Gruby, I have any doubts about public transport in Poland:

1) Is there some BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) in project, in Polish cities?
2) Is there trolleybus routes in your country?
3) Road buses are widely used in Poland in the international and intercity connections? I know that Poland have any Eurolines (international bus lines) routes connecting Warsaw and Krakow with many European cities.

My city - Krakow is one of the most advanced cities in Poland in terms of giving priority to infrastructure solutions to urban transport. Common tram&bus traks , common bus stops built with an appropriate gauge, separated busway , the corresponding traffic lights and the organization moving - all this will enhance the efficiency of public transport in Krakow. This is while the counterweight to the failure of the transport system reveals traffic jam on the streets of the city in summit.

More information soon ....
sorry

1) no BRT in Poland, coz the authorities here are still to scared of new technologies and new solutions unfortunately
2) only 3 cities have trolleybuses: Gdynia(+Sopot), Lublin, Tychy
3) are main transportation - all cities, towns and villages are conected by bus, there are plenty of suburban bus systems, plenty of intercity and international bus companies
Most of polish towns on the main routes have bus conections to european cities. It's easier and cheaper to get the bus abroad than a train.

It's been a long time since I've been in Poland, let alone Zielona Gora.... I woudl have at least thought that Poland would have advanced more in Higher Order Public transit modes (specifically LRT) than here in Canada, even though we are starting to catch up.

I live in Toronto and you wouldn't believe how huge the Transit City project is for us.....

You call BRT a NEW TECHNOLOGY? It's rather a cheap substitute (like made in China T-shirt to the original Levi's one

You're a real bus fanatic.Compare times which can be achieved by Pendolino's class train (why do you think main train corridors are renovateted to 160-200 or 250 km/h) and bus travel times.And what do you get?
