60% of all trams in Warsaw will be low floor by 2015. Over 265 new trams have either been delivered or contracted and will be delieved in 2014/2015.

I wonder if Warsaw now has the most modern tram fleet (already 100% of all Warsaw buses are low floor) in Central and Eastern Europe.

Most probably they will be back in service in February. At least that's the last news from Metro Warszawskie.

Of course not . Think about Vienna - it is also central Europe.

In Vienna they still have high floor trams - I don't know however how big is their share in general number of trams. Will they be replaced by 2015? They seemed to be in pretty good condition

Have the new Siemens Inspiro metro trains been put back into service on Warsaw's metro yet after the fire?

I was in Warsaw today and I've seen no sign of Siemens return. All metro got now is Metrovagonmash and Alstom. But I've noticed interesting - some of Russian trains were out of service, the passengers were not allowed to enter. Inside the trains - only technicians. What does it mean?

Test runs, or maybe they were pulling trains to the sidings.

No. As far as I know the investigation hasn't finished yet

Hi everybody,

I'm in Warsaw right now for business and I am wondering why, in a radius of only 200 m, there are THREE underground stations (Centralna, Srodmiesce, Metro-Centrum) each independent from the others and connected only through ...surface paths full of snow?

I realize they are two different questions... why Centralna and Srodmiesce are separate, and why the metro does not pass right under one of the two rail stations?

Can somebody tell me more about the transportation history of this part of the city? Thank you in advance

Basically Centralna has nothing to do with Warsaw public transport system - it serves long distance trains. Śródmieście is for suburban trains (WKD, SKM, KM) and Metro Centrum is for typical undeground line - Metro. Why aren't they connected? Unfortunetaly I don't know Actually Śródmieście and Centralna are connected, however this link is marked quite poorly so I assume lot of people don't know about it.

Just like Piotrek said, Centralna and Śródmieście are connected to each other.

There's been a plan to connect Metro Centrum and Śródmieście since the building of Metro Centrum since the 90s. As far as I know they couldn't make it because PKP (owner of Śródmieście) was (and is) very difficult to deal with.

If you have any further questions, just ask.
