Olsztyn is a multifunctional economic, research and cultural centre of the Warmia and Mazury region what results in growing number of cars in the city and urban sprawl. Consequently, it causes serious problems with congestion, parking and other mobility issues.

To solve them, the city develops its public transport system with particular focus on the tram network reintroduced after 50 years. Moreover, a co-operation between the city and the surrounding municipalities has been started to expand the PT on the suburbs.
