Trams, buses, commuter trains or even a cable car – public transport in Wroclaw is an elaborate, efficient and passenger-friendly system.
In Wroclaw, over 20 tram lines operate every day, and buses serve around 50 routes.
The first daily buses and trams start running after 4 a.m., and the last ones leave the routes about midnight.
At night, there are thirteen bus lines that run from the most distant city districts through the centre and the Aquapark areas. Attention: night bus service is not very frequent – buses arrive every hour on the average.
In Wroclaw, there are two ticket systems: single fares and a system of time fares. There are also long-term tickets (season tickets).
Public transport tickets can be bought at the newsagent’s and in ticket machines near bus/tram stops. You can pay for them in cash (coins and notes) or by card.

Tickets are also available in all public transport vehicles, but you can buy them there only by card, via phone application or online.
Not only buses and trams
From the city centre, you can get to distant city districts (Leśnica, Pracze Odrzańskie, Psie Pole, Brochów) by railbus. It is a fast and convenient means of transport.

Polinka – a cable car on the Oder
One of Wroclaw’s attractions is Polinka – a cable car operating on the Oder. It takes only three minutes to reach the other side of the river by cable car. It is a unique passage on the walking route from Hydropolis to the Zoo. You can buy a ticket in a ticket machine on stations on both sides of the Oder.
The cable car is open from 7:00 a.m. till 6:00 p.m. from Monday to Friday and from 11:00 a.m. till 6:00 p.m. from Saturday to Sunday.
A valid MPK ticket is sufficient to travel by passenger trains between all stations in Wroclaw without extra fares.
