Poznan and Gdansk have great public transportation. Both cities make it easy for anyone to get around without a car. Taxis are always available though not the cheapest method of cross-city connection. There are trams running on every street almost. The secret is that the trams are on an honor system that most Poles don’t always hold to. Making an already inexpensive fare even cheaper – free. The trams have their own lanes in intersections and have to abide by traffic signals and even pedestrian awareness like cars. Polish people adhere to crosswalk signals pretty strictly, possibly because there is so much to be aware of if you’re thinking of crossing on red – cars, buses, trams, etc.
