Travelling around Warsaw is very convenient and easy – public transport works 24/7 and the trasportation system is well developed. Thanks to the mobile applications and descriptions of rutes at every stop, your chances of getting lost are very low.
If you look for the information about public buses, trams, metro or quick city train (SKM), you can check it on the Jakdojade website (available in English). You can also download the free Jakdojade mobile app. It’s very easy to use: just type the address of your departure and destination points and get directions with the quickest connections and a detailed schedule.
If you use public transport frequently, it is very convenient to get monthly ticket. As a student, you are entitled to a 50% discount on transportation fares (once you receive your student ID).

Cycling is a hugely popular way of moving around Warsaw. More and more cycle lanes are being opened around the city, which makes this means of transport increasingly convenient. Warsaw has also introduced the ‘Veturilo’ public bike system.
In order to rent a bicycle, first register on the website: https://veturilo.waw.pl/en/ For registration, you need a minimum deposit (PLN 10 – activation fee and at least PLN 10 for services) and your mobile telephone number. After the online registration process, you can take bicycles from any self-service rental station and return them at any station. The map of rental stations location is here: https://veturilo.waw.pl/en/station-map/
The first 20 minutes of usage is free of charge. The fee for each following hour grows gradually, however, you can ride a bike for 1 hour for just PLN 2.
