously missing in PKP's official press release. On top of that, passengers in the co-working wagon can kick back on the carriage's couch with a coffee while reading a selection of daily newspapers.

IdeaBank's own research found that a significant amount of Polish businesses do business in different regions of the country, and the bank are hoping the new venture will allow them to attract new customers.
