Warsaw is launching a new service for those who fought in the Warsaw Uprising. We are introducing free transport services which will make it easier for them to move around the city. The insurgents are entitled to four taxi rides a month free-of-charge.

We have great news for the insurgents. At the beginning of November, all Warsaw insurgents will receive cards which will entitle them to free taxi rides within the Warsaw area. The cards will also be sent to insurgents who do not live in the capital city, but this will allow them to use the service during a visit to Warsaw,” said Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, Mayor of Warsaw, at an event during which the first cards were handed out. “Mrs Wanda Traczyk-Stawska will receive card No. 001 today.”

Every Warsaw insurgent will be sent a free card allowing them to use free taxi rides within Warsaw city limits.
The free taxi service is available between 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. It will be provided by WAWA Taxi. The route of a single journey should not exceed 30 kilometres. Exceeding this limit will involve additional payments.
“I hope you will not use the service too often to see a doctor, as I wish you all good health, but for the purpose of coming here, to your home at Nowolipie St.,” said Ewa Malinowska-Grupińska, Chairperson of the City Council.

The insurgents who received the cards today from the Mayor of Warsaw thanked her for this initiative and for the opening of the support home at 22 Nowolipie St. They stressed that they felt comfortable there, and that they visited it to attend interesting events addressed especially to them, and to have a warm meal.
The home is a pilot project, and as such, it is initially addressed to a group of Warsaw insurgents. The next step will involve the possibility of covering other groups of senior residents with the support.
