Car traffic in downtown Poznań is heavy and there is a lack of parking within the University area, so the easiest way to get to the university is by using public transport. It consists of tram and bus lines. There are also special lines which run at night. In Poznań, one 15 min ride will cost you 2 PLN but half if you are a student. It is worthwhile to buy a monthly ticket for reduced fees on trams and buses. There is a double fare on express buses. You can easily recognise the fast bus by a large capital letter (not number). The monthly pass costs 40 PLN (for students). Three month and six month tickets are also available.
