Public Transport in Poznań
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.
During the registration to the conference you will receive a badge that will serve as a 4-day ticket (Sunday-Wednesday) for public transport in Poznań. If you need to use public transport before the registration or you are planning to stay in Poznań after the conference, bear in mind that tickets 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 travelling 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 (marked with B at the map below).

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.
