Intercity trains are trains that are utilized within cities and provide fast train services with limited stops over long distances. These trains are categorized into three types; intercity, express, regional.
- Intercity: It uses high speed trains to connect cities while bypassing all intermediate stops thus linking major population hubs in the shortest time possible.
- Express: These trains stop at intermediate stations between cities, providing services for a larger urban population.
- Regional Trains: These trains stop at intermediate stations and provide services to a smaller population. Regional trains connect towns and cities, serving smaller urban and rural communities, to meet local demand in less accessible areas.
- Higher Speed Trains: These are special trains modified for higher speeds than conventional trains but not as high as the high speed trains. These services are provided after modification of the conventional rail infrastructure to support trains that can safely operate at higher speeds.
