How to get around within Warsaw
Warsaw is well-served by a bus system, and will take passengers to any part of the city, considering you got the bus with the right route. Ask the driver in case you have doubts. Buses can be hailed off the street (just wave your hand), and you can inform the driver that you want to get off by pressing the red stop button on the bus. Night buses are available.
Be careful when choosing taxis, as there are taxis that are officially registered and non-taxi carriers. Registered taxis have a set rule for fares that include the additional charges, and the driver is required to give the passenger a receipt upon request. Tipping is not obligatory or customary. On the other hand, non-taxi carriers (which normally go under the guise of being a taxi) charge their passengers however they please. In order to distinguish the two, know that registered taxi drivers will not approach you to ask you to avail of their service. They will also have their taxi number written on the front door, and the base fare is displayed on the passenger door window.
