The transport in Poland involves air traffic, waterways, roads and railroads. As a country located at the 'cross-roads' of Europe, Poland, with its developed economy is a nation with a large and increasingly modern network of transport infrastructure. Most Polish cities have well-developed networks of public transport. Depending on the city, they include buses, trams, trolleybuses, trains, and underground trains as its shown in Poland transports map. It is usually a good idea to buy a long term ticket, as it is hard to avoid public transport. Urban transport represents the major part of passenger transport in Poland in terms of passenger numbers. It exists in about 260 cities and municipalities inhabited by 17 million people. Urban transport enterprises carry in the region of 3.7 billion passengers annually, which represents approximately 80% of the total number of passengers in the public transport sector.
Recent years in the urban transport sector in Poland were characterised by large investment projects and purchases of bus fleets and tram rolling stock. However, the overall number of passengers decreased slightly, which is in contrast with high funds allocated annually for transport investments. As it turns out, they do not guarantee a systematic increase in passenger numbers in the country. Adam Karolak, President of the Chamber of Urban Transport (IGKM) describes the situation of public transport in Poland, emphasising the role of EU funds and organisational activities that can attract new passengers as its mentioned in Poland transports map. In the large cities in Poland the public transportation system is well developed. Traveling around a city is easily done using buses or trams or metro line (in Warsaw only).
