Public transport

Public transportation in Cracow is safe, fast and relatively cheap. Below you can find some tips how to get to most important places. Please remember that you need a ticket to make a ride. Ticket machines can be found at many stops and in most vehicles (if there is no ticket machine in a vehicle the driver should sell you a ticket). Stationary machines accepts cash and credit cards. In vehicles some accepts only coins while others only cards. If the tariff table looks complicated use just a 50-minute ticket (4.60 PLN). It should cover most of one way trips in Cracow. The ticket must be punched once after first boarding immediately. You can change to another vehicles with that kind of ticket as long as it is valid (50 minutes from the punch). The vehicle must be one of Cracow public transport vehicles of course (all trams and most buses; they are mostly in blue-white and have displays with line numbers).
Going to or from the airport, please take into account that it is located outside the city boundary hence you need to buy a ticket for "Strefa I+II" (double zone). The price is the same (4.60 PLN), the look can be different.
