No, I think Szczecin has some of the worst trams. You'll find some of these old trams in a lot of cities though.

Why is this topic so special that it's only limited to those that live in Warsaw. A lot of us have traveled there. Our opinion doesn't matter. Pfff with YOUR thread :P

Exactly. I'm in Warsaw every month, but you don't hear me saying "Poles aren't allowed to comment on how rubbish London transport is".

Everyone complains about their city's public transport anyway, so this thread is a bit of a waste of space really. Tell us something we don't know. :p

I didnt mind the transport at all, apart from the odd drunk at the bus or tram stops who hassled me and I didnt have a clue what they were saying.

I'm Polish, so you can either shove your bilet tygodniowy miejski where the sun don't shine, or you can stop the lame trolling.

Or preferably both.

Warsaw punk

Never liked punk whatever the city of origin but i suppose it fits. Safety pins and ghetto blasters. Maximum annoyance and even better captive audiences. The ultimate mobile disco. :)

edit: clumbsy spelling

I ride the tram every day (and have yet to buy a ticket). Don't see anything wrong with them, nor the buses. Buses are usually punctual but they have an odd habit of coming on time or not coming at all.

im here for the month and its been two weeks today and ive no complaints against the trams and the buses are regular and timely.

I prefere the trams as they are less crowded. the fact that there is alot of renovation to the roads and tram system will make it harder to bare at present but its fine. Nothing worth complaining about in the grand scheme of things. the worst complaint is that they are crowded and thats hardly worth mentioning.

the metro is unfortunately wide enough (ie more routes) like a route from the airport to centrum would have made so much sense but its only since the mid 1990's it was built so there is plenty of time and EU money yet to come.

been here for a year - no complaints. get a book to read on the bus, buy a car (for which you would not find any parking in the centre) or walk! Go visit countries in southern hemisphere before you moan about transport in europe :)

been here for a year

how long have you been in johannesburg?

Strange how quiet you've become.
Strange how you tell people not living in warsaw that they can't answer any questions about the public transport in warsaw
And yet you have - in the same breath - the nerve to insult a country that you know nothing about?
Also strange - if you look at the other topics that you started - how there is nothing positive in anything you say?
Sad, my friend, sad.

What is the best ticket to buy if you are for 1 year in Warsaw and travel at average once a day? Single ticket is 2.4 Zloty (this is only a one way ticket - valid in metro, bus and tram). A day ticket is 7.2 Zloty (so already pays off if you take the public transport 3 times in one day).

I also read something about 30 day tickets and 90 day tickets, but I don't know how much they cost and about how they work (if they can only be bought at the beginning of the month and if they are valid everywhere and always). Can someone help me/us out?

Thanks!

Far from it. Public transport here is far far better than London or Southampton. It’s not as good as Geneva but then they spend a shedload of cash on theirs.

the metro is unfortunately wide enough (ie more routes) like a route from the airport to centrum would have made so much sense but its only since the mid 1990's it was built so there is plenty of time and EU money yet to come.

Actually they started it in the early 1980s (if you don’t count work done in the 1950s).

I also read something about 30 day tickets and 90 day tickets, but I don't know how much they cost and about how they work (if they can only be bought at the beginning of the month and if they are valid everywhere and always). Can someone help me/us out?

The best tickets to get are the 30 day tickets. For them you need a Warszawska karta miejska. I got mine from the ZTM main office on the corner of pl Bankowy and Saski Park. Then you just reload them at various Ruch kiosks or the automatic machines at Metro stations (when they are working). The 90-day cards are slightly cheaper (166zl, the 30-day cards are 66zl) but if you lose one you lose more.
