How to get to the center of Warsaw and get around the city
From the Warsaw Chopin Airport to the city center
175 – runs every 15 minutes from 4:27 AM till 10:58 PM, stops in the city center, its last stop is Pl. Piłsudskiego (eng.: Piłsudski Square) (3-minute walking distance to the marathon venue). The route changes for weekends but the first and last stops are always the same.
N32 (night bus) – runs from 11:16 PM till 04:49 AM, you can get off on the Centrum stop (eng.: center) but it’s worth getting off a bit later, at the Metro Świętokrzyska stop – from there it’s a 10-minute walking distance to the marathon venue.
331 – catch this bus to get to the nearest metro station (Metro Wilanowska), it runs from 6:14 AM till 5:54 PM.

After you exit the Arrivals terminal you’ll see the licensed taxi area. The licensed taxis are: Ele Taxi, Sawa Taxi, and Super Taxi. Taxi tariffs differ between companies and should be clearly displayed in the car window. To get to the Warszawa Centralna train station you should pay around PLN 40, and to the marathon venue – around PLN 60.
Important! After you exit the Arrivals terminal, you may be approached by people offering a taxi to the city center. It’s best to ignore them since they usually have very high tariffs and proceed to the licensed taxi area.
If you like Uber, you can ride with them in Warszaw. Their cars stop in the Kiss & Fly area near the Departures terminal (level 1).
IMPORTANT – The Kiss & Fly zone is free of charge for only 7 minutes – so we recommend to order Uber after picking up your luggage.
We recommend using the Jak Dojade portal (eng: how to get to): https://jakdojade.pl/warszawa/trasa.
From the Warsaw Modlin Airport to the city center ( The Warsaw Modlin Airport is located around 35 kilometers from Warsaw)
To get to the train station you need to take a bus that runs every 20-30 minutes. When you get to the train station, catch a Koleje Mazowieckie (Masovian Railways) train to the Warszawa Centralna train station. One-way ticket costs PLN 19. You can buy it online and at the airport. You’ll need around 1 hour to get from the airport to the city center.
The Modlinbus timetable is aligned with the arrivals timetable. The bus can take you to the city center, it stops next to the Palace of Culture and Science (pol.: Pałac Kultury i Nauki), and to the Warsaw Chopin Airport. You’ll need around 40 minutes to get there if the traffic isn’t heavy of course 😉
