We have 2 tourist bus lines in Warsaw!
The 100 is the newest one- it`s a double decker!!! It runs on the weekends and leavs from the Castle Square and the Lazienki Park. It leaves both places at 9am, 10am, 11am, 12 am, 1pm, 2pm, 3 pm, 4 pm and 5pm. The route is about 50 minutes and it takes you to all the important places- it`s a really nice and enjoyable ride around the city!
The 180 is the other tourist line. It leaves from the Powazki Cementary- the oldest one in Warsaw- and goes through the city all the way to the Wilanow Palace. You can see many important places as well, such as the Castle Square, Nowy Swiat, Krakowskie Przedmiescie and it goes all the way to the Palace, so there you go- another important sight-seeing spot! And the most important thing- it runs daily!
Enjoy your ride!
The only scheduled public transportation to and from Warsaw's (Okecie) F. Chopin Airport are regular local buses. Tickets must be purchased before boarding and are available at all Ruch kiosks around town. Once on board you'll need to 'cancel' your ticket using the machines provided.
A rather stange Polish requirement is the need to purchase additional tickets for baggage. I'm not sure if this is enforced as I have never had my ticket checked in Warsaw.
The bus lines have numbers from 100, as well as letters. Busses with 100's numbers belong normal lines, those operate all days and stop at all the stops along the route. Vehicles with numbers greater than 300 operate during business hours. 400's and 500's are faster lines, these operate almost daily, move faster around, because they don't stop at every single stop along their route. The busses with letter are the fast lines. They have only few stops along their routes. The other category are the night busses marked with 600's. They operate in the night along main streets of Warsaw and all have one stop close to the Palace of Culture and Science, so the passenger can easily change the line. Upon entering the bus you should punch your ticket. The ticket punch is usually located next to a window.
When it comes to taking the bus, you should realize that they are kind of slow. So, if you have a choice between a bus, a tram, or the subway make the bus your last pick.
We got a Eurolines bus from Vilnius to Warsaw, which took about 13 hours on account of the bus drivers stopping every so often for a cigarette. Border crossing was the longest I've ever had to experience. Depending on the number of passengers, Eurolines could easily take you to Warsaw in a mini-van!
No Direct flights from Warsaw to Dublin, we had to change in Copenhagen. Sinead & I on airport coffee
Warsaw is huge, so you will need to use the local bus/tram network.
International and domestic buses usually go to Dworzec Zachodni (western station). They have also the only countrywide information about bus schedules, which can be printed and handed in. The information about international buses can be found there as well as in Saturday edition of 'Gazeta Wyborcza' - leading daily provides schedules, prices and contact of ticket offices of different operators.
Some buses - mostly from Eastern and South Eastern Poland come to Stadion Station. This, almost hidden by the great flea market place is accessible by trams # 7, 8, 12 and 25 from the centre.
Buses of the company called 'Polski Express' stop at the airport and the bus stop on Al. Jana Pawla II, near the Holiday Inn hotel just close to the Central Railway station.
Since April, there is a new scenic bus route for tourists in Warsaw. Bus # 100 runs every hour during daytime, starting at Plac Zamkowy (Castle Square) and going to Lazienki Park, the former summer residence of the Polish kings. It´s not taking the direct route, however, criss-crossing the Vistula river, taking a detour to the former Jewish neighborhood with the monument of the Ghetto rising and driving along some of the back streets in the embassy area.
Since last year, there is already another tourist route on bus # 180, which runs about every 15 minutes. It takes you from the baroque castle and Park of Wilanow to Powazki cemetary, also along the so-calles 'Royal Trakt' Lazienki-Plac Zamkowy
In Warsaw is one touristic bus line - no 180. Taking it is a very good way of doing quick sightseeing because they go through almost whole city.
For public transportation to Warsaw airport, one may take Bus # 175 or Bus # 188.
Both buses stop conveniently near the boarding Terminals at the Airport.
