The transport in Poland involves air traffic, waterways, and railroads.

As a country located at the 'cross-roads' of eastern and western Europe, Poland, with its quickly developing economy is a nation with a large and increasingly modern network of transport infrastructure.

The Polish highways networks has traditionally been viewed as chronically underdeveloped and lacking in basic modern infrastructure; however, thanks in large part to membership of the European Union, this situation is rapidly changing for the better and in the next decade Poland plans to have a modern network of highways comparable to those in western Europe. The country's most important waterway is the river Vistula. The largest seaports are the Port of Szczecin and Port of Gdańsk. Air travel is generally used for international travel, with many flights originating at Warsaw Chopin Airport. Railways connect all of Poland's major cities and the state-owned PKP corporation, through its subsidiaries, runs a great number of domestic and international services of varying speed and comfort. In addition to this most Polish voivodeships have their own provincial rail service providers. Many major Polish cities have rapid transit systems (typically tram networks) and public transport is available in most areas throughout the country.
