BOLT in Lublin
Did you know that through your BOLT application you can also rent electric scooters in Lublin? Yes, in 2020, the BOLT company expanded its offer for Lublin residents with the service of renting electric scooters per minute. You do not need to download a separate application or make an additional registration – you can do everything in the standard BOLT application, which you probably already have. The cost per minute of rent is only PLN 0.50 – stay safe and have fun on the streets of Lublin 😉
Have you ever wondered what those metal lines/dots at the railway station, bus station or in the subway are? Yes, we are talking about those lines which are realy slippery if you have wet shoes. Surely, if you travel a lot, you have seen them in many places in Poland.
Do you know what those are?
These are special ‘guides’ for blind people called ‘invisible paths’ and are designed to help those people orientate themselves in the space of a station or a subway. So next time, while waiting for the train or a bus, try not to block these paths with your suitcase or backpack.
Have you seen those in Lublin?
There are timetables on every bus stop. Some of the bus stops have the electronic timetables, so you can easily tell when your bus is up to arrive or if it’s delayed because of the traffic etc.
If you need to check the timetables, the bus fares or the bus lines, go to www.ztm.lublin.eu.
You can buy the bus tickets in kiosks, ticket machines (they are located in some buses) and some bus stops. If there’s no ticket machine or kiosk, you can eventually buy the ticket at the bus driver, but you will pay more.
Moving through the city
Lublin is all connected with a Google maps. You can find places and streets you were looking for, and even take a real tour by using Google Earth where streets are scanned by satellites. Just write the name of the street in the search box, or start from any place to roam through.
You can even sneak at your friends if they are studying or not!
Moving through the city can’t get easier! Streets have names. Buildings have numbers and each house or apartment has its number too. The word street in polish is ,,ulica’’, and it’s usually abbreviated as ,,ul’’ before street name. For instance, ul. Chopina 14/82 means Chopina street, building nr 14 and room (or apartment) nr 82. Follow this address and you will find the most beautiful people in town. Yes it’s us, most welcome!
Through Lublin by bike
Lublin has about 110 kilometers of bicycle paths that lie on the different parts of the city. Additionally, during spring, summer and autumn everyone has a possibility to rent a bicycle or even a tandem bicycle.
Did you know what are these „buses on the ropes”? These are trolleybuses – buses working on electricity connected with the electric construction. This kind of communication is provided only in few cities in Poland, Lublin is among them. The first electric construction for trolleybuses was opened in 1953.
If you need to travel by train we encourage you to use the Polish Train website. The main train station in Lublin is on Plac dworcowy 1. The tickets can be bought via Internet, on the train station and in trains. However, the ticket bought in the train from the ticket collector can be more expensive.
