Airport Connections


Getting to and from Jan Kochanowski University in Kielce is simple. Here you can find resources to help you plan your journey to the university from nearby cities. Depending on where you are arriving from, the best connections would make your final landing in: 


For planning your trip for how to get to Kielce once you have landed in Poland: E-podroznik- This is a great website where you can find all possible connections by bus or train around Poland. This website may redirect you to buy tickets for buses from the provider, or sometimes you can buy them directly through this site: 


For getting around a city with local transportation (city buses, trams): Jakdojade- You can either use the website, or buy the app directly on your iPhone or Android. You can check connections from airports to train stations or bus stations, and even sometimes buy bus/tram tickets directly through the app (depending on the city). Just pick your current city, and start searching for your route:

Tip: Do NOT buy a bus/metro/tram ticket with a student discount until you have obtained your student card with its appropriate sticker showing its validity. If you do buy a discounted ticket, you will be expected to present a valid student card should ticket inspectors ask. No student card= a fine worth way more than the cost of a regularly priced ticket. Do not risk it! 

*For students that are 26 and above: unfortunately, as of the moment you turn 26 you no longer qualify for the student discount on transportation, even if you have a valid sticker on your student card.

Tip: If you are in a rush from your flight in one of the bigger cities, you might think it would be easier to just take a taxi. However, taxi drivers may be tempted to take a longer, more expensive route to get you to where you need to be. Sadly some like to rip off foreigners, thinking you will not know better anyways. If they are available, Uber or Bolt (Taxify) may be a better option. Drivers are more likely to speak English and to offer you great service, since customer ratings are very important for them. 


Trains in Poland: PKP- The official website of Polish State Railways, Poland's dominant railway operator. You can buy your tickets either in person at the station, or directly online:

Tip: Do NOT buy a train ticket with a student discount until you have obtained your student card with its appropriate sticker showing its validity.  You are expected to show a piece of identification to the ticket inspector EVERY train ride. If you do buy a discounted ticket, you will be expected to present a valid student card as well as a piece of ID. No student card= a fine likely worth more than the cost of a regularly priced ticket. Do not risk it! 

*For students that are 26 and above: unfortunately, as of the moment you turn 26 you no longer qualify for the student discount on transportation, even if you have a valid sticker on your student card.


Bus companies: FlixBus/PolskiBus- These two companies recently merged together, but offer great connections around Poland and even to nearby countries. That's why your bus might be green/orange or red/white, depending on the original company logo. It's a great way to plan either your trip to the university from airports like those in Warsaw or Krakow, or to plan a weekend city-break trip!
