Poznań is crisscrossed by several tram routes (one at night) and bus lines (twenty at night). During the day these run from around 05:00 to 23:00 with trams and buses running approximately every 10-15 minutes. With a timetable of services both day and night and divided into week day, Saturday or Sunday and Holiday services, public transport is the most efficient means of getting around the city. Timetables can be viewed by the JakDojade application: http://poznan.jakdojade.pl.
You can use JakDojade on both desktop computer and mobile devices. We recommend using JakDojade whenever planning your journey with public transportation.
Tickets in Poznań are timed. The cheapest option is 3 PLN for 10 minutes - which might get you 3 or 4 stops. A 40-min ticket for 4.60 PLN is the safer bet. Single Proximity Cards (Papierowa Karta Jednorazowa) must be validated in the reader at the entrance to the vehicle. If you plan on traveling often, you may want to consider a 24h or 48h ticket.
Tickets are bought from automated machines found on most (specially marked) buses and trams as well as at most transport stops.
The tram stops which are closest to the conference venue (Poznan University of Technology, Campus Piotrowo) are Politechnika (trams 5, 13, 16, and 20) and Baraniaka (trams 3, 4, 6, 11, 16, and 27).
The stops closest to the Old Market Square are Wrocławska, Małe Garbary, and Plac Wielkopolski. For the Railway Station, go to Poznań Główny or Dworzec Zachodni.
There are bus stops right in front of the passenger terminal and in its close vicinity:
Public transport tickets are available at the newspaper stands both in the arrival hall (in T3 terminal) and in the departure hall (in T2 terminal), as well as in the ticket booth located at the bus stop in front of the departure hall. In all L busses and in some units of line 59, ticket vending machines are available. Stickers at the bus entrance inform about a possibility of an on-board ticket purchase.
The cheap, safe and comfortable way to order a taxi is to use one of taxi corporations. This guarantees honest prices and short waiting periods. All corporations offer free-of-charge arrival at the customer's location.
Uber is also available in Poznań and is usually a little bit cheaper than taxis for day courses and much cheaper for night courses.
