It is the best way to travel around the Kraków. You can choose trams – getting aroud the city, urban buses – within the city boundaries, agglomeration buses – which connect the city with neighbouring districts.
Single journey adult fare is 4,6 zloty /1 euro. Tickets can be bought from vending machines situated nearby the tram and bus stops, around the city, once on board (then you need to have coins), from the driver (if there is no vending machine on board – then you have to prepare exact change), at certain newsagents or using your mobile phone, via moBILET, mPay or Skycash systems. Please keep in mind that paper tickets need to be validated using special machines once on board, else you will be liable to pay a penalty fare.

We strongly recommend using only licensed taxi companies. Such taxi should have a visible price-list, a taximeter and a company logo with a phone number. The taxi driver should always give you a receipt. Taxis can be ordered by phone, some of them online or at a taxicab stand.
Alternative taxi services Uber and Bolt (much-loathed by Kraków's taxi companies) are also available in Poland, in fact Uber has in chosen Kraków as its European hub. Both services offers cashless transport via their popular worldwide mobile applications. Those already familiar with Uber or Bolt will find Kraków well-covered by their services, however there are some drawbacks.
