PolskiBus
by Ssonia about 5 years ago

If you'd like to try budget traveling by bus, choose PolskiBus. It's budget, comfortable, with wi-fi, electrical outlet, TV and so on. What can be better then enjoying landscapes, sitting in comfort and traveling abroad in a very short time.
You order tickets online and don't need to print them. Just show the ticket on your smartphone/tablet to a driver and have a great bus-trip!

Discounts for foreigners in Poland
by Ssonia about 5 years ago

If you are under 26 and not the EU citizen you can get a special 26% discount for traveling by train. But you should have personal ID (or any other document) with your date of birth. If you bought usual ticket you can buy the student's one from the controller. Don't worry, you'll take your money back at the closest ticket desk.
