Rail, bus and air transport.

The condition of the railway infrastructure is not satisfactory and it is necessary to modernize and revitalize many lines as soon as possible, it will increase capacity and allow faster movement of travellers in the region.
The local government of the Wielkopolska Region allocates more and more funds to the organization of regional passenger transport every year. They are successively purchasing new rolling stock, carry out periodic repairs (inspection and major) and modernize the owned vehicles. Currently, the Wielkopolska Region owns a total of 73 vehicles, including 49 electric multiple units to operate electrified lines (10 48WE series vehicles, 5 48WEb series vehicles, 22 EN76 series vehicles, 5 EN57AL vehicles, 7 EN57AKW series vehicles) and 24 rail buses with diesel drive for non-electrified lines (3 SA139 series vehicles, 10 SA132 series vehicles, 2 SA134 series vehicles, 7 SA108 series vehicles, 2 SA105 series vehicles). Our rolling stock is adapted to transport disabled people in wheelchairs and bicycles, and is equipped with a modern passenger information system, a monitoring system, air conditioning and defibrillators.
So far, about PLN 1.2 billion has been allocated for the purchase and modernization of rolling stock, including EU funds – more than PLN 440 million, the region's own funds - PLN 703 million, and the state budget – mora than PLN 28 million.

The Henryk Wieniawski Airport Poznań-Ławica is the window to the world for the Wielkopolska Region. After the pandemic period, the number of passengers using its services is steadily increasing. In 2022, 2,252,428 people were checked in and it was possible to fly out in 76 directions.
The existence of an airport, easily accessible and offering many convenient direct and transfer connections is one of the most important factors determining the competitive advantage of regions. Access to air transport is also one of the most important criteria determining the quality of life in a given region, and is a condition for choosing a given region as a location for investment. In 2022, the airport continued development investments, such as: renovation of the surface of the Aircraft Parking Apron (PPS1), replacement of the restricted area fence in the northern part of the airport, modernization of the taxiway and cybersecurity.
In the Wielkopolska Region, there are also six smaller airports with a sports and service function (in Bednary, Kobylnica, Kąkolewo, Michałków near Ostrów Wielkopolski, in Strzyżewice near Leszno and Żerniki) and 48 airfields.
