Metropolitan lines (metrolines) are a system of ZTM bus connections, which will improve travelling through the Metropolis till the time of Metropolitan Railway construction. They will make the bus offer more attractive by increasing the frequency of journeys, nearlyround-the-clock service, and the introduction of regular departure intervals.

The implementation of metropolitan lines, marked with ‘M’ letter, commonly referred to as M-s, is divided into three stages, forming one consistent system.

  • Number of lines: 31.
  • Number of journeys: on working days: 2236, on Saturdays: 1464, on Sundays: 1367.
  • Operational work: 19,751,848 vehicle-km/year.
  • Cost estimate: PLN 144,710,584 per year.
