Hitchhiking out

Take a bus to Kamienna / Wyszyńskiego, which is the name of three bus stops at a big intersection in the Northeast of the city. Head northwards onto the street called Aleja Kardynała Stefana Wyszyńskiego, where you will already see an Orlen petrol station. Directly opposite of it is your hitching spot: A long turning lane with plenty of space for people to stop (leading to a street called Modrzewiowa). As of October 2019, if you use OpenStreetMap, you'll see a bus stop called Armii Krajowej - Cmentarz here; it doesn't exist anymore, hence the necessity to get to Kamienna / Wyszyńskiego first.

Southwest towards Poznań 5 E 261

Get to Błonie (the last stop of many buses e.g. 52, 52, 59, 62, 69, 92, N32). From there walk along the road, pass the gas station (it's pointless to catch a car here - only local traffic), go by bridge over the rail tracks and go straight for 100 m. There is a perfect spot for those people going to Szubin, Żnin or further to Poznań, Wrocław.

Southeast towards Inowrocław 25

You need to take bus no. 80 to the airport, then get off on the Jana Pawła II - Wąbrzeska or Jana Pawła II - Ziemska station.

East towards Toruń 80

To get to the point you need to take one of the buses going to the station Fordońska- Wiadukt (65, 81, 33N). Then cross the bridge over Vistula river (Most Fordoński, approximately 800 m long)and walk 500 m more close to Strzyżawa. There is a bus station and a perfect spot for hitchhikers going from Bydgoszcz to Toruń and Warsaw.

Public Transport

There is a good website showing you how to get from one point to another by public transport in major Polish cities (in Polish and English).
