Polish local transport is on a fairly well developed, with an extensive network of buses and trams (and subway in Warsaw), including night transport. Each city has a different system of ticket fares, so the best solution is to get familiar with the regulations on official public transport websites (see below). You are responsible to validate your ticket once you get on the bus or tram – if you don’t, you may get a fine from a ticket inspector (inspections happen rarely, but tend to be quite unpleasant, especially for people who do not speak Polish). A useful website for planning a journey with public transport is www.jakdojade.pl.
