We recently celebrated Grandmother’s Day and Grandfather’s Day. This is a good opportunity to remind ourselves of the rules under which senior citizens can enjoy discounts and free rides on Szczecin’s public transport.
The rules regarding discount prices and free rides indicate several dozen groups of citizens entitled to enjoy free or cheaper rides. It is therefore worth getting to know the options for cheaper travel. We would like to remind you of the options available to the three oldest groups of passengers:
- Free ride ‒ People over 70 years of age can use public transport within Szczecin and the municipalities with which we have concluded agreements completely free of charge. To this end, senior citizens are required to have an identity document on them to prove their age.
- 50% discount ‒ People over 67 but up to 70 years of age ‒ passengers are required to have an identity document on them to prove their age.
- 50% discount ‒ Pensioners over 55 years of age (women) or 60 years of age (men), as well as people on disability and survivor pensions – passengers are required to produce a valid pension certificate issued by the relevant authority of the Republic of Poland, along with an identity document (in the case of people receiving a survivor pension from the Pension Office of the Ministry of Interior and Administration, a certificate confirming such entitlement, issued by the Pension Office of the Ministry of Interior and Administration, must be produced along with an identity document).
We would like to further remind you that there are seats on buses and trams that are dedicated to senior citizens. It is also good practice to give up your seat if you see someone who is elderly or needs to sit down.
