There’s no such thing as a free ride (to Bronowice)

As the leaves fade and fall away with autumn, so do the orange traffic barrels of Krakow road construction along ul. Królewska and the free buses that went with them.

Starting on 31 August, buses 704 and 713 between Bronowice and Stary Kleparz – which had replaced trams running to Bronowice, closed for road renovation – will be liquidated. In their place will be but 708, which will operate using normal ticket fares and will have the following route:

  • Bronowice Małe
  • Bronowice Wiadukt
  • Wesele
  • Bronowice
  • Głowackiego
  • Uniwersytet Pedagogiczny
  • Biprostal
  • Urzędnicza
  • Plac Inwalidów
  • Grottgera
  • Biskupia
  • Stary Kleparz

The city hopes to complete the construction project on Królewska by the end of September.

You can find more information on public transport routes on the MPK website or with third-party site/app Jakdojade.

    Thank you for a useful article on a subject close to my heart – the Krakow transport system.

    Is there any truth to the rumour that line 708 will be extended as far as Balice and that Krakow Airport will be re-named Kaczynski International? (Or was I dreaming?)

      You may think this is all a joke, Salwator, and I’m sorry to be bringing politics into this article, but I think Polish patriots who don’t happen to be Catholic deserve an apology from this man. Calling anyone who is outside of the Catholic Church ‘nihilists’, as he did, is not worthy of anyone in his responsible position. It’s long past his retirement time. It seems that anytime, he says something in public, he causes division.

        I was being satirical. But it wouldn’t surprise me if Kaczynski Airport becomes a reality sometime in the future if PiS gets re-elected.
