New logo of Warsaw Public Transport
As at the beginning of 2018 Warsaw introduced a new logo of the Warsaw Public Transport. The logo, chosen in a competition, refers to the traditional symbols of the Polish capital. Thanks to it, the symbols on the public means of transport are made homogeneous.
Until recently, there were many public transport symbols in Warsaw, including the conspicuous logotypes of the Public Transport Authority of Warsaw, the promotional mark “Fall in Love with the Public Transport Warsaw”, and also the emblem of the capital of Poland. At the beginning of this year they were replaced with a single, unifying logo.
The logo of the Warsaw Public Transport was designed by the TypeThree consortium. It won the competition organized by the Public Transport Authority of Warsaw in cooperation with the Association of the Applied Graphic Designers. The designs submitted were assessed by a professional jury, composed e.g. of professors from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw.
The logo of the public transport in the Polish capital is a stylized “t”, resembling the Warsaw Mermaid with its shape. In this way it refers to the traditional symbol of the capital of Poland, and yet has a modern form. The selected logo identifies the “Warsaw nature” of the public transport and of particular components of the whole public transport system in the city.
The symbol of the Warsaw Public Transport can be seen on all buses, trams, metro trains and Warsaw Fast City Rail. It was placed also on the stop shelters and posts, city cards, new cardboard tickets, ticket machines, Veturilo bike stations, Passenger Service Points, P+R car parks, as well as on the vessels of the Warsaw Tourist Lines going on the Vistula river in summer.
The change of logos on the vehicles of the Warsaw Public Transport was accompanied by the informational campaign devoted to the new logo.
