The bus station is around the corner from the train station, once you enter the main hub you will see all bus times displayed and ticket booths, where again all the staff speak English and Polish. A one-way ticket costs 7PLN (around £1.46, seriously!) for the 90-minute journey. We headed to our numbered stop and again everything ran exactly on time. I was surprised when the bus pulled up, it doesn’t look at all like a normal UK public bus and instead a private minibus. It was a really comfortable ride and again we saw some amazing countryside, the time passed really quickly. In fact, there were hardly any stops and it was a really smooth journey. The bus stop for Auschwitz is right outside the front of the museum so you couldn’t get closer, I think this probably a more pleasant journey then if you were paying for a private tour.
Krakow itself is totally walkable, so I found no need for transport within the city itself. Travelling beyond Krakow using public transport is a no brainer to me, every journey we took was cheap, easy, and completely comfortable. I don’t know how any of it would have been better if booked privately, so go the public route and travel Like a local in Krakow!
