MOVING AROUND KRAKOW

EURO 2012 – ORGANISATION OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT.

 

Preliminary forecasts for the number of visitors and the fact of their rotating presence during EURO 2012 do not imply the need to introduce extensive changes in the organisation of public transport in Krakow.

As at this point there are no reliable data as to the expected number of participants, it is unfeasible to define the size of the possible required extension of the public transport offer.

 

PLANNED CHANGES in the organisation of public transport in Krakow during Euro 2012.

 

During the EURO 2012 championship, the following bus routes will be suspended: No 152, 502 and 522. The following bus routes will be launched in their place:

 

  • route No E02, identical to route No 502, but serving all stops on the way;
  • route No E52, route similar to route No 152, with modification in ul. Bora-Komorowskiego; in situations of increased demand for transport at the Balice Airport, the route will be directed from Olszanica to the Port Lotniczy (Airport) final stop.
  • route No 532, route similar to route No 522, with modification in ul. Konopnickiej, al. Trzech Wieszczy, ul. Piłsudskiego and ul. Dobrego Pasterza;
  • route No 304, alteration of route from Rondo Matecznego through ul. Piłsudskiego.

 

The above changes will be binding from 2 June until 1 July 2012.

 

TRANSPORT SERVICING OF BALICE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.

 

The main means of public transport devoted to the servicing of the Balice International Airport and providing connections with Krakow are trains, and this means of transport is organised, as per its competences, by the Małopolskie Voivodeship Marshal’s Office and effected by PKP “Przewozy Regionalne” Sp. z o.o. The above connections run approximately every 30 minutes.
