Wrocław's transport system now runs on a modern 'Urban Card' automated system, which has largely replaced the purchase of individual tickets for locals. Tourists, however, should have no trouble using the English option on the ticket machines now stationed at most transit stops and on all trams and buses. Note, however, that while ticket machines at transit stops accept coins and cash, those on board trams and buses only take plastic.
A single fare ticket is 3zł, though note that night buses cost 3.20zł. 24-hr (11/5.50zł), 48-hr (20/10zł) and 72-hr (26/13zł) tickets good for all public transport in and around the city are also available and might be clever if you plan on riding often. ISIC or other non-Polish student ID is valid for a significant student discount, but you must carry your ID.
Most importantly, remember that tickets are not valid until you stamp them once inside the tram or bus. If you're caught without a properly punched ticket, you'll owe the city of Wroclaw 120zł, or 150zł if they don't get the money within seven days, plus the price of the original ticket.
Schedules posted at each stop tend to be right on the money. 'W dni robocze' means Monday through Friday and 'w dni wolne' means Saturday and Sunday. For route planning, check out the super helpful website: www.wroclaw.jakdojade.pl
