Transport information in Krakow?

So I'm looking up places to stay in Krakow, and I'm trying to figure out the transportation.
I'm planning to study in the British Council in Krakow, and I found an offer for accommodation but using Google Maps I have no idea how to use transportation. I'm trying to figure out the costs and expenses.

So anyone in Krakow cares to explain and help out?

The British council is basically on the main square (rynek).
So were are you planning to live? And also when you say transportation cost, do you mean by using public transportation?

I usually use this page: - here are prices of monthly tickets.
In summary 48pln for 1 zone and 1 line 94 for all lines in 1 zone.
74 for 1 line in 2 zone and 144 for all lines in 2 zones,

For students of polish university is 50% discount. and for students of foreign universities up to 26years old ( but i think then some card like euro26 is required )

I'm still looking, but Ośrodek Hotelowy Optima has the best offer for the period I'm staying there.

So I'd be going every weekday from:

Malborska 65
30-646 Kraków, Poland
12 655 17 49


Main Market Square 6
30-857 Kraków, Poland
12 428 59 30

and vice versa. How do I know the transportation between those two points and calculate the daily costs?
I tried to use the links by Monitor, but the first link says "system could not find any connections", and honestly I'm not sure how to use the second link :(

Sorry, it's a whole different country so I'm not sure what's this from that. I appreciate your advice in finding my way around town.

because you have wrong address.

Who translates street name???

Main Market Square 6 = Rynek Główny 6

2nd link has prices. You use it to learn prices.

xD well that's what they put in their locatoin in google maps.
But thanks a lot :) so basically; 2.8 PLN per trip, so it'll cost me about 5.6 PLN a dat, correct?
If that is right, now I think I have a pretty good idea about the cost :) Thank you very much Monitor & Phota for helping me out

I think the prices of tickets have gone up - check before you board anything.
