Train commuters face inconveniences

Till April 27th, trains from Krakow will not travel to Skawina, Wadowice or Zakopanne. The change is due to works being done at the ‘Kraków Sanktuarium’ station, which started a few days ago. Commuters are especially frustrated over the fact that the only information about this inconvenience was on the PKP Intercity site, but not on any of the bulletins posted at the stations concerning the upcoming project at “Kraków Sanktuarium”. Until April 27th, passengers on these routes will have to take the bus. [Love Krakow]
