Well, the ticket machines are mostly for tourists. Your average Varsiovian will have a long-term pass or buy tickets online (admitedly mostly the younger generation).
App I'm using to plan my public transport travels; convieniently it can also be used to buy tickets:
Mind you, tickets bought in an app need to be validated nowadays (QR code), which is a bit of a pain because they wanted to prevent abuse and made it really annoying to use (you have a limited time to do it - if you fail, you need to wait for a couple of minutes - and to the best of my knowledge this still counts as not having a valid ticket).
Witamy w Polszy :D
Mnie też się najbardziej przydaje Jakdojade - są tam rozkłady jazdy komunikacji miejskiej w dużych miastach, i pomaga w znalezieniu najlepszego dojazdu.
You should install this app to help you get around with buses and trams, although Uber is really, really cheap here. Like, it would cost you around 10-15 PLN from Piastowska to Park Oliwski. Just saying.
Złote Lwy is a beer native to Gdańsk, don't know if you can find it anywhere else. When you'll be buying Żubrówka in a shop, please, please, PLEASE make sure you're buying the original one, "green Żubrówka", because it's actually the one with bizon grass. "White Żubrówka" is just a regular wódka. And you have to drink it with an apple juice. It's a drink called Jabłecznik, which is also what we call Apple Pie in Poland.
When it comes to food, you have to go and eat in Bar Przystań in Sopot:
The best fish you can get in the whole Tricity, bought daily at dawn from local fishermen.
Możliwe, że dla Warszawy działa to mało stabilnie. Generalnie to pamiętam, że z rok temu widziałem pozycję autobusu. Uwierzyłbym, że sobie coś ubzdurałem, gdyby nie opis aplikacji na Google Play.
Don't know about the tickets, but for all public transport guidance, I also recommend the jakdojade app. (also on itunes, you apple cultist, and they also have a normal website)
You just pick a destination and it tells where to go and what bus/tram/train to board.
Hey! You should try posting in r/Poland as well.
I'm from a different part of country and I haven't been to Poznań myself so can't help you much here.
Wrocław, Kraków and Tricity are worth visiting if you have time for some train travel.
For public transport use Jak Dojade mobile app.
If you have any general questions feel free to msg me. People in r/Poland should be helpful as well.
Just to add to this:
Show up here at around 10am for freshly fried delicious packi. Its not on maps but once you're there you'll know which place it is since thats all they sell.
Get this app to easily navigate the trams and buses.
Many people will claim Praga Północ is the district to avoid after sunset, but you'll be okay as long as you stay out of dark alleys. So I say don't go there if you have the choice, but it's not that bad or dangerous.
Four non-standard things to check out:
If you plan on getting around using ZTM (urban transport authority) public transport, which is really good by the way, then you can use Google Maps or Jakdojade.pl (Android + iOS) for finding connections. Google Maps, at least within the app – not sure about the website, show actual departure time basing on the vehicle's GPS module, while Jakdojade app sells short-term tickets. I usually use GMaps for connections and Skycash for tickets, but Jakdojade may be easier to set up for a foreigner, it only requires a payment option and it accepts Google Pay. For fares go here. If you're coming for a couple days, you will probably be best off buying short-term tickets (1 day, 3 days, 1 week etc) or group tickets or weekend tickets (valid between friday night and monday morning). That depends on when you're coming. Some of the tickets can be bought within the app (Jakdojade or Skycash or mPay), but some are only available in the ticket machines, convenience stores (Relay, Inmedio, Żabka, 1minute) or even exclusively at passenger service points (the very special ones like group+weekend). As you've probably already realised, fares are divided into Zones 1 and 2. Zone 2 are little towns around Warsaw, usually nothing to see there, so you don't have to buy 1+2 tickets, Zone 1 will probably be enough. Subway, buses, light rail and trams all use common ZTM tickets I've mentioned above (as long as you see this logo you know you are on a correct mean of transport). Watch out for KM suburban trains though, they share tracks with ZTM light rail, but have separate fares and you can't ride them using ZTM time tickets (under 24h of validity) but you can if you bought a 24h+ ticket.
We also have bike-sharing systems: Veturilo and Acro; e-scooters: Hive, Bird, Lime, Citybee; mopeds: jedenślad, blinkee; cars: Traficar, Innogy Go, 4mobility, Panek.
Jakdojade is actually pretty good (polish).
I use Jakdojade Itunes Google
Jakdojade, Google Maps, or ZTM website, but I think it's most confusing, so just stick with jakdojade android or iOS app.
What do you find confusing about the schedule? I may help
