25.09.2017 – KATOWICE – KRAKOW (CRACOW). THE FASTEST AND CHEAPEST WAYS TO GO

.

WE SUDDENLY HAD TO GO TO THE CENTRE OF KRAKOW. SUPPOSEDLY IT IS NOT A PROBLEM, HOWEVER IT IS GOOD TO KNOW WHAT THE POSSIBILITIES ARE, THEIR PROS AND CONS.

CAR – THE MOST CONVENIENT AND MOST EXPENSIVE MEDIUM. THE GREATEST ADVANTAGE OF COURSE IS FULL INDEPENDENCE. IN ADDITION TO THE COST OF FUEL (ABOUT 80 km) YOU HAVE TO PAY THE FEE: MOTORWAY (20 PLN) AND PARKING (FROM 3 PLN + / HOUR). BUT NOTE: FOR 4 PEOPLE THE COSTS WILL NOT BE AS LOW AS THE BUS RIDE, BUT WILL NOT BE FAR FROM IT … IF YOU ADD TO THAT THE COSTS OF MOST FUEL-EFFICIENT CAR AND YOU WILL PARK SOMEWHERE FOR NOTHING, THEN GO FOR IT (GO BY CAR) … ?

BUS – THE BUS STATION KATOWICE, PIOTRA SKARGI ST (BY THE “SUPERSAM”) – THE KRAKOW BUS STATION ON THE REARS OF THE PKP RAILWAY STATION. TRAVELLING TO CRACOW IS STOPPING EARLIER AT THREE STOPS ON DEMAND: ROUNDABOUT OF THE VICTIMS OF KATYN (RONDO OFIAR KATYNIA), AGH STUDENT’S VILLAGE AND CZARNOWIEJSKA ST BY THE MAIN AGH LIBRARY.
FOR THOSE WHO TRAVEL FROM KRAKOW TO KATOWICE THERE ARE ONLY TWO POSSIBILITIES: THE BUS STATION NEXT TO THE KRAKOW MAIN RAILWAY STATION OR THE MODLNICZKA (LEROY MERLIN).

THIS ROUTE SUPPORTS SEVERAL LINES. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND UNIBUS AND INTER – THE TWO COLLABORATING COMPANIES. THESE TWO CARRIERS TRAVEL FROM TUESDAY TO THURSDAY EVERY 20 MINUTES, AND ON FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY AND MONDAY EVERY 15 MINUTES. TRAVEL TIME – DEPENDING ON STOPS – BETWEEN 55 AND 70 min. FIRST COURSE AT 5:30 a.m.; LAST 9:30 p.m.  TICKET PRICE 14 PLN, REDUCED 12. WHEN YOU BUY A RETURN TICKET YOU SAVE 3 PLN (OVER 10%).
AT NIGHT YOU CAN TAKE THE INFOBUS, LEO EXPRESS (STOPS AT THE BALICE AIRPORT) AND POLSKI BUS. I CONSIDER THE TRIP BY BUS TO BE OPTIMAL. ESPECIALLY IF WE HAVE SOME FLEXIBLE HOURS AND WE CONSIDERING THE CONVENIENCE AND PRICE. ??
