Yes our tramway network is big as for the city of that size, but we desperately need new trams. City authority ordered 30 trams which are to be delivered next Autumn, but their construction isn't modern. Now we are waiting for the new tender for 15 low floor trams.

I wish Calgary or Edmonton can renovate its metro like Warsaw. Even Warsaw have such beautiful stations but... Why our booming Calgary doesn't have them.

Warsaw could be one of the best city in Europe, if it remains a part of Germany or Austria in 1945.

I am sure it would be one of the best city in Europe if Germans (together with Austrians) didnt raze it to the ground. BTW I strongly recomend for you some history lessons - its really isnt such painful...

Warsaw has a really good looking public transport system. Some of it looks a little too old fashioned though.

There are no planned or existing stations shared by railway and subway, but in the near future there will be built 2 direct pedestrian underground links: Warszawa Srodmiescie railway station - Centrum subway station and Warszawa Gdanska railway station - Dworzec Gdanski subway station. This kind of link is also planned on Wilenska subway station which is the part of planned second line.
EDIT Violet stations on this map.

It's not the entire Warsaw public transport system, we have also huge bus network, but nobody seems to be satisfied here in Warsaw. Mainly because of the old or crowded vehicles and traffic jams.

Is this really a light rail? Looks like a usual suburb heavy rail.

First SKM train arrived to Warsaw. Train will be used on the regular service from the October. To the end of the year next 5 trains will be delivered.


Progress on the Marymont subway station construction site.

Incredible what they did to those old trains. Congrats!

About the tram network: when I visited Warsaw I noticed that much of it has its own right of way, so not sharing the same road as cars. Therefore the trams have a relatively high speed compared to, for example, Amsterdam.
