Right, I have missed that. Anyway, it was the only one until now opened after a big "wave" in the end of the 19. and beginning of the 20. century. The trams in Olsztyn were existing before between 1907 and 1965.

What else is here interesting, it's actually the second tram network opened in Poland throughout the history - because the other ones were grounded in the times when Poland was occupied by Germany, Russia and the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.

I am trying to find out the annual patronage (ridership) for the tram systems in Krakow, Poznan and Wroclaw. Does anybody have a source of information for this, thank you?

For Wroclaw: 195 million in 2015, up from 155 mln in 2009. But this included trams and buses.

http://wiadomosci.onet.pl/wroclaw/wr...y-rekord/zwk7w

In Poznan it was 200 mln passengers in 2014, again trams and buses.

Yes, on Saturday 19th December 2015 in Olsztyn Poland's 15th tram network was inaugurated. As a matter of fact trams return to the capital of Varmia after exactly 50 years. I suppose the authorities of Olsztyn were jealous because another, smaller city in Warmia -Masuria voivodeship - Elbląg - has trams uninterruptedly since 1895.

Some pictures taken by the Polish user syntech:


New tram and the medieval Olsztyn Castle in the background. Between 1516 and 1521 the famous Polish astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus lived and worked there


In front of the new townhall constructed between 1912 and 1915


New tram and the headquarters of the Warmia-Masuria voivodeship authorities

City of Tarnow (pop. 115.000) in southern Poland used to have tram line. It was canceled during occupation in 1942 by Germans.

W odróżnieniu od Gubina i Kostrzyna w Tarnowie w latach 80 powstały plany "odbudowy" sieci tramwajowej (oczywiście 1435 mm i we współczesnej formie - raczej nie przez wąskie ulice Starego Miasta), niestety spadła ilość pracowników zakładów azotowych (tramwaje miały służyć jako dowóz robotników do tego dużego zakładu), wzrosła ilość prywatnych samochodów, brakowało kasy i uznano, że budowa tramwaju nie ma sensu.

Free public transportation in Poland:



Legend:
Free public transportation in cities and towns for:
1 - Everybody
2 - Towns/Cities residents
3 - Unemployed
4 - Students
5 - Car owners
In brakets (23tys) - population.
tys = thousands

It is interesting that most of bigger towns with free public transportation for everybody (Zory, Belchatow, Polkowice, Lubin) are relatively rich in Polish reality. They have either huge mining industry or power plants within their territories. Also there is only one big city with some kind of free public transportation (for unemployed) - Gdansk.

Well, it's good to be a car owner in Nysa, but it's bad to be an unemployed person without a car in Nysa. This particular town sure knows how to beat people when they're down.

Most of used cars are extremely cheap in Poland. For purpose of using free public transportation you can buy some cheap junk for 500PLN and keep it for years...

This chart has errors. In Głowno it's free for everyone, while in Stryków it's difficult to call it public transport. These are free minibus lines through the villages surrouonding the town, which go only once or twice a day.

In many cities the public transport is free for elder people from some age, for example at least 70 years old (it is so in Łódź). And a very big group of passengers - the students of schools and universities - usually has a 50% discount for tickets. Which are cheap comparing with the western Europe. For example a ticket valid for 40 minutes in Łódź, which is enough for most rides, costs 3,40 PLN (which is less than 1 euro).

Pesa to develop metro train
03 Mar 2016





PESA: Polish rolling stock manufacturer Pesa has announced that it is to develop a metro train design with the aid of a 24m złoty grant from the National Centre for Research & Development. The ‘energy-saving metro with a higher level of comfort and safety’ project was awarded a grant for innovative international projects.

The Bydgoszcz-based supplier currently produces locomotives, electric and diesel multiple-units and trams, but has not so far been involved in the metro sector
