Public transport (bus and trams) in Poland


The tickets or the cards are bought in the kiosks (Ruch) and the hotels. Only the town of Warsaw has a subway, which connects the southern suburbs to the Palace of the culture.

Public transport services are usually provided by state companies which operate buses, trams and trolleybuses; sometimes also private enterprises offer bus transport. Public transport is usually well organised and relatively cheap. A single ticket costs about 2 zl (0.5€), depending on local prices. It is economical to buy daily, weekly and monthly tickets when possible.

In Warszawa (Warsaw) you may take the underground which has been built quite recently. Also trams belong to the most convenient means of communication, because they do not get stuck in traffic jams as often as buses or cars do. Tram services are popular in such cities as Warszawa (Warsaw), Krakow (Cracow), Lodz, Poznan, Wroclaw, Szczecin, Katowice Conurbation, Gorzow Wielkopolski, Trojmiasto (consisting of three cities: Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot) and in Czestochowa.

Bus transport is run by state companies, mainly PKS and PPKS; however, you may come across private transport agents. The prices of bus tickets are comparable to train tickets, or even much lower in case of private companies. Bus stations are most frequently situated in the vicinity of railway stations in the city centres.
