 How to get from Chopin Airport?

  • By bus

Buses 175 and 188 serve Chopin airport. The bus 175 goes to the city center and then to the vicinity of the old town. You can check its route here:

Bus 188 bypasses the city center and goes to the other side of the Vistula river, but can get you to the Politechnika metro station.

  • By train

The fastest way to get to most places from the airport is to take the train. There are signs all over the airport pointing you to the train station. From there, every 15 min a train leaves in the direction of the city center. Be aware that Koleje Mazowieckie trains (the green ones) do not accept single fare tickets! Only daily (and longer) tickets are accepted in the green-yellow trains, so if you have a single fare or time limit ticket please make sure to take the white-red trains (SKM Warszawa). 1 in 4 trains every hour is the Koleje Mazowieckie train, all the others are SKM Warszawa and are safe to take.

  • By taxi

A taxi from the airport to the city center should not cost more than 40 PLN (during the day). Be aware that there are scam taxis that will charge a much higher fare- but the airport has designed a special area for recommended taxis just outside the exit. No unauthorized taxis are allowed to use the first lane outside, so feel safe to use it.

  • By Uber

If you decide to travel by Uber it will not pick you up at arrivals (lower level). You will need to take the stairs or elevator to level 1 (departures). Uber to the city center should cost you ca. 25 PLN.
