Anyway, it is a document that deserves study - it contains much valuable detail about Our City and how it is likely to develop. It also contains lots of interesting facts and figures.
This study doesn't stop at Warsaw's city limits, but takes in the surrounding gminas, or municipalities (one administrative level down from powiat or district). It is an acknowledgement that Warsaw is no longer a city, but a metropolis, spreading far out into the surrounding countryside (the area covered by this study stretches some 70km north to south and over 60km east to west). A joined-up public transport strategy is essential if the main arteries into the capital are not to be clogged up by exurbanites desperately commuting by car for want of an alternative.
Below: towns like Góra Kalwaria are included in this survey; it is 30km south of Warsaw city centre (as the crow flies) and 15km south of the city's borders. It is lucky enough to be connected to the capital by a rail link.
Below: investment in the bus fleet means that all Warsaw buses today are low-floor types; the old Ikaruses, once the mainstay of MZA, the city's bus operator, disappeared finally in December 2013.
