How to use public transport in Poznań?

The Poznań public transport with its network, timetables and tariff is unique in Poland. Trams are the core of the system - most of lines go with a frequency of 10 minutes. Bus lines play a complementary role to the tram network. This solution encourage passengers to change, offering high frequency connections with changes, instead of low frequency direct connections. It also makes the network less extensive and complicated to passengers.

Tariff and tickets

Tickets on PEKA CARD

PEKA (Poznań Electronic Agglomeration Card) is a modern, multifunctional, contactless city card used mainly as the only carrier of long-term tickets (season-tickets) and the carrier of the so-called tPurse (transportPurse) from which a passenger can pay for the number of stops on her/his journey (regardless of the time of the journey).

Long-term tickets

Long-term tickets (season tickets) can be bought on the personalized PEKA CARD and are valid in any chosen area (check Zones) and for the selected number of days – from 14 to 366 (network ticket) and from 14 to 90 days (route ticket). Using a long-term ticket, the passenger doesn’t have to put PEKA CARD to the card-reader when enters and exits the tram or bus. Long-time tickets (season tickets) are available at Customer Service Points, Ticket Sale Points, via the Internet (on www.peka.poznan.pl) or in the new Ticket Machines.

 tPurse

The PEKA card also offers a function of the tPurse - an account designed for paying for occasional fares in public transport or paying for parking a vehicle in the Poznan Parking Zone. The fare depends on the number of stops travelled. Remember! To start the journey paid for with the tPurse the passenger must have funds for at least one-stop journey (0.60 zł standard price). The passenger can start another journey paying from the tPurse when tops up tPurse account.

Watch a short movie with basic information: tPURSE

If You need information about special tickets and reduced prices of public transport organised by ZTM Poznań - watch this short movie: REDUCED AND SPECIAL FARES

Remember! If the total costs of journeys made during one day exceed the value of a 24-hour ticket (13.6 zł - the standard price), no more funds will be taken from the tPurse account – the passenger will travel for free until the end of the day.

When a passenger uses the tPurse to pay for the journey and changes the line numer within 20 minutes (the time is counted from a moment the passenger puts the PEKA Card to a card reader in the vehicle passenger gets out and another vehicle the passenger gets in), the fare for the stops travelled is counted as for one journey. It means that the fare is not counted as if it was for the first stop but if it was the next stop. The maximum number of changes allowed during one journey is 3. Remember to put the PEKA CARD to the card-reader every time when you get on and get off the vehicles!

Important additional information about how to use tickets and pay for journeys from tPurse on the PEKA CARD within the local public transport organized by ZTM Poznań

* a 24-hour ticket validated between 8:00 p.m. or later on Friday and 12:00 a.m. on Saturday entitles a passenger to travel up to 12:00 a.m. on Sunday
