Last year (2016), a record-breaking number of over 1,136 bn passenger-journeys were made in Warsaw on trams, buses, underground trains, and the Fast Urban Railway! This is over 5 million more than in 2015.

More and more people are using Warsaw’s public transport system. In 2015 the estimated number of journeys made on the city’s public transport (calculated by the Public Transport Authority on the basis of the number of tickets sold) amounted to 1,131,357,900. In 2016 it was as many as 1,136,503,549. This is over 5 million more than in the preceding year.

I am glad that the upward trend is still continuing. This shows that our actions – the exchange of vehicles and infrastructural investments – are bringing the intended result and public communication is the most popular means of transport,” says Renata Kaznowska, Deputy Mayor of Warsaw.

According to the 2015 Warsaw Traffic Study, in a day Warsaw residents make around 3.35 million journeys; 56.9% of all journeys which are not made on foot are on the city’s public transport.
