Changes in the ZTM transport operation
Changes in the urban transport operation in Świętochłowice, Zabrze, Bytom, Dąbrowa Górnicza, and Tychy will be introduced in the first days of May. Modifications are related to investments carried out by Tramwaje Śląskie, but they also are a response to passenger proposals and needs. While free weekend lines, going to Paprocany, will return in Tychy.
We encourage to learn the information about changes in the transport operation. A few timetable modifications are under preparation. It is worth remembering about them.
From 1 May
At the request of Bytom residents changes are introduced in the timetable of bus line No 183 on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. Changes consists in starting two additional journeys on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays between Bytom Miechowice Pętla and Bytom Dworzec at 6:13 and 22:00 and one additional journey on Sundays and holidays between Bytom Dworzec and Bytom Miechowice Pętla at 21:59.
Also the timetable of bus line No 969 will be changed. On working days buses after leaving the ‘Siewierz Dom Kultury’ stop will be directed to serve Tuliszów, so that the school youth would be able to return from school after the end of classes. Journeys from the aforementioned stop are delayed: from 15:10 to 15:15; and from 16:10 to 16:20. To unify timetables also those journeys on working days during school breaks and holidays are delayed in the same way.

The new timetable assumes moving the departure on Sundays and holidays from the ‘Wojkowice Żychcice Cmentarz’ stop 5 minutes earlier - from 04:11 to 04:06, to enable getting to the area of Huta Katowice in Dąbrowa Górnicza to bus line No 606, at the ‘Będzin Aleja Kołłątaja’ stop.

From the 5th of December the POP in Gliwice will be situated in the newly opened Transfer Centre. Passengers will be capable of handling their matters and transfer to the selected means of transport in one place.
On the 3rd of December, in relation to the commissioning of the Transfer Centre in Gliwice, the operation of approx. 50 bus lines will change within the city area. The Metropolitan Transport Authority (ZTM) emphasises, that these lines also include such, which routes go outside Gliwice and due to that also residents of e.g. Knurów, Pyskowice, and Zabrze should learn about the modifications. To facilitate the use of urban transport for passengers from these cities, the transport organiser has prepared now additional information materials.
