KRAKOW | Public Transport

Tramways in Krakow (Poland)

It is operated since 1882. There are 25 ordinary and 2 supporting lines with a total length of 322 kilometres (200 miles). The total system length for the end of 2008 was 86.5 kilometres (53.7 mi), including a 1.4 kilometres (0.87 mi) tram tunnel with two underground stops.

More information :

Man GT6 (Nuremburg)

Produced between 1962 and 1966 for various German cities. Kraków was buying GT6 cars from Nuremberg between 1994 and 2004. Between 1994 and 2009, some of them were operated with B4 trailers.


















E1 (Vienna)

Produced between 1966 and 1976. Imported from Vienna since 2004. Some cars have got a partial electronic passenger information system.















Konstal 105Na

Produced between 1979 and 1992. It is 13.5-metre (44 ft)-long and can form longer trains (theoretically up to 5 cars, in practice the 2- and 3-car trains are operated). Due to the unreliability and the poor technical design, it is slowly replaced by second-hand trams from Germany.















Bombardier NGT6

Bombardier NGT6 cars are low-floor trams bought since 2000. There have been three deliveries so far: 12 cars in 2000, 14 cars in 2003 and 24 cars between 2007 and 2008. The trams have an electronic passenger information system.




















































Duewag GT8S (Düsseldorf)

Produced between 1973 and 1975 for Düsseldorf, Germany. In September 2009 MPK Kraków bought one of the cars for testing, and decided to import next 27 cars of this class. During the modernization, they were equipped with an electronic passenger information system. In the near future, they are planned to get a low-floor module. It is worth noting that the cars retained their own rolling stock numbers from Düsseldorf.

















EU8N (Vienna)

In 2008, MPK Kraków imported 25 E6+C6 trams from Vienna. Except one of them for a short period of time, they never appeared in a normal service, because they had to go through a general reconstruction. Using spare parts from the unnecessary C6 trailers, Autosan company produced a new low-floor module which was installed between the two sections of E6. The final assembly took place in MPK Kraków, where the trams got a new look. The new trams were given EU8N symbol. The internal equipment includes electronic passenger information system and air conditioning. The first EU8N appeared in service on 2 July 2010.













MAN N8S-NF (Nuremberg, Essen)

hese cars were produced between 1976 and 1977. In early 90-ies, they were added a low-floor section . Since 2006, they are imported from Nuremberg. One of cars is a former narrow gauge M8S from Essen, bought initially for replacement parts, but later adapted to a standard gauge. It does not have a low-floor section. During the modernization, they have got an electronic passenger information system.

I would have thought that the Kraków Balice Airport Express train would have far more coaches. Kraków is a popular and busy entry airport in Poland and if people are to be encouraged to take the train into Kraków from Balice airport rather than the bus than surely more coaches need to be added to make it longer and to give it more capacity, even if there is a lot of standing room
(not practical if you have lots of luggage)

From my experience I can tell you that it's enough for the current needs. At least I have never seen it really crowded. Maybe it happens but not really on a regular basis.

Jelcz M121M CNG

Low floor bus, variable speed in the light of the front and middle door, friendly environment. Featuring eco-engine powered by compressed natural gas CNG MAN. The completion of the automatic four speed manual gearbox VOITH bus is a great alternative to expensive natural gas buses in the 100% low floor.
