Passengers returning to public transport services

The Warsaw Public Transport is functioning normally. Over 1400 buses, 400 trams, Metro and Fast City Rail vehicles reach the streets of Warsaw each day. Our vehicles arrive on time. We also care about cleanliness, as they are regularly cleaned and disinfected.

We are monitoring the situation in public transport on an ongoing basis, counting passengers, and we are responding to the passengers’ needs, for example the timetables of buses 179, 186, 190 and 340 were modified so as to begin the morning rush hour earlier, and send out buses more frequently. Where necessary, we are sending out articulated buses - we have done so on line 707.

The number of passengers using Warsaw Public Transport services has reduced significantly. There are about 20% of passengers on buses and about 14% on the Metro. The number of tickets sold decreased by over a half in March, in relation to the sales data for the same month last year. The number of passengers began increasing After Easter. On Friday 17 April, Metro recorded the highest number of passengers (80 628) since 24 March, and the number of tickets sold both on Tuesday (18 723) and on Wednesday (16 971) was the  highest since 16 March.

Some passengers cancelled the suspension of their term tickets. Waiving restrictions related to moving around for leisure purposes, and the opening of parks, forests and boulevards will probably contribute to the further increase in the number of passengers. Let us remind that the maximum number of passengers in means of public transport cannot exceed a half of the number of seats. Information on the maximum number of passengers is therefore placed on the door of every vehicle. So far, only a few instances of exceeding the number were reported. Our passengers understand the situation and leave the bus, or resign from getting in, if they see that it is overcrowded.
