The price of a one-way ticket depends on the distance traveled and is calculated according to the distance measured every 6km.

SKM tickets can be purchased in ticket dispenser machines and at station desks. Tickets obtained at the desk require validation in a stamping machine prior to the actual departure. The cheapest are tickets for one-way journey without leaving the train. Schedule of trains: skm.pkp.pl
