Warsaw public transport is not so bad at all

I hereby promised myself not to react anymore on any posting about Jews/Freemasons/Serbs/Germans. It gets too heavy on my system.Besides Summer is coming :) And this Forum is also about other stuff :)

I was taking today the metro (got a station in my street 100 metres from home) and I was thinking that despite lots of people complaining, Warsaw public transport is not so bad at all.

For example "Karta Miejska" is a great invention and great value at barely 15 Euro per month.
Almost everywhere in Warsaw you get with max one change. OK Summer is here and so the Smelly People are attacking. Still the metro is running during the weekend also during the night (saving us expensive taxi fares getting back home after a party) and more and more new trams are put into service.

Do you think Jews/Freemasons/Serbs/Germans use the metro in Warsaw as well? I think Jews are very rich, so they take taxis; Freemasons do not move at all - they only conspire in their dens; don't know about Serbs; Germans prefer trams and buses.

I was thinking my posting was about the eventual blessings of Warsaw public transport :)

I wonder how many more decades it will take to build a second line; by which time, many Asian cities will be refurbishing their recently-built multi-line networks ;)

I'm sure it will take many decades to achieve that. As you probably know, Jews and Freemasons conspire against it all the time, Germans do not send enough of Riechseuros to finance it, and Serbs... what the hell Serbs are doing to slow it down?

The thing here in Poland are very often the absurd (or rather lack of) planning regulations. For example - the second metro line. Somewhere (I forgot the street name) the line new line has to cross an Army telecoms cable. Gosh the noise they were making about this. You would think old Osama was going attack the Polish military. And they have only PIS-financed Rosomaks to defend themselves with :) God knows when that will be solved :)

Second example. It seems one pensioner is holding up the construction of the entire South Warsaw Ringroad. He wants a few groszy more for his two rooms. Rejected few offers from the city council until now. In my native Belgium they would evict him, pay him the market price for his rooms and get on with it.

In all cities in the world people complain about the public transport system.

Most cities in PL have rather good public transport. And cheap.

I'm not a fan of the systems in smaller towns - they tend to be overpriced for what they are. For instance - a monthly ticket costs the same price in Gorzów Wlkp. as it does in Poznań. I'm also not a huge fan of the systems in £ódź and Wrocław - but Poznan, Warsaw and Krakow all have fantastic systems.

The only thing I am not familiar with are the coaches connecting the main cities. Are they value for money (I am sure somewhere there is a thread about it but I am plain lazy :) )

Only if you could promise the rest of us the same.

Do you enjoy unheated trams in -20C temperatures with all doors opening whether necessary or not at every stop? Most of us don't.

trains are a lot better then buses although sometimes buses are all one has.. so they'll work too.

What, don't you have selective door opening in Warsaw?

There are still many of the old type trams. They are replacing them but, man, my feet are freezing when I think about February. The new trams are choice, and friendly for people with disabilities. It's getting better.
