Travel in Warsaw
Due to numerous construction works in the city center the traffic is high during the day. That is why we recommend you to travel by metro or by tram within the city. Travelling by bus is usually not convenient.
Public transport tickets can be purchased at each metro station. Most trams do not have vending machines, but you may buy tickets in newspaper kiosks. Tickets are valid in all communication means and include single ride tickets and temporary tickets (20 minutes, 40 minutes, 1 day, 3 days, 1 week).
