The systems approach to providing intercity rail systems focuses on turnkey applications. This involves design, engineering and integration of all the electrical and mechanical components of the entire system and coordination of the infrastructure work with vehicles and sub-systems.

Typically, intercity trains provide express train passenger service and covers longer distances than commuter trains, at speeds of 160 km/h (100 mph) and more.

Some characteristics of intercity train service include fewer stations along the alignment when compared to urban systems, longer dwells in stations, baggage racks, and generally, fewer doors on the trains.
