From the center take bus 4 to the stop called ''Elizówka-giełda''.  Where you get out is right next to a petrol station on national road 19 heading north. Walk uphill from the bridge for a couple of hundred meters to where the terrain becomes flat and drivers can see you. This is a good spot even at night (if you have reflective gear), since drivers have to slow down a bit and be cautious of a pedestrian crossing.
There is a good spot on Aleja Warszawska. Take bus #18 or #20 and get off at the bus stop ''Skansen'' (#18 turns right before it stops). Hitch from the bus stop at the main road. Both busses run from the ''Ogród Saski'' (Saxon Garden) close to the city center. If you use a sign with ''Warszawa'' or ''Wa-wa'' you have a good chance of getting a direct lift.

From the center take bus 24 to the final stop called "Elizówka-giełda".  Where you get out is right next to a petrol station on the "highway" 19 heading north.  You can try asking at the petrol station, or immeadiatly on the other side of the bridge there is a big place where cars can stop and you can hitch on the road, though they go pretty fast.

No good advice here. It is quite difficult to get out of Lublin in this direction, because there is no real bypass and many streets merge on to the main one with two or three lanes on which cars go quite fast and there rarely is any place to stop. If you are passing through from Warsaw, definitely get out before Lublin.

Alternative: From the main railway station or bus station you could also try to take a bus to Świdnik, a town nearby.
