PUBLIC TRANSPORT AND TAXI
Warsaw has a very convenient public transportation system with two Metro lines and numerous bus and tram connections.
If you plan to use the public transport in Warsaw, it may be convenient to purchase a 24 hour ticket which is valid on all public transport. The ticket entitles to unlimited number of journeys for 24 hours from its validation.
You may use any door to enter a bus or tram (you do not have to validate the ticket with the driver/operator). Tickets should be validated (in the validators) immediately after boarding the vehicle.
Here are selected contact phones to TAXI companies that have reasonable prices:
We suggest using THIS(http://www.kantorwarszawa.pl/index_uk.php) exchange office (15 minutes from the conference vanue). There is an another exchange office located even closer to the conference venue (in the Prus bookstore, 200 meters from the conference venue) but it offers very disadvantageous rates so our suggestion is to avoid it.
