Abstract: Efficient algorithms are obtained for integrating holomorphic differential one-forms along simple geodesic lines on those compact Riemann surfaces which are given as quotients of the upper half-plane by a congruence subgroup $ \Gamma $ of $ {\text{SL}}(2,\mathbb{Z})$. We may assume that every geodesic line passes through a cusp which is unique up to $ \Gamma $-equivalence. The algorithms we construct run in polynomial time in the height of this cusp.
