I'm going to take the local train S3 from Warsaw Central rail station to Chopin airport.

I have some question on the ticket procedure. According to Internet, the trip takes ca 20min.

  1. Is a normal 20min ticket enough, from the machines?
  2. I read that I have to validate the ticket.

    2.1 Is it possible to do this inside train?

    2.2 If not, after validating the ticket outside the train, I think 20min is not enough anymore, since I validate it before train arrives.

    2.3 So, how to procedure?

The validators outside trains are only on metro. S3 is a city train, and the validators are inside the trains.

However, if the trip takes longer for any reason (for example, many passangers getting in/out has delayed the departure), it is still your responsibility to travel on valid ticket.

  • So, to be legal, I should have a ticket for zone 1 and also the duration of trip can not be 27min, even inside zone 1?

  • Because in some schedule, the same origin/destination takes more time, more than 20min.
