PR assumed responsibility for local and regional passenger transport but also launched a special type of national, inter-regional train service. Consequently, PR has become the largest passenger railway operator in Poland, with roughly 300,000 customers daily using approximately 2,700 trains. As of 2011, PR has nearly 13,000 employees.  http://www.przewozyregionalne.pl/  http://www.pkp.pl/
