Public Transport

Public Transport
Poznań is criss-crossed by 19 tram routes (of which one runs at night), and 58 bus lines (20 at night). During the day these run from around 05:00 to 23:00 with trams and buses running approximately every ten minutes.

When buying a ticket travellers are presented with a galaxy of options, and until the end of the year your timed 
tickets are extended due to repair work in the city; that 
means from Mon-Fri 06:00 - 19:00, and on Sat 08:00 - 
14:00 a 15-minute ticket will be current for 25 minutes 
and a 30-minute ticket will be current for 45 minutes.

Children under five and adults over 70 travel for free, and discounts are available for foreign students under age 26 in possession of an ISIC card. Tickets can be purchased from the newsagent kiosks around town, just ask for a ‘bilet’.

Our advice if you are here for a few days is to pick up the Poznan City Card which gives you free unlimited use of the public transport system as part of the price. It’ll save an awful lot of headaches.

It is extremely important that you remember to validate your ticket by punching it in the ‘kasowniks’ found by the bus/tram exit as soon as you board. If you don’t have a valid ticket and find yourself nicked by a plain clothes inspector you’ll be fined 140zł on the spot as well as the cost of the ticket you didn’t purchase/validate. Many don’t look very official so you are within your rights to ask for their ID. You can opt to pay within seven days (in which case the fine rises to 196zł), or within 14 days (280zł).
