How to: public transport tickets in Toruń?

Acquiring tickets for public transportation is one of the key things that a university student is confronted with daily. However, doing that in a new city, especially in a new country, might be a daunting task. Fortunately, Toruń allows for a variety of methods that you can utilize to buy your ticket.

Ticket machines

A multitude of ticket machines have been installed by MZK in Torun. They can be set to a variety of different languages, such as: English, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, French, and German – so no more misunderstandings in kiosks! You can find them on some stops around Toruń. They are also your only option to buy a ticket after stepping into the bus or tram. Some of these ticket machines only accept coins. It’s therefore a good idea to keep spare change in your pockets, if you rely on this buying method. Remember that you ALWAYS have to validate the paper tickets bought in these machines! Validators are typically located next to the bus’s or trams’ doors.
