Publication date: 07.04.2022

Price changes will apply to the common ticket offer, which enables Koleje Śląskie passengers to use the entire urban transport in the GZM. ZTM ticket prices in force in buses, trams and trolleybuses don't change.

Changes in the price list comprise the common offer of Koleje Śląskie and the Metropolitan Transport Authority (ZTM). They apply to:

  • daily tickets (ZTM name - ‘24h + Kolej (Railway)’, Koleje Śląskie name - ‘Superticket 24 Zone M’), which enable passengers to travel without any limits by Koleje Śląskie trains throughout the Metropolis and by all ZTM buses, trams, and trolleybuses during 24 hours,

The common offer comprises common settlements of such tickets sales. They consists of a railway part, which is the share of Koleje Śląskie, and a bus, tram, and trolleybus part, which is the share of ZTM. The change of Metroticket and daily tickets price list from the 8th of April applies to the increase in the railway part.
