Couple of tips:
The best way to buy a ticket is to find a ticket machine.
You can also buy it at newsagents', usually situated near the bus stops. Ask for a single fare ticket (bilet jednorazowy), which entitles to a journey on one vehicle. Don't forget to validate it on a bus.
Do not take 'no-name' taxis that haven't got the word 'Taxi' in their logo. Take only these ones which have also the name of a company, for example:
Elle Taxi (+48 22 811 11 11),
Korpo Taxi (+48 22 561 91 00)
Sawa Taxi (+48 22 644 44 44)
