In order to facilitate your stay in Szczecin, we would like to provide you with some helpful information.
Szczecin has a dense network of trams and buses which is convenient to use. Hotels listed in the Accommodation page are all at walking distance from the conference site. But if you would like to use trams and/or buses, you just need to buy a 15-minute ticket for 2 PLN.
You can buy tickets at one of the ubiquitous kiosks around the city, at ticket machines inside most of the trams (enter the front coach, payment by card or coins) and buses or at ticket machines on the main interchange tram stops. If the ticket machine inside a tram does not work, you can also buy a ticket from the conductor using coins.
You need to validate tickets you bought out of the vehicle by stamping them once in one of validation machines inside a tram or bus. Tickets bought inside a tram or bus are already validated.
Bus and tram stops that are marked with “nż” (= “na żądanie”) are stops on request. You need to press one of the stop buttons inside a bus (or tram) to exit there and when you wait for a bus at an “nż” stop, you need to wave your arm in order to make the bus stop.
Caution: For night busses, which use a number like 5xx , all stops are on request!
Remark: Do not use busses marked with a letter (A to E). These are express busses and cost twice as much.

Moving through Szczecin by taxi is another option, because still quite cheaper than other cities.

We strongly recommend to choose a taxi from reliable companies like e.g. Taxi4You (if you do not find one of their taxis, you can order one by calling +48 914 833 833), City Taxi, Radio Taxi or Mix Taxi.
