The acquisition of PESA's modern EMUs, type 61WE model REGIO 160, is a part of the provincial government's broader investment program aimed at enhancing rail services across the region.
The contract includes the delivery of the vehicles, along with servicing and staff training, set to be completed by 2026 at the latest. Moreover, the initiative includes plans for a new maintenance and repair base in Radom to support the new fleet.
The new trains will serve vital connections within the Warsaw agglomeration and extend to the Masovian, Łódź, Lublin, and Świętokrzyskie voivodeships, including new and existing lines such as Radom–Drzewica and Radom–Warsaw among others.
Last year, Koleje Mazowieckie reported a significant increase in ridership, serving over 59 million passengers. This new contract with PESA is part of Koleje Mazowieckie's ongoing efforts to modernize its fleet, improve service quality, and meet the transportation needs of the Masovian community.
