Longhaul coach connections in Poland

I guess this has been mentioned somewhere. Friends of mine are coming to Warsaw soon and asked me about intercity coaches in Poland. From what I know (I prefer the train myself) Polski Express does not exist anymore... Or are there any other coach companies offering nationwide connections?

Good old PKS of course still exists, but as I know not on longhaul routes?
Beats me by the way why anybody would like to spend hours on a coach, I already get travelsick before even having left Warsaw :)

PKS doesn't exist in terms of being national - but instead, it's a patchwork of independent companies all operating under the PKS fare rules. But yes, they can do long distance - there's a bus from Poznan-Przemysl for example. Connections tend to be very odd though - but that's because of the lack of a national operator.

How anyone can choose Polish buses instead of trains is impossible to understand. They will probably change their mind quickly when the see the reality (and safety features). There are many private companies driving between different cities. From Wawa you can go to many cities by bus. But there are many small companies, so it's difficult to get a good overview.

To be fair, some coaches are excellent - it is just very hit or miss as to the standard. Generally though, the large (or tourist orientated) companies are fine.
